  2. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Excellent wine finish, lightly constrained and stingy in the fragrance, but completely rehabilitates itself in taste / finish - dense, sweet, enchantingly diverse in its components, the strength is not felt at all, pity, balance - everything is included.
    • Nose
      Raw, restrained, dried fruit, barnyard, wool, window putty, lemonade, light mineral tones, grapes, a little raisins, wet dressed leather, cardboard, lime, earthy peaty notes.
    • Taste
      Sweet wine with hot red pepper, raisins, lemonade, kumquats, caramel and creamy sweetness, very dense and rich.
    • Finish
      Continuation of taste, wine-raisin with light ginger burning, confectionery tones - jam cakes, shortcake with sugar icing, a bit of spicy oak with light sourness in the background, at the end clearly show watery peaty notes.

  5. vredensever scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Aroma rich: a lot of sweet fruits, raisins, berries (rather dried), the second wave of wood and varnish, resin and leather, a soft hint of iodine and peat. A couple of drops of water adds wood, lacquer and minerality. The taste is sharp, dense, spicy: pepper and lemon, grapes, sweet ripe fruit, lots of wood, light bitterness, smoke background. With a drop of water is even sweeter and richer. Aftertaste : astringent oak, hot pepper, sweet fruit marmalade, dried fruits, lightest notes of peat and iodine. Conclusion . Whisky is very attractive. Stuffed, piteous, not boring. In my opinion, both the barrel is good, and Springbank's forcing. Well, the fortress is on top! Rating: 88 (n22t22f22b22).
