Springbank Green
Added on Sunday, Jul 17, 2016 at 12:21 AM
  Bottler: OB
  Age: 12 yrs Type: Scotch
  Vintage: 2014 Subtype: Single Malt
  ABV: 46.00 % Region: Campbeltown
  Price: N/A Availability: Specialty Stores
Made from naturally farmed barley, but as the distillery itself doesn’t have the right certificates, the resulting whisky can’t officially be called organic. Hence green.
It’s matured entirely in bourbon casks.

n: wet green grass, malty, freshly polished brass. Butter on burnt pancakes. 

 

t: surprisingly sweet, citrus, dried pineapple, and fresh coconut. Loads of vanilla caramel and honey. Follows the nose with the wet grassy note.  The copper note I usually gets is very subtle in the middle. Finishes warm and sweet with liquorice, burnt leather and light ash at the tail end. 

 

An unusually floral and sweet Springer, this is interesting to try (bonus for uniqueness).

N: Clean refreshing sherry and oak

P: Bitter char grilled green vegetables and black licorice

F: Oak.  Unfortunately the finish drops or this would be excellent.

 
Ries
 

Buttercream, sea salt caramel, subtle black cherry jam. Dark vanilla and milk chocolate. Malt still shows well, with a full-body (complex). Resin and burnt caramel finish.

 

Old school whisky. Very enjoyable and fun to sip. [B+/almost A-]

n:  Charcoal and cinnamon

 

p:  More charcoal with a hint of wintergreen that gets stronger toward the finish.  Almost waterered down to much but it doesn't cross the line.  An easy peat sipper to enjoy without a care in the world.

n:  Sulpher and bitter orange.

 

p:  Gunpowder and varnish.  Oily mouthfeel.  Orange peels.  The sweetness is faint.   It's not classically hot, but it is lively, as if mini firecrackers were going off.  Fun.

 

B/B+
