Whisky Reviews for Springbank 18-year-old

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.04 points

  1. DocF 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.

  5. Totoro scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Takes the glory of the 10-year-old (88 points in my book) and runs with it, adding sherry and sophistication without sacrificing intensity. Beautifully blended, no off casks, no complaints. Appreciates a drop of water.

  6. penumbra scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    No wonder it took the best Campbelltown of WWA 2014, and it is very easy to drink on the basis of keeping the style and has a good sense of layering. Personally hope that the taste can be more impactful.
    • Nose
      The first round of sea salt, white ore, fat, wheat flavor, the second round of milk flavor, nuts, dried grapes, green apples, fried fish smoke, shells, white pepper, fruit hard candy, fennel, tobacco, wood.
    • Taste
      Medium spicy, cherry, strawberry candy, raspberry, fruity, milky, salt, cheese, a little tannin and pepper, lime, fleshy texture, peat, compound licorice slices, cocoa.
    • Finish
      Long, light malt aroma, light cream, sweet, a bit of firework, milk salt.

  7. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nice malt. Especially this nice kind of spice paired with the Springbank character I like. Has something.
    • Nose
      First I have a good portion of Fugde. Then in apricots glazed in butter. A orchard meadow and a fire burned away. Also a certain fresh and mineral note. Reminiscent of a pebble beach by the sea. Fresh hedge trimming.
    • Taste
      Fairly creamy at the beginning. Forest and blossom honey. Apricot jam. Then it gets spicier. Ginger. Now follow citrus fruits. Lemon with salt. It continues to tingle. But in a nice way. Salivation begins. Now comes the smoke.
    • Finish
      The smoke is getting stronger now. Still a nice spice. Also some caramel. It gets drier but hardly bitter. Very long.

      warming, creamy,

      Long, smoky, hardly bitterness, the sweetness takes a back seat
