Scored the presentation high, cause I am not really interested in labels and did not want to spoil the average score. of course the label is horrible. but they have always been horrible, so consistency everywhere:-)

Nose

I have been looking forward to this new version as serge marked it very high. finally in the european stores now. high expectations!
at first nosing cannot smell a difference to the old version, which is no bad news as a found the old tenner absolutely good. but aren´t we always looking for new experiences?
so we have a sooty, slightly peaty and earthy profile, slightly alcoholic. also some eucalyptus and a very fresh but faint fruitiness in the background. I´d wish it came a bit in front to make a counterpoint to the slightly austere profile. and indeed, after a few minutes just that happens. the fruitiness is hard to pin down, peaches I´d say and oolong tea.

Taste

did you notice that the nose didn´t quite convince me? (only because I am totally petted by the mitchells)
now the palate is perfect in my opinion. fresh and mouthwatering on apples, reineclaudes and peaches. mineral and laser-like, chiselled like good white wine. still quite sooty and the peat is more prominent.

Finish

not too long but fresh and super clean which is a miracle after a dirty bitch like that

Comments

yes, very good but the old version was quite as good, so don´t expect wonders.
91/100

Magnifiquement ciselé, coeur fruité, Super !

Taste

Attaque épicée superbe. Douceur immédiate derrière. Quelle finesse et quelle texture pour un 10 ans réduit ! Fruits cuits, compotés. Des baies.

Finish

Finale toute en douceur, subtile, complètement fidèle à l'esprit Springbank.

Comments

Superbe !

Nice nose that combines slightly sweet notes of toffee, peach, sweet/sour notes of candy, and earthy notes of putty, and forest soil.

Tingling, slightly oily, grassy, earthy, slightly bitter. Toffee, nuts, tobacco, grass.

A bit short, on grass, tobacco and marzipan.

Great entry level whisky!
