  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I was expecting a heavy body and dirty Springbank, but this one is very refined and elegant. Maybe too distillate driven to my taste.
    • Nose
      This is a typical Springbank, more close to recent production, less old style if you ask me. Mineral and barley, pears and leather, light peat, very distillate driven, mellow and clean.
    • Taste
      Mellow, textbook Springbank, peat, little cardboard, pear drop, bee waxes. very elegant
    • Finish
      Medium, waxy, sweet barley

  3. Waykid scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This is really good and complex. The taste, not so much the nose, lacks just a little bit in balancing sweeter tones that would push it over ninety in my book. Solid 90 though.
    • Nose
      Chicory, building plaster, band-aid, doesn't really elicite easily, strong nip of alcohol. Menthol, quite pungent, savoury sweetness, umami. Opens up: I could live with this in my nose for a couple of days. Smoky, haybarn, dark syrupy, orange-peel. Paraffin, citrusy building plaster. A really delicious oakiness, very refined, round and deep.
    • Taste
      Cigar (in the best lighter style of Joya de Nicaragua), a little earthy mustiness, a bit of mushrooms and game, dry sherry and  nutty undertones. Menthol, savoury liquorice, goes a little bit in the direction of Islay chalk and lime-stone. Tar, band-aid and smoke.
    • Finish
      Refined, littlebit smoky and pungent. Good.
