  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very nice old springbank maybe a bit austere

  2. Dirk scored this whisky 87 points Super Administrator

    Thank you Roger for the sample! Young but mature Springbank from the old days. Quite the surprise to be honest.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Bit of a dusty even somewhat metallic nose. But good on the yellow and white fruits. Some honey in the mix as well. Mineral notes appear after a short while. Hard to believe this is 8 years old. Beautiful nose,
    • Taste

      Somewhat thin on the palate and a musty arrival. Going towards pears, sawdust, stewed apple, melon. The nose is better to be honest also the finish is better then the taste.
    • Finish

      Quite long and nice. Old tinbox, some metallic note, melon, pears. Small bit of wood but all very nice. It is a bit restrained to go higher with the points but a nice one!

    This is really a very classic old Springbank profile - you won't find this in current bottlings anymore
    • Nose
      Fresh, fruity, citrusy, lemons, honey, limestone, minerals, more yellow fruits, plums, apples, grapes, even whiffs of ham and smoke - very good!
    • Taste
      Oily, very mineralic, stones, very subtle sweetness, fruity, pears, grapefruits, also some greener fruits, little salty
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, more spicy and zesty, a tad bitter in the end
