    Oldschool Springbank.
    • Nose

      Der hohe Alkohol macht zu Beginn ordentlich auf sich aufmerksam und kühlt deutlich in der Nase. 15-20 Minuten Geduld lohnen sich durchaus. Leichte Sherrynoten, Karamell, Dosenpfirsich, feine exotische Früchte (Mango, Papaya), Rauch, Nüsse und ein Hauch Eiche sind da.

      Satter, prickelnder Antritt. Frisch gemahlener Pfeffer, geräucherter Schinken, elegante Sherrynoten, Johannisbeeren (leicht säuerlich), Kirschen, exotische Früchte, Karamell, Orangenschalen, Schokolade, geröstetes Malz und Eichenwürze. Sehr ölig, vielschichtig und komplex.

    I am not targeting anyone. I mean that the entry models of the wineries present here are spicy chicken. Who agrees? Who is against it?
    • Nose
      Suddenly delicious! Caramel rock salt-flavored popcorn is drizzled with Iberian ham oil, lemon slices and black pepper oyster shell with broth. The influence of Shirley Bourbon is five or five. Many raisins, citrus, honey fudge and yellow apricots are slightly dried in the middle, broken wheat bran and whole milk powder. A little bit of the shadow of the dirty peat with motor oil and fennel after the millennium, and finally some roasted tobacco, roasted nuts and black soil.
    • Taste
      Salty cheese, fruit platter, cream cake. Basically the same smell, but less frivolous, more salt, more fat, more solid and powerful, the peat at the end is darker, showing a black and bitter bitterness.

      It is full and strong, with rich fat, average sweetness, no tannins, a little astringent, bitter, no spicy.
    • Finish
      Long, nut, black chocolate, peat, cheese.

    Quite aggressive at nose. So much that you hardly recognise the Springbank DNA. 

    With water the dram becomes mild and soften. Calming it down on a strong grass base. 

    Rocks and salt on mouth, feel winter time, watching the ocean during a storm.

    Strong finish but not too long

    In my opinion maturation in cask was a troubled one and just with water you start feeling the real soul of this batch.

    [February, 2012]  I had this dram during a "Springbank" tasting at Bonn.

    In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state water improves it.

  9. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      damp peat, salt, earth, gravel, tobacco, roasted almonds, engine oil, fennel, raisins, a touch of orange.
    • Taste
      rather full-bodied and sweet. Nuts, dried fruits, orange, tropical fruit, peat and engine oil.
    • Finish
      moderate, rather earthy and on dried fruit.
