Color
Amber
Nose

Ein ganzes Gerstenfeld schwappt mir ins Gesicht, malzig süß, Bienenhonig, leichter Rauch, die Springbank-Salzigkeit drückt sich vorbei, süße Kekse, Orangensaft 

Taste

Malzige und cremige Süße, wieder leichter Rauch und der Alkohol drückt zusammen mit der Salzigkeit, Orangen

Finish

Kräftiger Springbank-typischer Abgang, etwas Eiche, das süße Malz regiert auch hier

Comments

"Der Local Barley 11 auf Crack" Ja das trifft es. 

Sehr toller Springbank.

spigray gave this whisky 91 points

forget the price rating, meanwhile far too expensive
forget the presentation rating as we all know that springbank´s marketing is wonderfully unprofessional and the labels are a pure horror.
I just do not want to spoil the averige rating as I´m not that much interested in labels although I can enjoy a good one.

Color
Gin clear
Nose

you can tell from the first nosing that this is very good (as always). nice fruity aromas on gooseberries, lemon curd and orange peel combined with obvious but still rather gentle smoke and the obligatory ashes. no soot this time.
it is less dirty than many other expressions.
after a while I got whiffs of something sour/tropical.

Taste

with water: well, it´s springbank! what did I expect?
I´m afraid  I repeat myself in my reviews of springbank.
But I can say that this is a rather clean and more distinguished expression, less dirty and really nicely fruity with some malty aspects in the background, some barley notes.
a noticeable difference to sherry or "mixed" maturation.

Finish

long, very clean

Comments

again a very good expression of springbank, the bourbon cask worked fine on this whisky.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Wow, this is complex! Sea breeze, wet stones, heavy coastal notes, then some pepper, white sugar, lemon juice, developing into gooseberry, peach, honey, a slightly tropical side on mango and papaya, and a hint of smoke.

Taste

Quite a heavy spice attack with pepper and chilli. Layers of sweetness underneath with mango, papaya and passion fruit dominating, also lemons and some salt. Peat smoke is there too.

Finish

Long, powerful, the fruity sweetness slowly subsides to the burning chilli and pepper.

Comments

A rather usual Springbank profile, but as nearly always, a great whisky. It's just too easy to be spoiled by this distillery.
