Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1993 Gs

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.92 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    nice aged malt which still has a lot of power, fresh and sparkling with ripe nose and great finish
    • Nose
      90 90
      Acidic sherry nose with delicate sulfur and a slight ginger, furniture polish, hard wax shoe cream, beeswax, forest honey, lemon rubbed in butter - dense and relatively clean clear nose - with more time rather classic Refillsherrynase with beautifully balanced oak content partly fresh and partly old without musty
    • Taste
      89 89
      soft sherry, citrus and mint are just behind, cooling and warming then predominantly fresh with a light mineral note, when chewing it is more citrus dominated, autumn leaves,
    • Finish
      89 89
      Rosemary, pepper and a lot of beeswax on the tongue, leftovers of sherry, clearly lemon

  2. Othorion scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Dark fruit, honey sweet, light smoke, a little gunpowder, creamy and super tasty! Horny part!

  3. LDB scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Well done, Scoma, that's what I call a great matured Springbank with kick.
    Very well balanced between raw Campbeltown individuality and sherry fruit elegance.
    • Nose
      91 91
      A pinch of sulfur and gunpowder, orange spray, home-made broth, leather grease with horse sweat, pretty dirty with a fresh breeze - that's the alcohol, but not really pungent.
      With a bit of water comes more spicy sweetness with dark fir honey and it is much smoother.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Full, oily, maritime, quite delicious undiluted, the alcohol tingles naturally in the cheek pouches.
      A few drops of H2O and some time later he is much better, like liquid gold - sorry for the platitude, but I have this association in the direction of noble and shiny, almost bright in the mouth.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The rather dark sherry fruits clothe the oral cavity for a long time, the salivation flows towards infinity, and gently the spicy coastal sounds sound.

  5. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Great longrow from the best vintages of this whisky at a great price. However, less intense and with more sherry (I see in this great distillate as impairment) than my best longrow so far, therefore "only": 92P. Further proof that Longrow ages in dignity unlike Springbank ...

    Color: Chestnut / Oloroso sherry
    • Nose
      Intense sherry, with candle soot. Modriges wood. So far neither profound nor intense, but promising. I suspect a longrow rather than a spring bank. More time in the glass brings more smoke and intensity to the fore, dry branches, old, oily tools. The sherry steps back, plum cake and dates give a ripe fruit with ripe pears. Freshly sawn wood and bitter almonds.
    • Taste
      Spicy-tingly, surprisingly smoky, sooty, waxy, definitely long-eyed. The sherry brings only the subtle notes of dry fruit, with a sooty-burnt impact next to the intense Brennereicharakter. Undergrowth, moder, moist soil. A whole, just felled and sawn tree on trampled foliage and broken branches.
    • Finish
      Waxy, sooty, decayed wood, stale river water from a dead arm, dry branches, damp earth, withering, wet leaves in autumn, extremely long. Sounds dry-bitter. Probably the best part of this whisky.

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    • Nose
      Tangerine, kaki, raisin, cherry, mocha and ginger. Later honey, developing into furniture polish.
    • Taste
      Praliné, orange, cherry, marshmallow, ginger and wax.
    • Finish
      Caramel, mocha, orange and marshmallow.

  7. Conside scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    In the aroma of salty sea breeze in the foreground ... Coals ...
    In the taste is still the same sea water ... varnish, dried fruit ...
    The finish is good, long ...
    Perfectly balanced nectar. Confident 89.

  8. Kensay scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    The nose is amazing, a lot of sherry, sweetish smoke, sea notes, coffee, dried pear
    The taste is very delicate, enveloping, a little tart, dried apricots, ripe sweet apples, pears, dark chocolate
    The finish is long, apple pie slightly seasoned with spices, light bitterness

    Very tasty, slightly confusing bitterness in the aftertaste

  10. Mannix65 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    wonderful komplêx, slightly "dirty" - successful jubilee bottling - dangerously tasty
    • Nose
      Coffee, sherry, subtle smoky notes, ignition side of a matchbox, maritime echoes - with water also a bit meaty
    • Taste
      Chocolate, raisins, shoe polish, beautifully interwoven maritime smokiness - with water also the typical salt note appears, pleasant woodiness with dried fruit
    • Finish
      red fruitiness, sweet, dry and long
