Whisky Reviews for Springbank 18-year-old

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.96 points

  1. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    An intense whisky. It used to be smoky once, but now the smoke goes straight to oak. Nose and finish are great, in my mouth he is a bit unspectacular today. Right now I have no comparison to hand, but the 10 is not immature, I think. I like him even better.
    • Nose
      Salt, olive oil, fresh apple, mustard seeds, oak, new gravel, fried salmon, mussels
    • Taste
      Salty, spicy, oily, olive oil, apple, thick mouthfeel
    • Finish
      Coffee, oak, apple, salt, remains dry and fruity long, mustard, pizza dough.

      Full, sweet, strong onset, damp smoke, not quite as differentiated, everything lies behind a veil of smoke,
      warming, creamy,
    • Finish

  6. Malinois scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Masterclass Kilkerran Springbank 10/09/2018
    Hazelburn 10yo (2017)
    Kilkerran 12yo (2017)
    Kilkerran 8yo 56.2%
    Springbank 12yo CS 56.2%
    -Springbank 18yo (2017)
    Springbank 21yo (2017)
    Springbank 25yo (2018)
    Longrow 14yo 57.8%

    Tasting this after the 12 CS gave me back some confidence: not the big sherry.
    Not bad at all, but it isn't my favorite dram. Is between 87-88, but tasting before the 12 CS, this is 2 points better. So 88
    • Nose
      Orange citrus fruits, hint of sea air
    • Taste
      Bit oily, soft peat, raisin, strawberry, sherry fruits
    • Finish
      The sherry comes out with red fruit, light spicy, strawberry and some citrus fruits

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    As the old batch of 18 (2010) remains as my favourite in memory, it would be hard for any new version to overtake my first love. Dislike this shiny purple label already...N- Vegetal, fresh mushroom, rounded umami, earthy and rustiness whipped in, with recognizable acidic notes that are unique to SB. Well integrated of fresh peach, mineral and sour milk at heart. Nail polish and get more vegetal at tail. Unique style with well rounded peat sphere that remains very old school.

    P- Certainly not as aggressive as the 2010, less bites in this one, but were (well) compensated with welcoming sweetness, scents of burning leather and refine waxy bitterness at back palate, whiff of used oil soaked dirty cardboard. Mellow and firm.

    F- Medium-long, fresh, sweet minted oak, elegant, full and chewy dry finish.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  8. davidloosli scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    Tasted blind and thought it's a Bruichladdich
    • Nose
      Oranges, lemons, lactic acid, melons
    • Taste
      Fruit cocktail, lemons, melons, pepper, a touch of smoke
    • Finish
      Austere (wood), furryness on the tongue, black tea, fruity sweetness

  9. Falnor scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A nice springbank. Less peated but richer than the 10. Bigger than the 15. More spicy, nice layer of marzipan, sweet complex boy. However still a bit pricy for what you get.
