Whisky Reviews for Springbank 30-year-old

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.07 points

  1. Allandale scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    The cask influence  is 30 years, but is not dominated. Very good.
    • Nose
      Ahhh: Sherry notes of Chrismas cake,black cherry and raisins. There is leather, wet coal, oils, dense smoke, puffing on any pipes with rough shag. Gothic. Very good. Lovely.
    • Taste
      A massive physicality -this bulges in the middle of the mouth, reluctant to move.There is sweetness- a lot of it- but always balanced. Spiced,wild fruits, bitter barks. Antica formula. 
    • Finish
      Smoke begins the release itself. Long and beautiful . Complex.Amazing whisky.

    I agree with the others that this is probably not a typical Springbank and it has indeed a lot in common with a good old Strathisla from the sixties - fortunately I also like the old Strathislas very much. Thus this one is a very good one for me too.
    • Nose
      Heavy oak, very deep and intensive dried fruits, apricots, ripe bananas, touch of vanilla
    • Taste
      Punchy, liquorice, oily, smooth oak wood with subtle sweetness, with a little vanilla, almost no bitterness despite the heavy oak, dried fruits again, a little raisins and dark fruits.
    • Finish
      Long and warm, now it becomes a tad bitter but doesn't hurt at all. With water the bitterness goes away and more spicy aromas come up.

  5. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    End of the year 2015 tasting with Aby and JJ

    Sample available on www.whiskysample.nl

    This is the 30 year old bottling from Springbank's much lauded Millennium Set. The set of 6 contained whiskies bottled at 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years of age. This received an impressive average of 91 points from 7 of the Malt Maniacs.
    • Nose
      Pine resin, forest fruits - black currants, leather and liquorice. With water more spices, Gluhwein and cinnamon.

      A classic and very complex profile like some old and very good Glen Grants, Strathisla and Longmorn sherries whiskies from G&M.
    • Taste
      Plums, liquorice, some coals and eathy. Forest fruits, some pepper and later more waxy.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, custard cake and apricot. Coffee, strawberries and a wood. Overall more dry sherry.

  6. aby scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    very good springbank, but hardly recognizable as one. Reminds me of an old Strathisla i drank earlier.

  8. The Macallan scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    It's nice, but not what I expected from a Limited Edition Springbank.
    • Nose
      Phenolic, woody, some sherry-fruity notes complex.
    • Taste
      Dry, liqorice wood quite complex.
    • Finish
      Short and light warming.
