  1. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Quite pleasant and simple whisky at first, there are few derivatives and they are quite straightforward, it adds a lot in development, shades, depth, a feeling of wholeness and balance of the product appear.
    • Nose
      Discreet, dry, dried planks, wood dust, leather goods, carpentry, lemon peel, sweet candy notes, eucalyptus, camphor, wood glue, window putty, vanilla, creamy shades.
    • Taste
      Dense, rich, pronounced woody notes, leather goods, sweet creamy and caramel shades, vanilla, floral honey tones, candied ginger, in development blooms with mineral tones, but also becomes sweeter, more honey and flowers.
    • Finish
      Light, warming, oak, lemon peel in tea, lemonade notes, vanilla.

  2. vlad78 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Lovely Springbank is my weakness.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Sweet, like burnt sugar, the aromas of melon, apple and pear. A little lime. Frozen apricot jam.
    • Taste
      92 92
      The taste is sweet, fruity: fresh fruit and fruit jam with cookies. Anyone who knows the story about the barrel of jam and the basket of cookies will understand me.
    • Finish
      91 91
      The sweet aftertaste of what I wrote above.

  3. magic_slim scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Springbank at its very best.
    • Nose
      Warming and rather intensive nose with fruity and oaky notes in the dominating role.
      The fruity components remind me of a fresh home-made fruit salad, with apples, oranges, bananas, raisins and lemon juice.
      The oaky components include vanilla, white pepper and young wood.
      Lively and fresh, a very beautiful nose.
    • Taste
      Warming - keeps what the nose has promised: Plenty of fruit salad and vanilla with dark forest honey and pepper. Rich and balanced with a pleasant sweetness, which makes it extremely tasty !
    • Finish
      Medium long with a pleasant sweetness followed by some pepper and a balanced dryness without any false note.
