  1. Dram Dracula did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Got this bottle at the auction and don't regret it one bit. 
    • Nose
      Sweet, funky, maritime, sourish peat -- yup, it's that very recognizable modern Springbank smell. Yellow fruits, such as pineapple, orange, and banana (pudding). Creme brulee.
    • Taste
      Modern springbank all the way. Peppery. A good oiliness. There's a good interplay between the refill sherry and the springbank funk, with both proudly on display. With water added though, the funk wins convincingly. The fruits are there, for sure, but they are a bit hidden. Precise and emphatic, with good balance. A winner all the way.
    • Finish
      Moderate length, very maritime, with a good funkiness. A cross between a very good Talisker and Springbank, which I guess isn't the worst thing in the world.

  2. Dram Dracula did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A nice example of modern Springbank. Oily, funky, maritime, and citrusy. There's also a bit of rum-like sweetness from the refilled sherry cask.
