30 Notes

hs305 gave this whisky 88 points

[May, 2017]  I had this dram during a Springbank Masterclass tasting at the Campbeltown whisky festival.

The nose is all about bourbon vanilla and sherry-induced aromas with some hints of peat.  If only the one slightly sulphured cask has not slipped through the quality control I would have scored it 89 or even 90 points.  The mouthfeel is nicely coating with no hot nor peppery moments, excellent!  The taste is on sweet sherry and vanilla-driven toffee flavours with not that much peat as one would expect.  The finish is medium to long and even sweeter on delicious chocolatey flavours.  Be cautious with water as it releases significantly more sulphury flavours both in the nose and on the palate - so if you are sensitive to the smell of hell (like me) enjoy it neat!

A good dram that is very quaffable...

Nose

very curious about this one cause compared to older version this one is rated very high. I have always been a great fan of this bottle, so let´s see:

everything´s still there. old coins, shoepolish, rancid butter, ash, smoke, damp earth. so no  real change and who would complain?

maybe it´s a tad fruitier this year, I found a handful of lemons and apples. hints of solvent, quite some mild oak

Taste

now, on the palate I´d say there is a change, cause this one is more quaffable, it doesn´t have this austerity we are used from longrow 18. still it is brilliant, as I mentioned a bit fruitier but the distillery character is displaced clearly. the oak comes through with wonderful chestnut flavours.

Finish

long and clean.

Comments

thought I probably couldsave some money this year, but I should have known, that I´ have to buy a bottle.

thanks pollenflug for the sample

Nose

Die erste Nase beginnt sehr vielversprechend: Süß, fruchtig, rauchig und maritim. Helle Früchte, wie Äpfel, Birnen und Orangen, übernehmen schnell die aromatische Oberhand. Auch exotische Früchte, wie Maracuja und Ananas, nehme ich nach einigen Minuten wahr. Im Hintergrund befinden sich angenehme Noten von Vanille/Karamell, roten Früchten (Himbeeren, Erdbeeren) und zarte Eiche. Der sehr harmonisch eingebundene Rauch und die deutlichen maritimen Noten (Salz) sind stets präsent.

Taste

Angenehmer Antritt, die seidige, sehr ölige Textur umhüllt den Gaumen und den Mundraum. Zu Beginn mit einem ganz leichten Prickeln an der Zungenspitze, süße (primär helle) Früchte, Salz und Rauch sind auch hier wieder meine ersten Eindrücke. Orangen, Grapefruit, Maracuja, rote Früchte und Karamell fluten den Gaumen, dicht gefolgt von einer spürbaren Salzigkeit, Schokolade, Nüssen, leichter Eichenwürze und eher dezentem Rauch. Sehr komplex und wunderbar ausbalanciert.

Finish

Lang. Die hellen und roten Früchte verblassen allmählich, salzige Zartbitterschokolade, Rauch und würzige Eichenholznoten gewinnen spürbar an Dominanz. Geschmacklich kommen die Aromen der Refill-Sherryfässer im Abgang bisher am stärksten zur Entfaltung, auch wenn sie eher im Hintergrund verweilen. Ganz zum Schluss minimal trockener werdend.

Nose

Fruchtig, Stachelbeere, gelbe Pflaumen, Marille, grüner Apfel, salzig-maritim, er wirkt kräftig, voluminös und auch ein bisschen gesetzt, Kellerraum, Lösungsmittel, Vanille, Rauch kann ich hier nicht wahrnehmen, für mich ist das ein Aroma von gut getrocknetem Buchenholz

Erst das geleerte Glas liefert die beschriebene Rauchnote in Form von geräuchertem Fisch und Speck 

Taste

Mild und ölig, eine zarte Pfeffernote die sich im gesamten Mundraum verbreitet und den Gaumen betäubt, salzig-maritim, Räucheraroma, Süße von hellen Früchten gefolgt von fruchtigen Bitternoten wie von einem Fruchtbonbon, getrocknete Früchte, zarte Eiche, helle Nüsse, Kaffee 

Finish

Mittellang

Comments

Ein gut gereifter und gut ausbalancierter Whisky aus zweifelsohne hochwertigen Fässern der mir gut gefällt. Ich mag diese grundsoliden Whiskys bei denen eine handwerkliche Handschrift erkennbar ist, so stelle ich mir oldschool vor - 09.05.2018
