Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1998 ALOS

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.94 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Magnificent malt, stunning aroma, complex, deep, impressive in its density and density taste, soft and delicate finish, excellent balance, perfect sherry aging, framing the smoothed mineral base of time.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, luxurious first nose - fruit jam, leather and peat; old wood, slightly burnt jam, velvet prunes, furniture polish, insecticidal light shades, peat, pu er, perfume tones, leather goods, caramel, baklava, roasted nuts, mineral and metal motifs
    • Taste
      Rich, dense, sweet-sour notes of dried fruit and peat, spicy oak, bitter chocolate, burnt caramel, ginger, a little smoked meat, prunes.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, soft oak, burnt rusks, pu er, baklava, orange peel, berry jam - red currant, a little mountain ash.

  2. WhiskyU scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The bottle I tried was freshly opened. The nose had too much sulfur for my liking. Maybe it changes with some air and time.

  4. sagara-kun scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Not my type of Springbank prefers. All the aromas seem a little muffled, it's a shame.
    • Nose
      Peat, rubber, strawberry, light mushrooms, ash, mineral.
      At the opening a little more fruit, yellow and citrus (lemon yellow).
      A little leather appears too.
    • Taste
      In the mouth we are on red fruit, lemon wrapped in wood and dried fruit. It has potato for 48%. A little match burned.
    • Finish
      The finish is long on prune, wood and spices (pepper, chilli)

  5. Mr. D. scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior
