    A wonderful malt.
    • Nose

      And again a great nose. A whole basket of fruit and fruit salad jumps on me.
      Pineapple, lychee, mandarin ......
      The whole but sprinkled with mineral lime. Slightly biting due to the mineral. That will probably be the smoke. Otherwise no alcohol, nothing hot, nothing bitter.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Here comes the smoke, first. Interwoven with the mineral. Then the mouth is filled with this fruit basket. Full-bodied, sweet, fresh.
      Minimal solvent ?! Or is that just me? I often at ex BC.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Not too long. Marked by fruit and white pepper. The smoke lingers and extends the finish.
      Ex-Bourbon well matured I like from time to time.

    What a great spring bank. This nose ... and the rest can be fantastic.
    • Nose
      A potpourri of tropical fruits, that does not stop: mango, guava, passion fruit, papaya, kiwi, dragonfruit ... unbelievably fruity, not overly sweet or sugared, because the mineral, which can be found in many Springbanks, flashes through and prevents the fruit from going through the sweet blanket. Freshly mown grass, cut flowers, honey.
    • Taste
      Also on the tongue, the tropical fruits are spreading. Here they mix quickly with pleasant oak, coffee beans and milk chocolate. Passion fruit and mango stand out. Over time, sweet honey lays on the tongue, but in the background mild herbs have already thrown into their dress uniform and push forward. Lots of chocolate, tobacco notes, old leather, over and over again the oak that comes through.
    • Finish
      Long, tropical-fruity and now mildly spicy, only slightly dry. The mineral, the sucked pebble, comes out the back.

    Eine so fantastische Fruchtnase hatte ich bisher noch bei keinem Springbank.

    Blind tasted and I did not even wonder that this is a spring bank. Thanks Winni.
    Oh yes: HAMMER MALT
    • Nose
      First comes to meet a whole fruit salad, but quickly flies, then it becomes a sweet lime, a grassy note is added, in between a sweet honey melon flashes through, with time, the nose is always mineral and perfumed
    • Taste
      Very dry onset with lots of yellow fruit, very mineral and salty, orange peel, sweeter with time
    • Finish
      The fruits dominate and the oak spiciness plays around the whole, mineral-rich remains the finish beautiful long and powerful
