  1. schero scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very cool part!
    • Nose
      92 92
      Dried red fruits, roasted aromas, raisins, leather, salt chocolate, mineral Spring Bank notes, sea aroma, with the time also citrus notes, very fine and complex by the slightly noticeable smoky notes, then comes a very delicious wood varnish note with red fruits
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very smooth onset, red fruits, very subtle smoke, oak spice, also the salty chocolate, very well integrated alcohol, the second sip heat comes on but without burning somehow
    • Finish
      92 92
      Light bitterness with chocolate and a lot of spice, nice warm finish, the heat from the second sip continues here ingeniously

  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    He is not bad. The sherry is rather subtle. But the wood is quite present. But I do not need a big bottle of that.
    • Nose
      Forest and herbal honey. Toffee. Maybe some beeswax suggested. Apricot jam. Pear dish. Maybe some marzipan. Again and again some citrus fruits. The typical Springbank smoke is clearly withdrawn. In addition the oak. Wet wood and some mossy tree bark.
    • Taste
      First, creamy. Cream candy and caramel. Some quince jelly. Then the oak hits. It tingles and also a sharpness comes up. Then it gets drier. Discreet but cold smoke. Licorice.
    • Finish
      Forest floor. Cinchona bark. Salt licorice.

    A beautifully matured Springbank. I find the exciting differences between smell and taste as well as between initial taste and finish exciting. Overall, however, not as lively, varied and voluminous as the Glenscoma 1991/2019 (WID 131140).

      At first very restrained. This whisky needs time in the glass. Over time, sweet fruits come, which gradually go in the direction of ripe pears and apricots. Everything underlaid by a beautiful, sweet spice, in which the age shines through. From time to time, a slight hint of Springbank-typical, "dirty" smoky notes blows through the glass.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Tingling and yet creamy, sweet and sour, a little ginger, unfortunately only very little fruit, then clear spiciness, with time, gradually build up strong wood notes - spice, then cappuccino to strong espresso.
    • Finish
      88 88
      For a long time, the bitterness of the espresso remains together with wonderful crema, vanilla, light fruit acid, perhaps citrus fruits. Maybe a little spicy smoke. An exciting contrast to the initial taste.

  4. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    even release, did not cause much enthusiasm, but no complaints
    • Nose
      Slightly dried pine, light sherry notes, field herbs, honey and dried fruits, light and unobtrusive
    • Taste
      Dried fruits and some spices, woody notes, some bitter chocolate
    • Finish
      Medium finish, spices, light bitterness, a little salt with smoke

  5. Conside scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Excellent! Need to take botl.
    Salty and fruit at the same time.
    Aromatic immediately gives an understanding that it will be delicious.
    Perfectly balanced and the finish is above average ...
