  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    86 Sherry Spring. Simple enough, but not bad. In the nose there is a slight frill.

  2. PunxsutawneyPhil scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A lot like the 12yo CS Batch 8, but a bit more bitter.

    Blind tasting of a sample from Kay Meertens.
    • Nose
      Typical Springbank, sweet, a bit salty, oily, full and strong.
    • Taste
      Full, strong. Again typical Springbank, yellow fruit, fatty, oily, little bitter
    • Finish
      Medium long, dry but lingering. Falls a bit flat on it's nose.

    "But I'm also getting at the end of this whisky a touch of fust. And slight tainting. No so good."

  7. Kensay scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    very mediocre spring, there is no desire even to write in more detail

    Why pay this price when the 10-year-old is far better?
