Pros

The springbank goes for 120 quid these days. Much richer than my usual so nice change. With the edge taken off, it's very enjoyable, but it's still not an everyday drop.

This fits well into the cupboard. The top of the box may be used as a coaster or a glass cover. I also like the packaging it comes in.



Cons

This is rubbish. It tastes more like antiseptic than a whisky. The best thing about this, by a country mile, is the packaging. No warmth like i'd expect with a brand labelling itself as smokehead.

Barely any smokiness. Plenty of peat admittedly, but after the initial peat reek there didn't seem to be much of anything else left. It's like they’ve taken an undrinkable whiskey and tried to disguise the horrible flavour with smoke.

    When it's closer to £35, you're better off getting ardbeg 10 or laphroaig 10 (unless you fancy trying something new).
