  1. p4blo scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful, old fashioned Springbank with a perfect balance.
    • Nose
      Very "green", on grass, leaves, hay, notes of stable. There is a fruity edge to it too with lemons and grapefruit zest, and the usual coastal note with sea breeze and sea weed. No trace of the signatory Springbank smoke.
    • Taste
      Quite sour. Packed with citrus fruits, unripe apples, hay. Very nicely balanced. Grass, leaves, pepper and weak green tea.
    • Finish
      Long, on green tea, a whiff of sea breeze and a pinch of salt.

  2. Slick scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Not exactly what i expected, somewhat a bit "stiff" on the palate, but make sure to add a few drops of water into your glass... will make it much more soft.
