  1. mixa scored this whisky 97 points Connoisseur

    Gotta agree with Diego on the score, and even add one extra point to this masterpiece, absolutely flawless Springbank... but only h2h with 23yo you can feel the greatness of both of them, full throttle. Slight supremacy of the latter with some superbly painted details of the nose and overall balance, but gosh... what a duo for ages!!!

    • Nose
      90 90
      A quite mellow and sweet nose, dried banana and some fresh mints, underlying orange peel, and a touch of coconut oil. There are also some celeriac and salted caramel. The nose is elegant, but slightly below average "Samaroli level" if you ask me.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Oily, rather thin and bitter, some fresh leather and herb medicine, very spicy and oaky. Maybe just the sample.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium, vanilla, unripe mango, some coconut, oaky oil, bitterness.
