  1. rdavek scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The first thing that strikes me with this whisky is the voluptuous mouth feel, very nice.  Sulphur is quite prevalent on the nose and palate but I don't find it offensive here.  As with all the 14 year old Springbanks from various sherry casks released in this batch this one is quite austere, dominated by mineral flavors with little of the fruitiness found in the best Springbanks. Not the worst of this batch of single casks, but definitely not worth seeking out IMHO.

    The most disappointing Springbank I have tasted.
    • Nose
      A truckload of sulphur.  It completely overpowers this whisky.
    • Taste
      Some sweet malt, a touch of smoke, and sulphury Oloroso sherry.
    • Finish
      Somewhat long and mouth-drying with a dose of wood tannins.
