  1. The Macallan scored this whisky 66 points Connoisseur

    A very odd Springbank, you gotta love it or you gotta dislike it, it was a slight dissapointment for me.
    • Nose
      Briny, malty, light smokey(burnt grass) and some bourbon vanilla.
    • Taste
      Soft and very salty, light woody notes with some citrus fruit - kumquat.
    • Finish
      Long, salty and peppery.

    Opened a couple of minutes ago. I will send my Mafioso friends to all the folks in here that rate this nectar low. Take your time to say bye to your family. Semplicemente buonissimo.

    Some old books in the nose and on the palate it has some vanilla notes. It's actually pretty creamy but rather flat on the palate.

  9. Feusi scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Eating an orange on the beach. Ripe oranges with some smoke and salty marine notes come into the nose. While drinking the salty notes are very dominant, but also sweet malt, honey and citrus fruits are visible. A long and sharp peppery finish, remain woody notes and spices. Is now not really the best Springbank I`ve ever drinked.

  10. alectron did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Also:
    C.V. = Chairman`s Vatting.
    In Springbank`s case, both (Curriculum Vitae and Chairman`s Vatting) have been used by different people from the distillery to explain what their C.V on bottlings actually stands for, so even for them it is not clear what it means if it is on a bottle in abbreviated form... gotta love Springbank for being odd ;)
