- A good Springbank, but far from being one of the best, in my opinion. Far from being unforgettable. Enthusiasm 3/5 Whisky n ° 1340
Peaty and intense, it is very fruity and vinous (it evokes the yellow wine). Flaked almonds and a hint of sulfur. With a little water, it looks more ashy. Is it a mushroom note ??
On soot, it is very warm. Alcohol is very well integrated. Juicy heart. With water, it is more supple, but less intense (Thank you Mister Obvious)
A little bourrine, and quite short. With water, much longer, smoke, spicy and a little austere.
Polish and sharp wood, nose heating. Sweet fig whirl around rooty
gingseng with a pinch of salt. Splash of water to unleash the softer
notes of coffee, caramel and citrus peels. P- Thick, mouth coating and heavy initially. Once palate accustomed to
the weight of the liquid, find the softer notes of spices, liquorice and
F- Medium-long finish. Concentrated and flavoursome. Complex.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
Cherry, caramel, sweet & sour sauce, orange, dried apricot, tobacco and a little peat. With water some mango.
Sweet & sour sauce, peat, candied cherry, caramel, mango, tobacco and pepper. Water makes some apricot come up.

- A little disgusting .. Like the best treats.
Cherry, plum, grapefruit, dried apricot, vanilla, honey, peat. A very sweet nose.
Candied fruit, dried fruit, citrus fruit, speculoos, sherry, syrupy.
Long, on the fruits.
Very fresh, spring. Fruit of the penis, grass, citrus fruits, ginger. The alcohol tingles a little anyway. The water calm this fault. Alcohol is then much less present but it is also much less expressive although always fresh.
Huge bitterness. Green wood, sawdust, apricot kernel. Can be a bit of tobacco, to cook but there is mostly pepper and ginger. With water, surprisingly the bitterness is in withdrawal, but it is also a little off. Fishing very present all the same.
Average length. Bitterness and fruits
