  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    He is delicious, you do not notice the blend, he still has youthful strength, but good taste for the age, with 90-100 € fair prizes.
    • Nose
      intense, grainy sweetness, light tingle (salty-sour freshness), biscuits with lemon icing, some orange / peach jam
    • Taste
      pretty intense, lasting pinch of salt & pepper on the tongue, with plenty of wood influence - forest honey, cocoa, nutella, blackberry jam ....
    • Finish
      long and peppery, from sip to sip more bittersweet chocolate

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Dusty initially, it is warm at the opening. Salted butter caramel, dried apricots, cereals. Scented and very round. On the palate, super melted and mellow with the first sip, it is buttered and creamy with sweet spices. Quite corpulent for a blend. Finale rather fleshy for a blend.

    Enthusiasm
    Nose 4/5
    Mouth & Finale 3/5

  5. Bam scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Great filling, beautifully fruity, and set at the same time with a great oak note.
    • Nose
      Malt and straw. Looks dusty and musty, old bookshelf. Peach and pineapple. A trace of smoke.
    • Taste
      Medium onset, silky mouthfeel. Comes sweet and fruity on the tongue, peach, pineapple and candied lemon. Caramel and vanilla ice cream. Then the oak comes with beautiful cocoa flavors, milk chocolate, nougat.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Remains fruity for a long time, pineapple peach and lemon. Some milk chocolate.

  7. peatbogger scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Tasted at Tunsberg Whisky Festival 2019.
    Fairly priced for a 21YO
    Don't expect a pure Springbank. It's a blend, and as such it is a quite good one.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Earthy, vegetal green. Rubarb sprouts.
      Sweet cereals with a pinch of salt.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Oily and relatively sweet arrival.
      Again that fresh slighty sour rubarb.
      Enough spice to give a pleasant warmth, and here as well; a pinch of salt.
      Not the typical Campbeltown, but the difference doesn't make it a bad whisky.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium lenght.
      Moving from spicy sweet to bitter dry.

  8. Totoro scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Good value at around 80 €.

    Some sulphur (firecrackers), brine and faint smoke on the nose, along with zesty, acidic fruit. Also something oily.

    In keeping with the Springbank style, the palate presents as tart, astringent, lemony and salty with soft smoke. This has quite some kick to it at 46% and does not seem much mellowed by age. The grain content is indiscernible to me, apart from a vague softness perhaps.

    The finish could be longer, but it's nice, with maritime peat, saltwater and a dash of lime.

  9. dramspotter scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    This was sampled from a low remaining quantity in a bar so it could have been up on the shelf for years, so might not be representative of the whisky overall, but if it were, it is not a great advertisement for Campbeltown!
    • Nose
      quite hard to get a reading, very reticent; sharp a bit grassy, then grass seems to morph into apple
    • Taste
      bit like the alcohol on a hand wipe, yes something akin to a Girvan in there, but what peat there is is pretty subtle. Lemon scented handwipe is a little unkind - more like grassy handwipe or a hand lotion (but not the oily kind)
    • Finish
      short->medium; more short than anything - a little sickly but it dissipates pretty quickly
