  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    unusually dry - very exciting - complex - only for fans - a drop of water is good for him
    • Nose
      89 89
      mineral, metallic, chlorinated swimming pool, dry sherry, cloves and nutmeg, old musty wardrobe, currant jelly and violets
    • Taste
      89 89
      Red grapes, pomace, algae brackish water, old leather, black currants - behind it violets and lavender oil (at the Springbank ??) - extremely dry, already astringent, a trace of iodine and finally a strong bounce on wood
    • Finish
      90 90
      stays warm in the cheek pouches for a long time, super dry and clearly woody - a grandiose finale

  10. Julia E S scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

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

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

  11. peter_rasmussen scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    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.

      Elegant sherry invloed the good balance with the fruits and the light of the turf.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Nice continuation of the nose. Playful and elegant.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Slightly less due to emerging bitterness, but remains a very elegant dram.

  17. aphex scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A nice dirty sherried Springbank but a bit too much on the coffee taste.
    • Nose
      Dried fruits (raisins, apricots, dates), blackberries, tobacco, leather, damp earthy peat, hints of mineral (wet stones) and medicinal notes.
    • Taste
      Nutty sherry notes, chocolate and coffee, tobacco and leather, prunes, pepper. Quite tannic and meaty.
    • Finish
      Long, earthy, drying. Orangey notes. Turkish coffee.

    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.

  25. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very specific mole, a lot of industrial, sulfuric, mineral, metallic notes, they are in contrast to sweetness, very well balanced, integral, very attractive, not all sherry pour with phenols, it is possible to industrial and interesting and interesting.
    • Nose
      Open, moist, mushrooms, vegetable shades - cabbage, margelan radish; oil-metallic industrial notes, technical textiles, cooled porridge, grain, sulfur motifs, gunpowder, Bengal lights, grindstone, a little raisins and prunes.
    • Taste
      Saturated, oily, mineral-industrial notes, sweet-metallic hues, sulfur notes, burned matches, Margelan radish, daikon.

    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

  29. 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.

  34. GlenPiWi did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    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.”
