  1. spigray scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    n: typical campbeltown smokiness with soot and ashes, also briny notes as usual.
        various oils like linseed oil and sunflower oil and smells of garages and farmyard.
        raw wool, cotton mill.
    t:  oily mouthfeel with good oomph and a sweet-sour arrival.
        the fruitiness is stronger than on the nose but you can find all components
        of the nose together with  some chalky notes.
    f:  long, dry with an idea of walnut and a little musty
    comments: not an easy whisky, a little austere but very unique and very good.

    92/100

    2014 edition:

    The peat is nearly gone (which is about the only gripe I have with it, if I really wanted to search for one), but everything else is superb! This really is proper, old-style, no frills (mostly?) ex-sherry matured whisky, made by hand in a working museum, filled into great wood and carefully looked after. A very sexy dram in a Marilyn Monroe class kinda way.

    92/100

  3. Malthead19 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    - a particularly good single malt
    - very special: strong, angular, idiosyncratic but of very good quality
    • Nose
      ripe dark fruits, distinct oak, leather, dry sherry
    • Taste
      first soft then strong start, oak, very light smoke, cocoa, dry sherry, lots of spice, Christmas spices, sticks to the palate when swallowed, stimulates saliva
    • Finish
      medium-long fruity finish;
      long dry aftertaste

  4. Bosi scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    As already mentioned, this filling is very complex and has rough edges, classic Springbank. Nevertheless, everything seems very balanced and never tried. That's how you create great whiskys.
    • Nose
      The nose starts in a classic way, and is nice and musty. The smoke goes in the direction of burnt match. Add fresh citrus notes, wax and a hint of ragout or garam masala. Wonderfully complex!
    • Taste
      The smoke is beautifully integrated and plays milk chocolate, mint and orange notes. With a little time, the barrel becomes more noticeable: some oak, slightly dry and smoked fish.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long. Cold smoke, tea and some ginger remain.

  5. tangtang scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    beautiful complex and aromatic malt. Very nice interplay of flavors. I like it very much.
    • Nose
      Overripe fruits, essential oils, smoke, notes of sherry, dried fruits, apricots, salty notes, dark berries and a little honey as well as a touch of chocolate in the background
    • Taste
      fruity start accompanied by light smoke notes, here too the sherry notes come, some honey, dark berries, some pepper, sweet and salty at the same time, becoming oily
    • Finish
      smoky and slightly ashy, sweet salty and intense sherry aromas. Very strong and long.
