  1. Pollenflug scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Light fruits such as orange, pear, grapefruit and lemon dominate the first nose. Some honey is added. Vanilla and caramel complete the rather light and fresh-looking aroma.
    • Taste
      Strong, voluminous, sweet and fresh start thanks to the 46 volume percent. Very oily, creamy mouthfeel. In addition to the bright fruit notes from the aroma to crystallize exotic fruits, such as mango and papaya added. The lemon and grapefruit make for a slightly acidic impact. A light honey note and a little milk chocolate make themselves felt. Some spice can also be perceived, which is increasingly powerful, but not too dominant.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet, light fruits continue to dominate and a fine spice passes the dram. Overall, very round and balanced.

  5. PuddingmitHaut did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Yes, that's good. The change from sweet, sour and tart entertains and the 46% suit him well.

    I like (without the direct comparison) the Springbank 10 anyway, because it is a bit dirtier and the smoke fits well there.
    • Nose
      Honey-sweet on the nose, light fruits with citrus notes, slightly grassy and herbaceous, but in the foreground the fruit sweetness with a slightly acidic touch.
    • Taste
      Nice intensity. Fruit and sweetness paired with citrus-fruity acidity, then it turns into the more spicy, springbank-typical, slightly dirty, and ends on a sweetly bitter note

  6. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A really good standard. That's what Springbank is used to. Less "dirty" notes from memory than with Springbank 10. But you can already tell that it comes from the Springbank distillery. In addition honey and fruits, which even have a slope into the tropical. But also oak, which adds flavor to the malt.

  8. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This is a Monster Standard Dram that can seamlessly join the Springbank Range.
    • Nose
      I like the Hazelburn nose. Fruity, clean, slightly wet stone, some Springbank gummy bears, a hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      In the mouth then more of everything, a lot of spice, orangeate, even some smoke, the distillery's origin can not be denied.
    • Finish
      In the finish minimal sulfur. Seasoning, mineral, liquorice, fruit.

    We begin with an ideal looking sighter, one I’ve not had before. The nearest I’ve got to it is a 10yo Rundlets & Kilderkins batch which I loved, but of course, it’s a totally different beast.

    N: A light nose but the quince & blackcurrant jellies are pleasingly present.
    T: A drop of water is highly recommended. Tasty!
    F: An example of excellent composition.
    C: A light barley-led dram that deserves a permanent place on my shelf. Scores 85 points easily.
