  1. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nice to drink. But I'm too young. The spirit is still very clear.
    • Nose
      Fruity sweetness of ripe pears, honey and flower meadow. Caramel behind, some sherry. Also a hint of carnation and oak. Atrocious teen race spritliness.
    • Taste
      Sweet again, floral, honey-fruity. Then again the roar of the young spirit. Some oak, some sherry and coffee.
    • Finish
      Oranges, some coffee, Spirit.

    Like the Passion, the Springs is a rock-solid single malt made by Glenfarclas. No Sherry Monster with complex flavors, but a delicious all-day dram. In my opinion, a great PLV! My notes from Springs coincide with my notes from the Passion.

    The only criticism is the missing age (NAS) and the sparse information about this bottling.
    • Nose
      Strong and amber, the Glenfarclas shines in the glass. Oily and heavy, the drops run back into the glass when panning. Fine and fruity sherry rises from the glass. It is followed by a pleasant sweetness and honey, gradually adding slightly pungent alcohol. At the end a touch of oak.
    • Taste
      The mouth fills with the first sip of fruity, slightly sweet oak. Sherry mixes with the wooden aroma. Complex and powerful, the Springs exudes a plump warmth in the mouth.
    • Finish
      The long finish unfolds again these mighty wood flavors. Fruity sherry stays in the mouth long and warm. A great and powerful finish.

    I have tasted the trilogy together with this one being the second one.
    Not outstanding, but not bad either, especially for the price.
    All of them are pretty similar and Glenfarclas is adamant about them
    being three different whiskies. Well, yes, that is most likely the case,
    they just happen to be very similar.
    Passion (83p) > Springs (82p) > Team (80p)
    • Nose
      Stewed fruits, apples, raisins, all of your basic, (refill) sherry Glenfarclas style really
    • Taste
      Less intense than Passion, sweeter, same basic characteristics of oakyness, chocolate, coffe
    • Finish
      Medium length, shorter and less oak than Passion
