  1. Seele scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    N maple syrup, orange fudge, grass, warm and comfortable even a little rich
    The mouth is very oily, like a piece of fudge, pear, pineapple, bread, honey, vanilla, and a little mineral after that
    F medium, pepper deduction points: the taste is not complicated
    C has been kept for so long and it can still be so strong, and the wine body does not disperse. It is 90 strong, and 1 more point is given to the wine body of the old wine 91

    The one I tasted appeared to be a sherried batch. Great combination of old style sherry, smoke, salt and maritime freshness.

    Always a pleasure to taste an old (young) Springbank.
    • Nose
      There is a lot of grapefruit, lemon and gooseberry at first followed by wafer, a little putty and wet stones.
    • Taste
       Powerful for 43% , raw is the word I would use, spirit, young basically.

      There is something similar to a lemon cough drop but much less menthol.

      Some icing sugar sweetness comes through along with a little syrup
    • Finish
      Not too long but remaining pleasantly sweet.
