hs305 gave this whisky 93 points

[March, 2005]  I had another dram during a MaRa rarities tasting at Limburg.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 95.  My notes state it is a fat and wood driven profile that is very delicious.  Most probably it contains casks much older than 12 years (around 20 to 25 years).

There are several different batches of this release.

There is no accounting for taste...

[November, 1999]  I had this dram during a Springbank rarities tasting at Kyrburg. 

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this dram 92,5.  My notes state a very dark colour and an intense sherry taste both in the nose and on the palate.  The finish is of medium length.  Some drops of water improve the dram, but be careful:  With too much water it flattens quickly...

There is no accounting for taste...

Color
Old oak
Nose

Heavy, punchy, intensive notes of oak wood, dried fruits, dark fruits, some toffee and vanilla notes, bees wax

Taste

Dried fruits again, nice oak wood notes, hot and oily, just a subtle sweetness, coffee, plums and a touch of citrus fruits

Finish

Warm and long, smooth and nice burning

Comments

Definitely an upper level Springbank, the nose is great and on the palate it is hot and punchy. Really good stuff!

Dry oak, less fruity and not as complex than expected. Though a solid whisky above average.

Springbank 12 yo 100 proof (50%, OB, European version, early 90’s) 1star2c.jpg1star2c.jpg1star2c.jpg1star2c.jpg1star2c.jpg This one is neither the 100 proof US version at 50%, nor the UK/European version at 57% vol. Colour: like some liquid caramel. Nose: wow, stunning again! Bold, compact and voluptuous, starting with some eucalyptus, turpentine and mango, developing on pine needles, natural mastic and wax polish. It goes on with some dried fruits like apricot and coconut… Magnificent! Mouth: very creamy and very complex, with lots of crystallised orange and apricot pie, together with some vanilla stick and caramel. Not as complex ass the nose but still very demonstrative. An all-time hit, just a little simpler than the fantabulous versions from the 60’s and the 70’s. 93 points. PS: History says this one was diluted with old, underproof malt instead of water. Cool idea!
