- Great. 91/92.
Peach, apricot, caramel, vanilla, pineapple and dirty peat. With water more creamy.
Apricot, leather, peat, toffee, pineapple, pepper, lemon and blood orange. Even more peppery when adding water.
Apricot, milk chocolate, caramel, leather, peat, blood orange and pepper.
- Aromatic very classic, exciting Springbank.
Polished and subtle in the nose and - the exact opposite - powerful-powerful on the palate with good length.
Nice fabric and the issue price a real recommendation.
Fine, elegant, subtle. Mineral, fudge, pickaxe, oranges, apricot jam. Then maritime tones and a hint of smoke and peat. Deep.
Starts sweet, fruity (apricots, oranges) and lush, then becomes firmer, more masculine, increases in power. Rich, powerful, powerful. Peppery, mineral, pickaxe. Dense & compact.
Citrus fruits, smoke, mineral, dry, very long, balanced, firm.
- Powerful, complex IB Springbank.
Peat, tropical fruits, citruses, vanilla, sawdust, tobacco and gum.
Oily. Mixed fruit jam, honey, salted caramel, citruses, pepper, peat and pineapple.
Long, fruity, spicy, peaty.
- Not convincing on the nose but when drinking it's like having a dessert which is good
Green fruits, honeydew, hints of rubber
Punchy, very oily, vanilla cream and milk chocolate, good sweetness, little fruity, pineapples
Medium long, warm, zesty, peppery
