  1. MichRich scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Ahh, another 'political cask' (society bottling) that probably explains a lot of the interestingly divisive points...Hmm, not a sherry bomb (well, look at the colour) but a classic Springbank that is full of goodness for sure. Not a hint of sulphur, thank God. Plenty of smoke with maritime notes, then all the sherry goodies, the dark fruits, jam, apricot burst out..oak comes out in the end, along with Springbanky notes of smoked coconut husk etc. A long finish that lingers with fruit and oak. Easily recognizable, distillery character is obvious (coconut husk is there too). A delicious and complex sherried Springbank, with tons of fruit mixed in with the Campbeltown peat and character. It's a winner, beat easily the 21yo Springbank I had with it, as well as the 12yo CS also tried same time. Got one, got more. Thanks friend for recommending this!

  3. Thermidor scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A very underwhelming whisky for €200. The 2016 12yo CS release which I tried right after this one beat it by a mile. For an 18yo single cask the body is too light and the finish unsatisfying.
