Whisky Reviews for Springbank 24-year-old ElD

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.25 points

  1. OJK scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    On the nose there's wax jacket, lemon and orange marmalade, herbs and soft oily smoke. A little bit of ginger, honey roasted almonds, chalk and wet soil. On the palate it's soft and mouth coating with peat and more ginger, along with tropical fruits, wet clay and ash covered lemons. On the finish some extra pepper and chalk, as well as soft blackcurrant and wet earth. Very elegant and composed, delivering many complex layers without force.

    An austere and dirty Springbank.
    A real personality.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Ah there is a Springbank that it is dirty.
      Oily peat, dust, spices.
      Pepper, ginger, turmeric, cold ash, smoke.
      Chalk, pebble, mineral, honey, lemon, citrus.
      Sunflower oil, engine oil. Light warehouse.
      Young woody.
    • Taste
      91 91
      In the mouth it is rounder and a bit less austere.
      First of all, minerality. Distilled water, chalk, rain, rock.
      Light citrus. Lemon, tangerine zest. Light dried and candied flower.
      Peat is more medicinal, on camphor.
      Smoke, wax and leather close the way.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Final on oily peat, cut grass, chalk. Black pepper, wood spices. It is slightly astringent.

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful oldschooliger Springer, like the mouth is not as scary as the nose and yet very rough, but just elegant.
    • Nose
      Very oldschool and dirty, full malt with beautiful spice, hint of peat too, but only subtle, mineral, grasses, candle wax, strong, diesel, branches and earthy, chalk, with water a little citrus and more in the coastal direction
    • Taste
      But a good corner more approachable than the nose suggests, beautiful maritime notes with salt, lemon peel, spray, tobacco, mineral like pebbles and glue, the malt and grasses, some smoked fish
    • Finish
      More spicy again, coffee beans, herbal honey, candle wax, mineral

  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm Nose 3/5 Mouth 4/5 Final 4/5 (3/5 with water) Whisky n ° 1647
    • Nose
      Spicy malt. Peat very discreet initially which is gaining magnitude. Pear? Austere, mineral profile. Almost weak at times. With a little water, fruit syrup emerges.
    • Taste
      Fine and mellow. Evanescent, light and elegant. Sweetness honeyed. More juicy with water.
    • Finish
      Intense spices, honey and coffee! And very long. Much less accurate with water.
