  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Parallel tasting with Springbank 12 CS Batch 14, 54.2%. No question, a spring bank. Even a well-made, you can see from the somewhat artificial citrus note in the nose. If you like, you can also pay for the 109, - (issue price). But you do not necessarily, the recurrent 12 CS is at least equivalent.
    • Nose
      You have to give him some time in the glass. After some waiting time, during which part of the slightly stinging alcohol has disappeared, a strong citrus note of non-natural origin (toilet duck) appears. In addition, the nose is mineral, maritime, slightly salted. Honey makes for a more natural sweetness after a while.
    • Taste
      Even when starting on the tongue, the citrus note from the nose can be found again. Here, however, it could also come from a lemon and not from a cleaning agent. Also the maritime touch from the nose comes here again, the Malt acts, despite its 53.1%, fresh, airy, light. The alcohol is very nicely involved. Grated almonds and walnuts are coming, also oak is to be guessed. The malt becomes drier.
    • Finish
      Long and dry, with citrus, almonds and slightly bitter herbs.

    Another substantial craft presentation by Springbank but compared with the 16y LB this one lacks of some age. The alcohol is a bit dominant on the nose but keeps vanishing with time in the glass. A few more years would have made this fellow a bit rounder.Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10
    • Nose
      Green apple, grass, lemon, hints of smoke, hints of salted fudge, minerals, some "farming Springbank" in the back, cookie dough.
    • Taste
      Springbank farming (some cow dung), some smoke, lemon, minerals, salt, honey, some spices.
    • Finish
      Medium. Oak, smoke and Springbank farm.

  3. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Ok for drinking. Overal a bit young and lax complexity and I don't like the dry finish. Purchased sample.
    • Nose
      Citrus, soft briny notes, pepper, some smoke, marshmallows, herbs and some nuts - walnuts.
    • Taste
      Citrus, pepper, briny - salt, some wax, honey and later a fresh fruity note - apple.
    • Finish
      Medium drying with pepper, vanilla and a touch of smoke.

      medium length, sweet and fruity finish; long, sweet aftertaste;

  7. Thermidor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    No detailed notes, but feels more 'clean' than the 12yo CS releases due to lack of sherry. For the relative youngster it is, I like its vivid aromas and oily, heavy body. I'm surprised by how instantly likable this is, and could see myself buying a bottle even though the price is a bit askew when compared to the 12yos.

    Ralfy review 636: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yRszJGmCNs (88/100).

    "It's still just a little fresh, a little bit nippy. It just needs more time in the cask to settle down a little bit. 13 years would probably really suit this."

  10. nhuber scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Amazing complex nose, fruity and sweet, everywhere in the mouth and even more so with some water... In the way to perfection considering the age, has easily beaten older Springbanks in the tasting.
