  2. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Tasted with Aby and rwillemze. This Springbank has great complexity!
    • Nose
      Almond paste, chipolata fruits, the Springbank briny touch, tropical fruits, vanilla - custard, white chocolate and Christmas cake.
    • Taste
      Briny, fruity, tonic, pepper, citrus - 7-up and with water lychees.
    • Finish
      A bit drying with briny notes, custard, hay and a creamy fruits kick come back after a while.
