  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    What a fat sherry board for the wing chair - very complex and yet a jump bench
    • Nose
      Sherry, sherry, sherry - raisins, leather, musty wardrobe, sour cherry compote, dark currant juice, dried plum, bark munch, herbs like a bittersweet, do I even hear a bit of smoke? - in spite of the sherry wall, the typical Springbank flavors are recognizable, salty and maritime, especially one drop of water highlights the distillate notes
    • Taste
      Sherry, hints of cough syrup, maritime, sweet balsamic vinegar, plum jam
    • Finish
      Sweet, dry, long clear bitter wood

    So the second half of my sample has promised me more now. However, I'm not and will not be such a big fan of such whiskys. I'm missing the tension somehow. Brennereicharakter or similar looking for such comrades, of course, in vain, as the sherry powerful ironing about it. Everything goes very clear in one direction, which is too one-dimensional to me. After all, the sherry here was well integrated by age. For younger sherry bombs is the most for me also put on.
    So it was interesting, but that's almost the direction of the sprinkled sherry. I do not need a big bottle of such specimens.
    • Nose
      Phew! It takes a few minutes. At first some glue. After a few minutes. Menthol. Cassis vinegar. Josta. Again some rum notes. Black Forest cake. Black tea. Dry red wine. Blood orange.
      With water it gets sweeter, as so often with me.
    • Taste
      He goes well undiluted. Just a reminder of lovely red wine or punch. Dates and figs. Then it gets sour and goes towards blackberry, red and blackcurrant. Now the barrel is noticeable. Pomegranate. Cocoa.
      Also sweeter with water. However strangely then also bitter.
    • Finish
      Grapefruit. Zartbitterschokolade. Tobacco. Chinarinde.

    • Nose
      Liquid dark chocolate, dark cherries, freshly painted hunter's fence. Pine needles, damp forest floor. Blood oranges, some eucalyptus, worn leather.
    • Taste
      Heavy, oily. Cherry jam on a dark farmer's bread. Dark dried fruits, oranges, peppers. Old wood, sweet tobacco, gorgonzola, plasticine. Long, slightly furry and musty.

    So I liked it very much, only the departure with the no longer existing sweetness did not personally promise me that way. Still, I would give him 90 points. For further information on the whisky came to me as the first Arran in the head. So second, then somehow the Speyside, where I definitely exclude Glenfarclas here. Nevertheless, it was very difficult to recognize a typical Brennereicharakter here. Furthermore, he must have at least 15 years under his belt, where I said something between 12 and 18 years, clear tendency to an older vintage. Again, it was difficult due to the dominating Sherryanteils, as it was unclear how strong the barrel still acts. Then he can be well over 20, but if there was a lot of sherry in the barrel then it was less. And in percentages I then set myself to something with 50% +. (Sampe was tasted blind).
    • Nose
      Pleasantly tingling. The color is confirmed. Dark cherry notes with a pleasantly sweet strawberry note. Great combination I have to say. After the second smelling, a plum note is added. In addition, distinct coffee notes and dark chocolate with a good 80% cocoa content. Very round and pleasing and you definitely want more. There are also shades of oak.
    • Taste
      The initial tingling continues on the tongue. The entire oral cavity is occupied. The coffee notes increase significantly, but the sweetness can assert itself. In addition, the cherry notes become clearer. From the strawberry or plum is nothing to feel.
    • Finish
      Medium long and intense. Roasting aromas are spreading. Even after a few minutes they are still on the tongue. The sweetness is completely gone and the dark chocolate with almost 100% cocoa content is there.

    a great dram with a good level of complexity and an incredible nice sherry cask. Unfortunately no hint about Springbank as it could be any distillery. But who cares? The dram is great.. 
    • Nose
      great dark sherry nose with chocolate and dark berries, plums and juicy oranges. Alcohol is well implemented 
    • Taste
      juicy oranges are very present and also honey sweetness shows up. 
    • Finish
      nice espresso finish
