  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A punchy Springbank without any kind of delicateness. Seems younger than 14 years to me.
    • Nose
      Yeasty and malty at first. Sweet-sour stable notes as well, Spirty. Some grapes. Whiff of smoke.
    • Taste
      Very hot and spicy. Stuffed peppers and nutmeg. Juicy but astringent. Lots of citrus fruit of lemon and lime.. Also hints of peat. Orange peel. Winey.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Dryness. Liquorice. Becomes bitter at the end.

    This is a little spirit neat but with a little water it is much better.Some nice citrus and icing sugar notes, you need a sweet tooth for this one.
