  5. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      fresh green apple, caramel, salt, slightly mineral, dried meadow herbs, butter biscuits, smoke only very far away, nutmeg and crushed juniper berries
    • Taste
      oily, creamy, beeswax, salty, lime abrasion, "dirty" Springbank character, warm, moist earth, fresh fruit notes (again apples) and some mint
    • Finish
      very spicy, reminiscent of freshly ground pepper

  6. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A classic Springbank.
    • Nose
      Panettone, raisin, apricot, lilies, nut oil, smoke. Real complexity.
    • Taste
      Fascinating subtle, and ever-changing. Great balance between sooty smoke, olive, dried peels, cashew,custard , brine.
    • Finish
      Spicy, briney, long. Soft and oily.

    N- Drams of two faces. Firstly, musty and mossy, plastic robe, sea shell and decaying smoked fish. Following by lifted citrus and nice brandy notes, dried fruits, gentle and peculiar.

    P- Wood driven, dry and fruity mouthfeel, ashy and shiraz with touch of curious, rather 'global' and not so exciting sweetness.

    F- Medium, soft liquorice, gently spiky and cornflakes cereals. Not quite live up to the exciting nose.

    This one is like the light yellow Springbanks 12yo from the 80s with the black label. Also good for its kind.
    • Nose
      Minerals, flowers, malty, green fruits, green bananas, little grassy
    • Taste
      Very waxy, oily, little lemony, minerals and grassy notes again
    • Finish
      Medium short
