Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1995 CoMo

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very misleading! If I had known this was a true 22 year old instead of the 21 year as stated on the label, I wouldn't have purchased this. Everyone knows 21 years is the golden age for everything in life.  I feel like a fool! I want my money back.

    As an aside, this whisky is not bad. However, this is one of those modern sherried Springbanks where I detect the slightest hint of funky, dirty sherry. Otherwise, this is very balanced with a very good mouthfeel.

    Serge say:
    Springbank 21 yo 1995/2017 (45.8%, Copper Monument, sherry hogshead, cask #470) Copper Monument is a new bottling range from the good folks at Whisky Auctioneer in Perth. I’ve driven through Perth quite a few times but I’ve never seen this Copper Monument. Unless of course it alludes to something more ‘meta’... ;) Colour: Deep gold. Nose: A beautifully fragrant, minty and elegant sherry combined with a subtly oily and coastal peatiness. Wet rocks, sheep wool, hessian, paraffin wax, rapeseed oil and camphor. Then moving more towards fresh green fruits and white fruits. Lychee, a soft waxiness, dried rosemary, pipe tobacco, a lick of rancio, some salted almonds and a wee touch of mercurochrome. A wonderful and utterly Springbank nose. Mouth: The delivery is rather soft but there is still this clean and nervous and rather nutty sherry enveloping everything. It flirts with the idea of becoming too drying or tannic but instead veers off towards a saline, pancetta note with pork scratchings, coal dust, grape must and smoked cereals and grains. The texture is at first soft but gains traction with time and becomes nicely chewy and kind of oozingly flabby in the mouth. Again, this could really only be one distillery. Goes on with mirabelle eau de vie, lanolin, wet leaves and then seashore notes such as sandalwood and bonfire smoke. Even some lightly smoked fish bobs in the background. Finish: Long, earthy, nervous, resinous and even slightly flinty in its mineral structure. More of these kind of farmyard peat notes in balance with coastal zing. Which eventually becomes almost like the acidity of a good Gueuze beer. Really quite great. Comments: What’s to say? Great, mid-aged Springbank. Distilled just as the distillery was really hitting a great, latter-day era of production. SGP: 455 - 91 points.

    Indeed copper color, after the nose I thought it would be much more about leather boots on the palate but it's really fresh on the palate and surprisingly punchy for 45.8% abv and not showing anything like sulphur - thus very good
    • Nose
      Sherry and leather notes, quite intense, otherwise spices, pepper, cloves, whiffs of smoke too
    • Taste
      Punchy, fresh, fruity, red apples, cooked fruits, subtle sweetness, hints of sherry wood, just hints of leather
    • Finish
      Long and warm, more spicy, zesty

  4. GlenPiWi did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    From Copper Monument website:

    “Please note the whisky is advertised as a 21 year old. The whisky is actually 22 years of age and the rear label by error does state this. This Springbank was distilled in 1995 and bottled in 2017 at 22 years of age, we elected to bottle this at the more iconic age of 21 years old.”

    Very nice old whisky, which is very present on the tongue with the almost 46%. It dries slightly with a pleasant sweetness.

    Beautiful, dark, juicy grape that gradually turns into a raisin, along with beautiful leather tobacco and light sulfur. There are also great old dusty wood aromas. One of my best so far.

    Smooth, sherry, flowers, sweet, some menthol, ripe fruits, some smoke, again white fruits, sweetness. I think this is one of the better ones I tasted last week.
