Nose : Tobacco, rubber and sherry spices at first. Smoke, caramel, subtle dark fruits and a pinch of salt.

Mouth : Punchy and dry. Tobacco again, spices (cloves, ginger, ...), dried fruits, dark chocolate and smoke. Dark fruits from the nose try to fight back in the background.

Finish : Long, drying, spicy and smoky.


I know the cask has been recharred but it still gave sherry flavours, on the dry side, and I liked that. Another great Springbank.

couleur ambrée, nez très marqué sherry, d’abord sur le caramel, le tabac, épices de sherry. Bien mieux en bouche, moins marquée caramel, un peu de chocolat, de fruits confits, mais surtout un léger voile de fumée, du sel, du caoutchouc, belle ampleur grâce aux 59% parfaitement intégrés. Très longue finale, sur le caramel, les épices, la fumée et beaucoup de sel.

Oh… wow! Not for the faint of heart and not for those rushing things! Take your time, add a generous amount of water and you’ll be awarded with a multi-faceted, punchy, dense, interwoven dram meandering between spices and dark fruit sweetness. Somewhere between these aspects you can also find the typical Springbank character and a hint of peat smoke!

Score: 91/100

Ich habe es ja nicht so mit Sherry. Aber mal dessen ungeachtet...
Ein wirklich beeindruckender Malt mit enormer Kraft und Tiefe. Er bringt genau das mit, was einen Whisky so faszinierend macht: Frucht, Süße und Würze - plus eine kleine Prise Rauch. Ganz Toll. Das einzig Negative ist, dass er -wenn erstmal abgefüllt- in der Form nie wieder verfügbar sein wird. Wohl dem, der eine Flasche oder einen Dram davon bekommen konnte!

A perfect balance between distillery markers and finish

Impressively coastal despite the wood and finish

Christal Clear Sherried Springbank, sharp and zesty, fruity. Wonderful.

I love Islay
