Whisky Reviews for Springbank 2004 CA

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.78 points

  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The cask is empty now and was replaced by a sherried Hazelburn.

  2. ARDBERG scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    All what you can expect from a SBK sherry hoggie, which interestingly has a curvy waistline like a butt.

    Thankfully, only slight meaty notes and despite the heavy sherry, SBK still shines through.

    High potential to be a classic bottling. Get it while you can.

  3. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A very great sherry jumper, sold at a very fair price (£ 75). Top PLV!
    • Nose
      A gush of red fruit comes towards you, it looks very dense, light spice, chocolate, like jam, light acidity. Raisins, it already has a nice oak influence, a hint of furniture polish, a little caramel, overall a fairly sweet basic tone, grated orange peel, very nice
    • Taste
      oily, full load of sherry on the start, much drier in the mouth, raisins, bittersweet, hazelnuts, light roasted aromas, oak, becoming more creamy, stimulates chewing, espresso, after the start a little sweetness comes through, chocolatey,
    • Finish
      dry and sticky sherry, slightly dirty, nuts, sour, fruity, long-lasting and warming

  4. jujutoulouse scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    Sherry nose, very complex, with pine, precious woods, chocolate that comes to air. On the palate, blood oranges, fairly dry, a nice, well-integrated woodiness, a slight bitterness on the finish, quite pleasant, classy

  5. peter_rasmussen scored this whisky 83 points Newbie

    this one is far, far away from the good stuff of the 60s
    • Nose
      Springbank Warehouse, grassy, dries flowers, dried fruits, mouldy
    • Taste
      cask, sweet, herbal, ginger, white pepper, bitter
    • Finish
      sweet, too much influence of the cask

    N: A distinct dry smoke profile that mixes well with its sherried host.
    T: Very tasty. Sherry cask first, dry [wood] smoke second.
    F: Pretty and fair.
    C: At one per customer and for £75, this is going to get snapped up. *Provisionally scores 88/89 points.

    * Samples taken, so I’ll be re-reviewing both the Tormore and the Springbank in more favourable conditions another time.
