Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1995 WN

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.44 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.

  2. Hobbit scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Aroma:
    unmistakably a Springbank but not of the too dirty, almost sulphurous kind. Rather quite clear salty maritime notes from Campbeltown with the typical slight smokiness. A kind of subtlety that I lack in most of the current Springbanks and Longrows, which are also found in sulphite barrels. Here, however, we the Springbank character is not suppressed or slain, as we know that of some sherry springer. Behind it come the finest sherry notes, which, whether the color unexpected, are also not overpowering sweet, but a wonderful balance between sweetness, berry fruit, cooked fruit, orange zest and other citrus fruits, marzipan, cinnamon, elderflower, not yet quite ripe figs, baked Plum and roasted almonds reveals, again and again the Springbank character flashes on without spoiling the flavor game. The Potourri is underlaid by discreet but perceptible barrel-flavored flavors with a vanilla coating, a great, complex nose and a sort of sherry notes, as I know them from older whiskys, older Glenfarclas, for example.

    Taste:
    Citrus-sweet, again fresh, this time ripe fig, light berry fruit, because of the comparatively low alcohol content not biting or pungent but very mouth-filling, distinct springbank characteristic and subtle roasted and bitter aromas, cocoa powder, almond paste, candy, herbalism (heather, sage, fennel ), Forest honey

    finish:
    medium-long and not very voluminous, but therefore no less exciting as a consistent continuation of the taste, but with a little less oak flavor

    Total:
    Well, what can you say, a really big jump bench with an unusually nice balance with simultaneous complexity. I could have gotten used to it. However, since it is already 1.5 months after its publication in some places for over 600 € offered or auctioned (issue price about 350 €), dampens both my interest in buying and my belief in a rational whisky world to an absolute minimum.

  3. checkpointuk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

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

  4. 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!
