Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1995 WN

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.23 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Incredible stuff that harkens back to the 1960s. A flavour profile you don't often encounter anymore.
    • Nose
      Very mature and rich, a somewhat dry sherry style. Cherry syrup, raisins, juicy plums and dark notes of tobacco leaves. A hint of mocha and chocolate pralines, with a whisper of menthol, soy and wood smoke. Brilliant, in the vein of those old sherried Speysiders that G&M bottles every so often.
    • Taste
      Furniture polish, leather and hints of menthol. This is just... incredibly awesome. Hints of espresso and cappuccino, with the tiniest whisper of peat, and lovely earthy dunnage flavours. A hint of cocoa powder also.
    • Finish
      Lingering menthol, peat, sherry. A touch of soy. Very long.

    no tasting notes from me this time...
    ...this one is to okay in the aftertaste. Nose is good ;)

  5. Malinois scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    For good notes look the review of: thijs 100 and Erik Elixer, they are supplementary if you ask me.
    The nose is the best part of all. Smooth clean sherry style with a whiff of peat. I do also get something mineral-y in it after some time.
    In the taste and initial finish I had quite a malt-y style which disappear after a few sips. The spiciness in the initial taste holds me back to go up a point. But it's an easy sipper!
    Nose 91, pallet 90, finish 90.
    It's technical very good whisky, but some punch would made it even better. There is going something on, but not that complex as the rating of 92.38 would reflect. That's 21yo OB 1998 territorial, which would be dangerous to say.
    To me, this whisky resembles a bit like the 21yo single casks from last year, in a clean style sherry. I can't detect the '60's style in this one, to me there is no resemblance with the '69 SV (ID 15705) which I had a few times this year. Nevertheless still very good whisky! One of the best sherry matured Springbank's I had in the last few years!

  6. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Thanks 'you know who' for the courtesy.
    • Nose
      Tobacco leafs, spices - nutmeg and spiced bisquit (speculaas), dark fruits - mango and peach. I also find the classic/old school sherry notes like briljant Glen Grant (GM) whiskies I tasted! On the other hand a pitty the distillery character is lost in the nose. Crème brûlée, bread - grains and rye. Later more dark fruit syrup.
    • Taste
      Pepper, chocolate - praline, coffee - espresso and nuts - Macadamia. Later the chocolate gets more dark and bitter. Also fruitiness develops to mixed dried fruits - plums. Yes, the subtile smoke leads to the wished distillery charater althrough the palate is a bit too weak for me. Lacks some power to really overwhelm.
    • Finish
      A bit drying and long with coffee, nuts - roasted almonds, citrus - fresh lemon and tobacco leafs.

    Spicy, beautiful old wood tones, very nice soft peat and a bizarrely long aftertaste! In short, beautiful stuff!
