    COLOR: light gold (without dye)

    - an intense bold bottling from Springbank
    - aromatic, intense and simply good
    • Nose
      fruity, exotic, very subtly smoky
    • Taste
      A fully fruity, complex, distinctive onset, astringent, sticks to the cheeks, apricot, Mirabelle plums, yellow fruits, slight spiciness (but pleasant)
    • Finish
      medium-length fruity-strong finish ;
      medium-long fruity aftertaste

  3. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I liked it, but the rum cask influence could have been stronger
    • Nose
      starts thin, sweetness, minimal smoke, mini leather, some workshop, a floral note, toffee+vanilla comes on, grain so crispbread, a cheesy note comes lightly

      from the 1920s: dirty, spicy, cheesy, freshly mown meadow, slightly rubbery, some oil
    • Taste
      soft, round, silky
      Dirty, molasses, oil/workshop, more spicy, slightly oak, some smoke, slightly vanilla
    • Finish
      long
      spicy, tart, oil/workshop, cheesy decreasing, light oak

  7. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Notes from an online blind tasting:

      Sprite, limes, mint, lemon candy, hay, white wine, a little ginger, a meadow of flowers in spring, sparks of smoke, a trace of salt
    • Taste
      Soft start. Some ginger and lemon tea. A bit of grass and again the flowery notes. The second sip comes with a pinch of salt. Apricot jam.
    • Finish
      Long. Spicy - sweet. Creamy with a fine smoke.
