Whisky Reviews for Springbank 12-year-old

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.87 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    At a similar high level as the previous batches of the last years. While Batch # 17 is missing a bit of an exciting and surprising accent, as was the case with the previous batches. However, one can not hide the fact that when you fill in batches, it is not easy to stay at the same level. This is a great 12 CS, original Springbank DNA.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet and fruity with apricots, peaches, pears, some banana and a hint of smoke. The initially still dominant sweetness is accompanied by a salty, mineral, almost maritime note. Pepper, cloves and a mild mixture of herbs are added after some time. No repression of the fruits, but spicy addition.
    • Taste
      89 89
      In a strong and dry onset with well-integrated alcohol first coffee powder, chocolate, toffee, honey and vanilla. In the background with a sweetness that can not be defined, but then peels out as pears and peaches. Pepper, salt, bitter orange marmalade with pieces. Hazelnut brittle, almonds.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium long, dry, with orange peel, nuts and almonds, with a dash of honey.

    Again, the sad release - young, sometimes swearing, spirited, no words, sorry ...

    • Nose
      88 88
      Very Springbanky.
      Smoke together with sweet notes of red fruits.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Robust and compact, maybe just a bit too sweet for my palate.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Balanced and long as most of drams from this unique distillery

  9. Achany scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    sweet vanilla, some traces of sherry, malty, even a bit grassy, some salt as well. ABV is just perfectly integrated, does not need any water. fine and feisty Springbank, just lovley. (WSZ18)
