Whisky Reviews for Springbank 13-year-old
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.13 points
- On the nose there is subtle Springbank, but in taste and finish that is a lot less clear. For a 13yo it is insanely mature and complete. A very unique and highly enjoyable expression.
Oemphf that is a direct hit. Instantly Dark chocolate, coffee and walnuts hit the nose. It reminds me of Nutella. Beautiful wood influences give a clear sprinbank autograph. It is being completed by a nice floral note and a wee hint of a fireplace which make it a nice and complex nose. After 30 minutes in the glass it gets very perfume-like. Nice!
Slightly thin body initially. But it starts to cover and fill the mouth more in a short while. Well balanced, a hint of perfume, varnished wood. Sweet red fruits and mineral-like. Arabic spices come through.
I would not recommend adding water since it feels like a very fragile body.
Long, warming and sweet. A light hint of peat. Not big, delicate. Great balance, very friendly and accessible. A great diversity of mild arabic spices and Fireplace at the end remain. Splendid!
A nice nutty flavour. Biggest one is the chestnut but also walnut. Fairly dry with old furniture and leather sofas. This rich sherried springer has got intense truffel chocolate with mousse or cream. Vanilla butter.
There are traces of minerals and some complex other notes, but the sherry is leading.
Full bodied despite the low alcohol. Clearly the cream and buttery or oily feeling. There are lots of nuts like chestnut and almond to be found. Different layers of coffee. Meaning from the creamy mocca pastry, latte machiatos towards cappuccino with cocoa or dark chocolate.
Bitter burned toast. Some earthy and mineral sidenotes. Herbs like laurel and perhaps some thyme and clove. That adds something extra, but still the sherry is very big
In the end there is some room for dried oranges, some peach and chocolate covered cherries. So, just a little next to the broad spectacle of nuts/ coffee and oldwood.
