Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1996 TWA

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.27 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very invigorating and bright, wood-grain whisky framed by mineral notes, dense, quite diverse in terms of the palette of derivatives, the composition is not very complicated, but age and depth are felt.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, grain, sharp sulfur-mineral notes - stone chips, welding spray, carbide; lemon zest, floral tones, sweet creamy shades, industrial textiles.
    • Taste
      Dense, rich, woody-mineral, sweet creamy shades, lemon zest, mineral water with lemon juice, grain, a lot of grain, metallic acidity.
    • Finish
      Spicy, invigorating, grain, mineral notes, oak, a little ginger, lemon peel, creamy tones.

    In store sample

    A 21 year Longrow, and with a price to match.

    N: a restrained nose. Some wool, cardboard, creamy and only slightly earthy. Some chestnuts. Not your typical barn of a longrow.

    P: in the mouth it starts to come alive, it’s oily, mouth coating, more chestnuts, foie gras, buttery, damp leaves, toffee

    F: oily, buttery, wool, toffee, coffee, earthen, elegant. Slightly waxy.

    With a better nose this would really be exceptional. It’s still very good as is, but I’m not sure worth the enormous price tag. A very soft and elegant Longrow. Would love to see some older longrow around. Of course, who wouldn’t?

  5. sagara-kun scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Superb Springbank: classic.
    • Nose
      Mineral and peat. Very chiseled. Chalk, dust, lemon, cold ashes, red pepper. Light sugar cane.
    • Taste
      Lemon, elderflower, white flower, peach. Mineral on the pebble.
      The peat is back but we always have a little cold ash.
    • Finish
      Finale on cold peat, ash, lemon, quince, pear.

    Peated Springbank?! Or shall we call it a Longrow, what it basically is?
