  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    I like it, but it is also quite dry from the wood. Maybe also day form. But this one is a nice whisky with the Sringbank typical light peat notes. I had too little calvados to consciously taste the calvados, but an apple fruit note is not to deny the whisky.
    • Nose
      great fruity Springbank nose. Intense, apples, some peat. Very fresh and delicious
    • Taste
      Here comes the Springbank out. Peat, orange peel, salt, but also some aromas, probably from the Calvados barrel
    • Finish
      Spicy oak, peat, some salt and fruit (a little apple, a little orange peel) and a tart finish.

  2. Gere scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    definitely not my favorite spring bank
    • Nose
      Oily almost a little petrol but also light smoky notes. Slightly salty with light citrus fruits over time
    • Taste
      On the tongue first tingling then a little peppery. Shortly a nice sweetness comes out almost like caramel
    • Finish
      Short and sweet. at first a little salty then changes to peppery and very slight bitterness

  7. Thermidor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The nose has some petroleum fumes and sweetness, but is otherwise very much like a naked SB. With water I get a soggy teabag with green tea in it, and unripe white fruit. The taste is rounded and inoffensive, but forgettable. Fruity, with faint liquorice and ciderlike sweetness. The finish is fast and quiet. There are some aromas that are not that usual in whisky, but the calvados doesn't push through very strongly.

  8. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Interesting combination of salt, apple and peppery spice.
    • Nose
      tingling salty, bright fruits, apple and pear skin. Sea spray with slightly musty kelp, dark caramel, earthy mineral, moist straw, hazelnuts and almonds (with some water still lavender)
    • Taste
      Spicy pepper tingles on the tongue, again bitter fruit peel, orange zest and grapefruit. Salt caramel, (surprisingly) distinct peat smoke, beeswax and rosemary
    • Finish
      In the finish, dry, ashy smoke that lays over the throat, dry and relatively short

  9. larswehmeier scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Powerful and intense. Cinnamon & baked apple. Almond-cream. Oregano and thyme. Maritime.
      It turns smoky with water.
    • Taste
      Extremely powerful start! Immediately massive salivation. Warming. Pepper. Salty.
      Slightly smoky with water and much sweeter.
    • Finish
      Drying. Slight bitterness. Pretty long.
