  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.

    Ralfy's 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."

    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.

  10. 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.
