  1. malthead-sven scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    The souvenir from Springbank's distillery tour is a very nice starter, nothing more and nothing less
    • Nose
      fresh, apples, meringue biscuits, all very light, only later comes some smoke, mirabelle, yellow fruit, vanilla kipper
    • Taste
      Smoke, sweetness and fruit are on the same level, moderately heavy overall
    • Finish
      smoked pears, now also a bit bitter, thyme, medium long

    [May, 2017]  When I am in Campbeltown I always try this annual release for Springbank distillery visitors (as a Springbank society member you get it for free).

    The colour is pale gold and the texture shows many fast legs and some late tears.  The nose is quite vanilla driven with lots of citric fruits (mainly lemon) - a very modern two-dimensional style.  It arrives a little peppery and warming on the palate but with not much coating.  The taste is again somewhat two-simensional only, but the lemons are gone and replaced by firm wooden notes (in addition to the strong vanilla-sweet spike).  The finish is not very long and adds no major new impression.  Water is not needed (it flattens the dram).

    This dram is okay to drink but not very remarkable, but as a free give-away this is absolutely fine...
