  2. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A very light and airy mole, slightly emasculated by a triple distillation, a middle peasant, but does not cause any negative emotions, rather the reverse.
    • Nose
      Light, airy, mineral, wet rubble, moistened grindstone, lemon zest, lemonade, malt, raw wood, wood shavings, raw cut potatoes.
    • Taste
      Light, woody, peppery, young bark, berry sour, coriander, a little caramel sweets.
    • Finish
      Spicy, soft, pink pepper, malt, light oak bitterness, sorrel, lettuce, kvass notes.

  3. vojt466 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Mořské řasy a tóny celkově. Je to takové krémově uhlazené - vanilka, karamel, nepatrná dubová zatuchlost. Velice lehká nakouřenost, troška kořenitosti
    • Taste
      V chuti výrazně sladké, vanilkové, kakaové, nakouřené, a kořenité. Je cítit sladká guma. Později vystupuje na povrch mastnější kouř jak z ohniště a sůl
    • Finish
      V dozvuku vanilka, trocha sladu, rašeliny, soli a výrazná kořenitost - středně dlouhý 

  4. Torfding scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Initially, the vapors of paint and solvent rise, but fortunately, these disappear after a few minutes; with alcoholic notes and pear schnapps, fruits (especially pears and raspberries), vanilla, fresh and sweet. Over time, the aroma becomes heavier and more exotic, grass, more vanilla, malt and orange spray are noticeable.
    • Taste
      There is a touch of gum, oak and malt, lots of vanilla sweetness, a little young banana
    • Finish
      medium to long, slightly peppery, spicy

  5. cfosterk scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Triple distilled whisky from Springbank distillery. Only one of two distilleries to triple distill regularly. Hard to get but worthwhile.

    46% non-chillfiltered and no added colouring.

    Initially difficult to get past an acetone nose. Left alone for 15 minutes and nose improved immeasurably.

    Barley, vanilla, oak. Then fruits overtake - tropical fruits - mango and papaya, then citrus notes. Sherry in the background. Sweet and sour. Very complex for an eight year old.

    Very drying towards the finish, some brine, all of the above, but sweet and sour.

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Tasting note from the actual 2006 bottling with bottle code 06/244. That one is much better than the average on this default bottle in my opinion, 84/85.
    • Nose
      Papaya, mango, honey, caramel, hazelnut, milk chocolate, peat, vanilla and a little leather.
    • Taste
      Apricot, milk chocolate, peat ash, caramel, mocha, hazelnut and white pepper. Eventually some mojito-style lime.
    • Finish
      Mango, peat smoke, dark chocolate, caramel and mint.
