    [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
    95.  My notes state an extremely dark colour and an intense nose with "christmas aromas".  The body is rich and very well balanced out of a highly complex flavours profile.  The finish is very long (virtually endless).  Be cautious with water:  It flattens quickly and strongly...

    By the way, in 1999 this bottle had a price tag of around 1.500 to 2.000 Deutschmark (around 750 to 1.000 Euro).

    The key to this one is time ! After a few weeks of breathing: mindblowing combination of ancient sherry wood and perfect spirit. Not one aspect to criticize about this glory. Never tasted a sherry monster with so much personality and complexity beside the intense notes you expect from a malt with such a dark colour! Unbelievable and not from this world - one of the best Malts in History !___________________________________________________________________Very high Maniacs rating !95 points by Serge Valentin - http://www.whiskyfun.com/archivejune13-1.html#060613

    Springbank 31y 1963/1994, 52.3%, Cadenhead's Authentic Collection set. Old Springbank ... yes, that can be good. But that can also be disappointing, of course. Always a risk.
    Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm ... euh sorry, I was completely losing myself in the nose of this whisky. I fear that I will fall into repetition, but fuck man, what a nose! Again a sherry nose that is close to perfection. That perfection is also in the balance between bitter and sweet, bitter and sweet notes such as: oak, nuts, cinnamon, mint, dark chocolate, pear syrup and balasamico. But on the taste, that balance no longer applies to me. Here he is a bit too dry, the sweet keys really get stuck through the wood and the nuts. Even some propolis drops. It should be said that water helps a little, but the balance that the nose did show remains out of reach. However, the impressive nose is worth 95, 96. 92/100 http://onversneden.com/2011/12/30/en-dan-was-er-nog-die-kersttasting/
