  1. Palindrome scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Considering today's market, and how dismal modern whiskies are becoming (in general) this one is pretty good.

  2. rdavek scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    A quintessential example of a whisky out of balance IMHO. Opens very briefly on the classic dried fruits of sherry maturation, along with some hints of coconut and then is abruptly swamped by a bitter onslaught of fiery spice.  As the fire dies down one can single out ginger, cinnamon and clove from the spicy deluge before sulphur slams the finish to a close.  Perhaps there are fans of this style of Springbank, but I'm definitely not one of them.

    John Hansell said" A round of single cask Springers matured completely (not finished) in
    various wine casks for the U.S. market. All four are solid efforts —
    it’s really a matter of personal preference. A general comment: most of
    the single cask releases are matured in some sort of wine or rum cask.
    While this is nice, I would love to see several single cask, cask
    strength, and fully-matured ex-bourbon barrel bottlings offered for a
    change.

    Citrus, exotic wood, and botanicals on the nose and palate. Indeed,
    there’s a bit of intrigue here. Nice balance, with roasted nuts, pecan
    pie, and more exotic wood on the finish."
