    I like it, the sweetness works for me, quite vibrant and fresh which adds to the profile.
    • Nose
      Like St Pauli I also get the grassy nose but also some cleaning fluid and it reminds of some White Horse blends I have had.

      Now then, I also detect some similarities with the kilkerran 12, a little white wine with fresh pineapple and icing sugar
    • Taste
      Very sweet, with pineapple again, buttercream, vanilla ice cream (not massive vanilla), pear cider, sherbet fizz and its gets creamy after a little time in the glass
    • Finish
      Reasonable length, getting sweeter with time.

  4. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Despite the young age and a possible refill-maturation, is this whisky well balanced. It has the same character from nose to finish, and it's pleasant to nose and drink. It's not the most complex dram, but good for an evening of fun. What strikes me, is that I didn't detect any peat in this whisky.
    All in all, a surprisingly different Springbank!
    • Nose
      The first impression is that this dram tastes surprisingly young, and a little spirity. Yet, it is full of fresh summer fruit, of which pear is most prominent. Further, it has a rather grassy nose. This, and the colour, make me think this was matured in a refill cask. After a while, the fruit is accompanied by lemon sherbet. Further, vanilla and biscuit emerge. If you breathe in more deeply, you'll notice some sea spray, and waxy barley.
      To conclude: this is a nice nose, but no trace of peat and dirt.  
    • Taste
      Fresh and fruity, with plenty of sweet associated notes, some herbs, and quite some cream. Melon, pear, lemon sherbet, honeyed cereals with vanilla yogurt. Then: grass, mint, but also some pepper (not disturbing however).
    • Finish
      The fruitiness changes to a bitter variant, with lemon juice and lemon zest. Next to that, this dram is remarkably herbal and full of pepper. Cut grass, hay, vanilla, and again pepper.

    Dangerously drinkable Springbank with a rough coastal edge. Courtesy by Mark de Wijs who bought this cask with his friend Hans Dieteren from the distillery in a time (1997) when this still was possible. Good cask selection lads!
    • Nose
      Typical Springbank nose for me with minerals and wet stones. Herbal notes and a touch of eucalyptus. Some hay. Mustardy. A little briny as well.
    • Taste
      Oily. Full mouth texture. Lots of citrus fruit. Lemon and lime. Orange peel. Zesty. Ginger. 
    • Finish
      Medium long. Slightly tangy. Black pepper. Liquorice. Quite salty at the end.
