Reviews and Ratings

rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The most salty/briney and oily textured Scotch I've ever tasted - even the glass appears oily after this dram! Once you get over the peat, there is some neat complexity here: medicinal, phenolic, smoky, salt/brine, green apple, citrus, hints of wild flower honey and vanilla. Key flavours include: smoke, brine, salted caramel popcorn and black peppercorn kick in the finish.
- Medium-Full body
- Alcohol is integrated to smooth
- Medium finish (salty, buttery, smoky & oily)
- Smoky & Peaty Camp
Nose: A real young and old supershow, with soft adolescent tones from the barley and something much more brooding from the oak. Intriguing...; Taste: Ditto the delivery: a slight molassed feel to the juicy barley but the oak is dry and firm; outstanding spices, too; Finish: Some shards of citrus and lemon drop gives a lovely contrasting sharpness to the sweet barley. Balance: Now that’s much more like it!! The last bottling I had really was all over the show. This is still slightly Bambi-ish; But there is some real meat here, too. On this showing, I am beginning to change my mind about younger Springbanks. Score: 89 Source: Jim Murray - Whisky Bible

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
