  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sherry is too obvious and completely masks the character of the distillery. Too classic. Lack of balance, even.
    • Taste
      Well spiced. Springbank peat wakes up late. It is too powerful limit for 51.1%!
      With water a little more soft.
    • Finish
      Powerful, dominated by dried fruits.

      A classic sherry, completely forgettable. Bad selection! I who have regained the basic OB lately, it's rude.

      Enthusiasm:
      Nose 2/5
      Mouth and finish 3/5

      Whisky n ° 1950

    A very delicious malt. For my taste, the sweetness covers just about everything in the mouth. Therefore, it seems a bit one-dimensional.
    • Nose
      Rum raisins. Cane sugar. Butterscotch. Shortbread. Herbal and wood spice. Light aniseed. Wet wood and wet hay. The typical Springbank dirtiness is already there, but we are pretty much covered by the barrel. From time to time I think I also have incense.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, relatively superficially sweet. Toffee. Custard with sherry. Molasses. Then the oak flavor and some Springbank character. The mouth is dominated by the sweetness and the subsequent seasoning.
    • Finish
      The sweetness lasts amazingly long. Something Springbank character. Now a little citrus. Go in the direction of blood orange. The spice sounds.
