Moderator dram-drinker Tasting note
21 Nov 2017 10:53 pm
dram-drinker gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Deep copper
Nose

Fruity, honey, whiffs of leather, a bit of dried or candied fruits, plums

Taste

Oily, creamy, good sweetness, more leather notes, little fruity

Finish

Medium long, warm

Comments

This one appears more convenient as it sweeter than for example the single cask for the Netherlands but I rather it still lower because it is less complex and more leathery - though I rate it higher than the single cask for Germany or Switzerland

art-bett gave this whisky 93 points

Für mich auf dem gleichen Level, wie schon die Abfüllung für Deutschland

für die Hanseatische mit 47,5% .

Wieder ein leckerer Springbank der 21er Single Casks, die 2016 auf den Markt kamen.

Malinois
Expert Junior Malinois Note
16 Apr 2017 8:59 pm
Malinois gave this whisky 91 points

The nose is gentile: papaya, bit yellow fruits and a bit less mineral then usual because of the Oloroso cask. After a longer time (+30min) sometimes a slight hint of ash comes an goes.

In the taste everything in the nose returns and it rolls fluently on the tong which adds some oranges and polished wood. The peat is less.
The finish is long peaty and a bit more 'heavy' then the taste.
Really love it! Goes a point up since this was the 4th time i tasted it!

sagara-kun
Expert Senior sagara-kun Tasting note
08 Jan 2017 1:34 am
sagara-kun gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Deep copper
Nose
Nez tourbé, citronné, austère et salé.
Pas de doute on est sur un Springbank.

La tourbe est légère et enveloppe bien les autres arômes.
Un côté assez Riesling, calcaire et minéral.
Au citron confit s'ajoute des fruits blancs (pomme et poire)

Une fraîcheur avec de l'eucalyptus et une pointe de poivre. Un peu de tabac et de feuille de thé noir.
Je n'aurais pas parié sur un sherry au nez.
Taste
Puissante et huileuse.
Toujours un côté austère et minéral de présent, avec de la craie et du cailloux.
Le citron est toujours la avec quelques autres fruits comme de la cerise ou de la groseille.
Des notes de caramel et de poivre.
Finish
Douce et longue, sur la poire et le thé. Beaucoup de cire.
Comments
Je n'ai pas trop trouvé le côté sherry.
C'est très bon, bien qu'assez classique.
Assez loin des anciens 21 ans.
