  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.

  2. Goethe scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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.

    • Nose
      90 90
      Vanilla oil, warm butter biscuits straight from the oven, sweet milk pudding, touch of warm caramel, summer dried fruits. Later the sea breeze arrives, hints of salty air in the background, iodine. A bit of wet-oak touch, some wet raisins, spicy honey - thus waxy notes. Very very warm dram!
    • Taste
      90 90
      Oak!, grass, malt, toasted barley, some wax on the tongue, sweetness disappear quite fast, to leave dry, woody feeling. Some hazelnuts over the zesty lemon&mineral breathe somewhere in the background. Shortly after followed by marine notes and some iodine. Alcohol - not disturbing at all, nicely hidden under the load of taste.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Woody, waxy, citrusy, a bit spicy - like freshly grinded white pepper. Medium long to long, nicely warming!

  9. sagara-kun scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Pretty simple and very focused on cereals.
    • Nose
      Very cereal nose, barley, Kellogg's, biscuit.
      A base of citrus, lemon, lime.
      A little margarita. Strawberry, butter.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it's a little more lively. Lemon, lemon, lemon. Cereals. Brown sugar.
      Fresh mint, pepper, fresh grass.
      Yeast. Saline.
    • Finish
      Final on citrus fruits, yeast.
