Expert Senior Seb.Whisky Tasting note

Seb.Whisky gave this whisky 87 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Nez : L'influence du fût de sherry est bien présente, apportant fruits mûrs, rondeur. Le tout est bien gras et promet bien du plaisir. Le style fumée et suie de Springbank est ici un peu camouflé, participe à l'ensemble, mais de manière plus discrète. Lentement ce sont citron et gingembre qui apparaissent. Orange tirant sur le marmelade.

Taste

Bouche : Tout à fait à l'avenant du nez, elle présente néanmoins plus d'épices. Ceci dit le fruité qui comprend à la fois des fruits sucrés et acidulés persiste. Le sherry influe bien sur cette bouche, avec du chocolat, des notes de pain grillé, de figue. La suie s'épaissit crescendo. Quelques fruits secs, noisettes.

Finish

Finale : La tourbe lourde est totalement installée et huileuse. Il y a de cette amertume issue des agrumes, de leur peau. De petits rappels acidulés, de jus citron.

Comments

Un Springbank totalement dans les clous, l'influence des fûts se marie merveilleusement bien avec le style lourd et fumé de la maison.

Je dirais que ce whisky est devenu un incontournable.

Nose

Fruitig, sinaasappel, alcohol prominent aanwezig. Citrus, rozijnen, ziltig, wat chocola. Ook wat geroosterd vlees.

Taste

Kruidig, peper. Ook weer fruitig, sinaasappel, wat citrus. Ook ietwat bitter, grapefruit-achtigs.

Finish

Nu komt er wat meer rook door, kruidig/peperig weer, vrij lang. ook nog wat sinaasappel.

HammerHead gave this whisky 89 points

Nose: roasted almonds, salted cashews, eastern serundeng like spices (coriander, ginger, cumin, curcumin), a fruitsyrup like sweetness with lime and oranges, also a tiny amount of sulphur/spent matches (it's more like smoked ham actually).

Taste: nutty, again the broad palet of eastern spices, pepper, oranges, lemon, lime, some grapefruit bitters and a smokey meatiness.

Finish: long - oranges, grapefruit, faint smoke, spices, pepper, ginger and a mild woody bitterness.

A big whisky with big flavours, also a clear improvement over the last time I had the 15 yo Springbank (which already scored 87 points a few years ago).
