    My first Springbank, and I was mightily impressed. Needs water, though. And I rarely add water to whisky. Nose: light smoke, creamy peat, dark honey, brine, and a hint of vanilla. Palate: soft and … read more

    Although I’m a member for quite some time now, this is my first review on Connosr. My cabinet has grown enormously since then and looking back I do not really understand why I left so much time go by… As… read more
