  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

    There is no Campbeltown feeling and the associated high standard, but water helps a lot.
    • Nose
      Interesting and slowly open one. Caramel, honey, flowers, tea, citruses, vanilla. Mild smoke.
    • Taste
      Freshly grated lemon peel, spicy oak, milk chocolate, earth.
    • Finish
      Medium length, bittersweet.

    Tasted at a Malt Mongers Israel evening

    I was a bit let down by this one. I’ve had it before (about a year ago) and remember quite liking it but this time round I really felt the acetone notes on it which were far too strong and overpowering.

    Closed. Patiently wait for the aroma to open up, drop of water helps.
    Slightly pungent. Floral, toasted malt and thought I get some black tea
    leaf in there.

    Palate:- Mellow,
    soft spices, savoury. Earthy flavor derived from campbeltown peat that
    reminds me of Springbank only highlight of this dram. I find it somehow a
    bit hollow and dull, not quite the usual 'hit you on the teeth'
    campbeltown whisky that I am expecting.

    Finish:- Medium with bitterness and astringent.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    Eye: Amontillado minus. Nose: Soft smoke, gently hot. Malty. Fresh lemon cake. After a few minutes creamy vanilla. Frisian sugar bread, sprinkled with rock sugar and salted butter (roomboter). And an almost Islay woolliness, with a hint of laurel. Mouth: Mouth warming and coating. Very nice. Starchy sweet. Fresh oak. Little briny. Residue: Wet sheep, and a little sulfur.

    Golden amber like a summers night on the barley fields with long legs and oily texture.
    I feel lemon tart on the nose and a hint of nail polish. But it's sweet, so sweet.
    Sweet taste with oranges and peaches. Also licorice and salt.
    The finish is there for a long time. Oak and malt, a dry sensation where my upper lips feel numbish. And there is a bit of an old leather belt there as well.

    Really good but I prefer the regular Springbank 18y.
