Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1996 MBl

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Kern. Gave it to stand for 20 minutes.
    Nose: fresh and sweet, with a slight smoke somewhere in the distance ... confectionery notes ... Something incomprehensible but leaves a generally pleasant impression ... I don't know how reflex the barrel was, but raisins and prunes characteristic of sherry extracts etc. - no, blindly I don't even know what I would say ...
    Taste: sweet, pleasant, without bitterness, but too smooth, nothing interesting.
    Finish: long enough, pleasant.
    2122 = 87
    Passable, but not bad Malt, no development. Aromatics are best in it.

    I tasted a springbank 1996 - 2016, cask number 108, ~50% on sherry casks at the 2nd whisky base gathering, november 2017. This specific bottle had no label however, but a small printed sticker, but i guess the content is the same.

    A nice combination of typical springbank notes, with it's small peat smoke, fatty tones combined with clear sherry cask influences, nicely balanced

    On the body more chocolate notes, and smoke show itself.

    The finish is pleasantly dry with dark, bitter chocolate tones.
