45 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.10 points

  1. Bowmore Axel scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Dark sherry notes, sweet lemon, a little nutmeg, vanilla and light marine aromas. Very easy accompanying smoke. A nice Schnüffelwhisky.

    Taste: Immediately sweet to Scherry, brown sugar and spices (clove and nutmeg) Nice soft mouthfeel. (49%) Some honey. Slightly astringent. Very lightly with white pepper.

    Finish: Sweet Sherry, Vanilla. A faint idea of smoke. Astringent.

    Conclusion: The limmitet release of 9,000 bottles was stored in very small barrels (60 to 80 liters) from 2001 to 2012 for just over 10 years. Intensive contact with the wood (large surface area) results in faster maturation.
    Such barrels were formerly used in Scotland for smuggling whisky.

  4. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A good, heavily stitched, characteristic, young Springbank, there is a lot of oak in all the components, but I will not say that somewhere we went over it, it turned out well, on the verge. Pleasant and well balanced, deep enough and diverse. I'm not a fan of heavily stuck bolts, but I liked this one.
    • Nose
      Open, raw, malt, sea notes, wet wood, wet skin, red apples, red orange, mineral tones, a little valerian, herring, window putty, miso paste, a little sweet confectionery shades.
    • Taste
      Tender, sweet wood with lemon and orange hues, peppery wave, a little motherwort and valerian, strong black tea, again dense and varied oak, creamy sweetness, fondant, burnt sugar.
    • Finish
      Spicy, pepper, orange peel, a little grapefruit, oak again.

  5. Thermidor scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    This was from an old sample bottle so it may have changed over the years. It's got quite a bit more young wood than SB 10yo, but the added oak doesn't seem an improvement. Rather it's become a bit odd and unbalanced, and with water the finish is bitter.
