  8. p4blo scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Compared side by side with 4 other Springbanks, I find it very different from the sherry cask Archives bottling. This one is more complex and more interesting.
    • Nose
      Heavy notes of varnish, paint thinner and sulphur at first, then it becomes more flowery and fruity with apricots, bubblegum, slightly herbal cough syrup and soy sauce. Quite an unusual profile, not a regular sherry bomb.
    • Taste
      Sweet sherry, chocolate, toffee, caramel, more bubblegum, berries, plums and gentle smoke. Nicely rounded and balanced, a rather classical flavour profile, despite the unusual nose.
    • Finish
      Long and powerful notes of smoke and blackcurrant. Very nice.

  9. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Although there is not much left of the distillery character this is quite an interesting dram. It has been matured in quite an active sherry cask but it surprises you with fresh berries at the start. This dram needs quite some time in the glass (and warmth) to really open up and release the more dark flavours and aromas. I wouldn’t have guessed this was a Springbank. 
    • Nose
      A fresh, fruity and sweet whisky with aromas of ripe summer fruits (red apple, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, melon, white grapes), tea, floral tones (camomile), subtle coffee, winegums, solvent tones, heather honey, licorice root, dried fruits (figs, plums, sultanas), blood oranges, nuts, apricots, boiled candy, cake, caramel, vanilla, allspice, sweet cloves, candied ginger, white wine, earthy tones, lemon peel, subtle sulphur, faith hint of smoke, brown sugar and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      A spicy, powerful and full whisky with aromas of pepper, chili pepper, ginger, honey, allspice, maple syrup, red apple, pear, pineapple, mango, cardboard, tannins, fennel, acetone, sea salt, licorice root, lemon zest, caramel, tangerines, bitter orange marmalade, bitter tones (almost tonic like), coffee, subtle bitter chocolate, mocha, fudge, dried fruits (figs, plums, sultanas, blueberries), sulphur, mineral tones (chalk), grains and spicy oak.
    • Finish
      A medium long, bitter and dry finish with aromas of tannins, hay, grass, cardboard, dried fruits, subtle smokiness, cocoa, toffee, cherries and spicy oak.
