  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fine peat, vaguely maritime. Lemon pie with peach. At first very precise, it becomes rough with strange bitter scents.
    • Taste
      We find the profile of the initial nose but accommodated with marked spices. The touch and fluid, and the alcoholic integration, very beautiful.
    • Finish
      Driftwood, ash, coffee and chocolate powder, very convincing finally.

      Too bad for this nose, I find the OB overall better!

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 2/5
      Mouth & Finale 4/5

    Cadenhead for a Springbank from Longrow!
    • Nose
      Smoked, salty and peaty sweetness
      fruit on lime
      creamy and waxy sweetness
      wood and sweet caramel in return
    • Taste
      sweet spices !!
      fruits on fresh citrus fruits, then cooked!
      wood with smoke, smoked herbs, it's sweet, very nice, peat comes back but sweet too, there's an air of springbank in with softness, energy, salt
      back of wood, vanilla
    • Finish
      huge departure, stronger mouth still, withdrawal in finish, good, but is quickly lost!
      a very good dram without thinking!

    N: Light creamy peat, a little drier than Ardmore, more soft depth than Kilchoman - waxing lyrical.
    T: Competent.
    F: A waxy mouthfeel.
    C: Good if uneventful.Scores a B-

    Often one notices a high proportion of oak in such light whiskys. Not here. You have to look for bitterness. TOP
    • Nose
      Light sour citrus notes paired with very fine smoke. Once your nose has gotten used to it, it really starts. Pure melon. Juicy sweet pineapple. At the very end, the sea breeze that is typical for Springbank appears in the background and a very slight phenolic smokiness comes through.
    • Taste
      Sweet and salty, a light creaminess and again very fine smoke. Citrus fruits and pineapple come to mind again. Over time, the whole thing is creamier and yellow fruitier. Mango could be that.
    • Finish
      Here, too, dominated the saltiness and the smoke is now for the first time a little clearer. A slight Pfeffrigkeit remains long in the mouth.
