Whisky Reviews for Springbank 08-year-old
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.70 points
- Very nice old springbank maybe a bit austere
- Thank you Roger for the sample! Young but mature Springbank from the old days. Quite the surprise to be honest.
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,
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.
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
Fresh, fruity, citrusy, lemons, honey, limestone, minerals, more yellow fruits, plums, apples, grapes, even whiffs of ham and smoke - very good!
Oily, very mineralic, stones, very subtle sweetness, fruity, pears, grapefruits, also some greener fruits, little salty
Medium long, warm, more spicy and zesty, a tad bitter in the end
