  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

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

    The colour is deep copper and the texture shows late legs with slow tears.  The nose is very sweet and winey, after some water added it gets more floral.  The mouthfeel is nicely coating with some peppery moments.  The taste is sweet and winey again with spicy and nutty flavours.  The finish is of medium length and spicy with no distracting moments.  This dram is a good swimmer!

    I really like it, a nice dram both easy to drink and interesting to explore at a fair price.  Well done, Springbank society!

    Very nice, it's fun. Varied and unusual, without being too crazy.
    • Nose
      Sweet wine gum, lavender, burned oak chips. That's an interesting mix. The wine gum and the lavender prevail, sweet spices come. Radiergummiabrieb.
    • Taste
      Very strong and wonderfully creamy on the tongue. Liquorice, lots of licorice! Again the lavender. Dark chocolate, tart herbs, acacia honey. Pepper. And still liquorice.
    • Finish
      Medium long and slightly dry, spicy, but no more bitter substances. Only a little lavender oil.

    I think the perfume is not so uncomfortable in this station wagon.
    • Nose
      Raspberries !, to proper bacon, which is an interesting part, now it goes over to grapefruit, the basic note is tart and sweet, some smoke, has something of fir wood, in the background is some milk chocolate, creamy overall, a hint of cinnamon, definitely perfume
    • Taste
      Strong onset, sweet, some wood smoke, creamy, some chocolate, now bittersweet, perfume, violets, a lot of violets, raspberry you can guess below
    • Finish
      supple, sweet, still this perfume-like, raspberry syrup

  4. Noface83 scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    Nose: slightly musty smoke (some cowshed but also greasy), raspberry, floral perfume note, warming spices (but not spicy), light oak, very sweet in the background (sweetened cold fruit tea) Taste: super creamy and yes a lot of liquorice, strong but not alcoholic, huge sweetness (bright fruits and plums) and now aromatic delicious smoke. Remains long on the finish with sweetish smoke and charred oak. The sweetness is very vinous and opulent!

    Ingenious malt with an opulent aroma and a great taste / finish. With a bottle you would make me overjoyed ^^

    That's exactly my direction. This malt combines two of my most beloved directions: Springbank and Sauternes ripening. Great, because the high expectations were absolutely fulfilled. In addition, the typical Sauternes notes are much more recognizable here than in Hazelburn Sauternes.
    • Nose
      Immediately noticeable Sauternes influence, present bright grapes and a beautiful sugar sweetness, but the Springbank character comes through easily, you can feel a slight smoke and the mineral notes, with the time is an easily detectable vanilla sugar on top of it, which binds a strong Water does not change much, it just softens as expected in the nose
    • Taste
      Very sweet, very creamy, thick it lies on the tongue, then a peppery squeeze of smoke past the creaminess, I get the grapefruit in mind, the oak spice is more dominant, but displaces the sweetness and creaminess but not the second sip is even sweeter and creamier, water brings the vanilla in the foreground
    • Finish
      An astonishingly typical Springbank finish, very mineral, while the creamy sweetness is constantly in the picture, a bitterness can be guessed at maximum

    After-tasting after one year. Wow, he got it right again. Exciting malt with an interesting aroma combination.

    • Taste
      86 86
      smooth, creamy, sweet, spicy oak tones (unfortunately a little bit of bitterness noticeable), notes of raisins, must and sweet wine, yellow stone fruit (apricot)
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium length with sweetness and oak flavor

    Nose: Roasted malt, some peat. Wine notes
    Taste: From the first sip a palpable taste with the addition of spices. Of course, peat accompanies the background. Everything is nicely connected and pleasant to receive. The aroma is quite strong.
    Grade: 88 | 100 A definitely long finish with a guilty profile. As always, I'm afraid of wine barrels whisky it was really good.
