Color
Pale gold
Nose

It takes some minutes to open it. Oily salty peat. Green apple peel and grilled citruses. Farm.

Taste

Powerful. Citruses, banana, white wine, oil. Salt, pepper and peat, then smoke and ash.

Finish

Long, peaty, oaky.

Comments

Very close to the 89 point. Young but well balanced flavors and ratios with a nice dose of peat.

Color
Pale gold
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.

Comments

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 : Mineral notes (wet stone, pencil shavings), plasticine. Lemony and oily. Smoky.

Mouth : 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.


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

Pale gold
Nose

Tourbe minérale évoquant la craie. Citron. Pamplemousse ? De la fraîcheur. Tourbe modérée si typique. Une touche fruitée qui prend de plus en plus d'ampleur : yaourt à la pêche. Du miel. 

Taste

Quel toucher ! Presque laiteux. Des fruits farineux. Enfin je veux dire des fruits en gelée mélangés à du grist ! Intégration parfaite de l'alcool. 
L'ajout d'eau lui donne encore plus de relief et d'intensité.

Finish

Epicée et délicate.

Comments

Superbe !
