    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.

    Very beautifull dram. Nice noze and body. A bit creamy on the finish. Quite. A good surprise for a 11 YO

  4. Glennie scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Citrus, some peat, mild oak, cereals, fresh tropical fruit, grassy and slightly mineral.

    Taste: Fruits like mango, papaya and sweet oranges. Icing sugar and som vanilla creme. Towards the end some spicyness. Perhaps ginger and/or mild chilli.

    Finish: Some sweet fruitiness with a little spice. Medium length.

    Takes water well. Improves it.

    Nice dram. OK price/value at the original retail price.

    I prefer the 16 years old Local Barley from 2016 but this 11 years old is a solid release once again.

    Tasting not from september 2017.
    • Nose
      Mineral notes (wet stone, pencil shavings), plasticine. Lemony and oily. Smoky.
    • Taste
      Sharp and mineral at first. White wine and a pinch of salt. Afterwards it's slightly creamy with some vanilla and smoke in the background.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, peppery.

    A Springbank for Springbank fans
    • Nose
      Mineral onset with tangy orange peel, maritime, Nimm2 sweets, the mineral Brennereicharakter pushed itself more and more past the citrus notes, towards the end pure freshly squeezed orange juice, lemon scent fresheners, water makes it orangiger and it comes finally a trace of vanilla
    • Taste
      Citrus, mineral, a trace of smoke, the pure Springbank power comes slowly, slightly peppery, with water a bit ashier but also creamier
    • Finish
      Slight bitterness, slightly dry, light smoke and above all a lot of orange peel and typical Springbank character

    A nice whisky for balmy summer nights.
    • Nose
      Apple paired with a bit of lemon and a hint of smoke
    • Taste
      Pleasant on the tongue despite 53.1%. As with nosing, the fresh apples are to taste. The lemon comes a little behind the apples. More smoke than nosing that blends well with the fruits.
    • Finish
      Medium long and very refreshing
