  1. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A very strange whisky, seemingly unbalanced enough, but at the same time whole, the palette of derivatives is quite eclectic, but the general dominant is oak and mineral-industrial notes, in development it throws in different directions, either fruit and berry caramel sweetness, or minerality , then blotter and plastic.
    • Nose
      Open, damp, sharp mineral notes attack immediately, wet tin, mineral water with orange juice, whetstone, oiled tools, steel shavings in oil and dust, stone chips, chlorine, bleach, spicy woody tones, lemon peel, industrial textiles, dried grapes, tropical fruits.
    • Taste
      Powerful, intense, tart woody notes, caramel-berry sweetness, strong pepper wave, bitterness of bark, Dream sweets, light perfumery tones, mineral-industrial motifs from the fragrance, but here they act as a background, a little wet cardboard and plastic.
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, there is mainly oak in all its variety, a little ginger, camphor and mint.

  2. Gotan scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Very fruity and fresh nose, rather spicy and spicy palate. A little intrusive alcohol. Slightly bitter finish.

  7. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Starts remarkably salty and fresh. Gradually, coconut, apple, citrus zests, a waxy sweetness, oatmeal, some oak and mineral accents (lime) follow. Over time, some metallic, wet stones and floral hints of rainy hay. Later also a hint of peat.
    • Taste
      Strong energetic approach that gradually turns into a waxy-fruity sweetness. Acid apples, citrus zests, earthy aromas, again a hint of peat, oak, cinnamon and a metallic dryness. Also some smoke.
    • Finish
      Full, waxy sweetness, floral notes, pithy spices and a hint of smoke. It becomes very earthy over time.

  8. vredensever scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is dense, a bit spirituous: diesel oil, varnish, minerality (iodine, salt, stones), sea (algae), apple peel, wet grain, malt, bread. The taste is sharp, pungent: pepper, butter, bread notes, malt, a little peat and iodine, oak, sweetness with bitter taste in the finale. With a drop of water is more sweet. The aftertaste is soft, smooth: slightly astringent oak, a hint of peat. Conclusion . Cool Springbank. Strong, even, solid. You can say "classic." Rating: 89 (n22t22f22b23).

  10. Murxus scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    I´m still searching the famous Springbank dirt but cannot find it here, in fact I found more of it in a Hazelburn 12yo. Despite of this a very fine-fruity nose reminding me a Balblair. I can confirm strong bitter notes in taste, Campari-like. Doesn´t take water very well despite its high abv. A quite atypical Springbank for sure.

  14. Wild Thing scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    The spices remain quite long in the mouth, but on the whole this is not my taste and the aroma does not cut me off the stool. But the alcohol is very well involved.
    • Nose
      Peach and applesauce with vanilla and oatmeal.
    • Taste
      A very strong oak flavor. Ginger and nutmeg with soft smoke and citrus. Slight bitterness of the oak.
    • Finish
      Long with ginger and nutmeg.

      Cereal.  Fresh cut apples.  Beehive honey.  Vanilla.  Dried grasses. Spicy.

      Rich and chewy.  Smoked ham.  Brine.  Hints of apple pie.  Creme brulee.  Spicy oak.
    • Finish
      Long, oaky and a bit vegetal.  Corriander.
