Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1966

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.27 points

  1. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

     Oklima,I think calling someone an idiot is very harsh not knowing all the facts , the member who did the review is showing a closed bottle of this Springbank so perhaps he does not know how the forum works  and just wanted to tell people his bottle was a very dark sherry colour, he cannot score it as his bottle is closed?

     If you look at the guy, he has 20 bottles in his collection which is 40 points and this was his first review as he only has 42 points (should be 50 with the review but as he has not scored it so only registers as 2)).

    I think its just a genuine error by someone who does nor know the layout of the forum and this was his first posting of information.

    If you look further down member Col is actually adding further information to what Whiskyjug put in his previous note, he was trying to be helpful.

    I suspect his information would have been better placed on a note rather than a review?

    If you call people an idiot who do not know the system it is hardly welcoming for new members is it, my question is a polite one?

    What is really funny is that on your activity front page it says that you have scored Springbank 2006 11 yr 53.1% with one point also only 2 days ago?????

    Was that a genuine mistake  as when you click on the bottle, the score of 1 looks like it has been deleted but it is still showing on your activity??????

    See, we can all make mistakes so how come you call someone an idiot when you have done exactly the same thing yourself, the question is a fair one I feel.

  2. oklima scored this whisky 100 points Member Senior

    Please delete the idiot who gave this 1 point.

  3. dram-drinker scored this whisky 95 points Moderator

    1 point? Is this a joke or a faulty or fake bottle?

    A genuine bottle cannot be that bad by no means... 

    I'm curious what this bottle tastes like.

  4. Col scored this whisky 1 points Member Junior

    The bottle I have is easily as dark as the picture suggests. Col

    It is "little redder" than the cask 443 sitting next to it. It's not as dark as the main picture here suggests. maybe it's the lighting and the backgroud.

      The Springbank 24
    yo 1966/1990 (60.7%, OB, Local Barley, cask #441) Colour: mahogany (a little redder than cask #443)
    Nose: much more closed and austere than cask #443 at first nosing,
    even if the faint whiffs that we get are more or less the same.
    Probably a case where the high alcohol really blocks the whisky,
    although I get quite some metal polish, parsley and leather. Does
    open up a bit after a few minutes, on notes of beef jerky and balsamic
    vinegar (same comment as for the Riesling, not the junk they will
    sell you for cheap in many supermarkets).


    With water: funny,
    there’s a lot of anise, dill, cardamom, even crushed coriander
    on top of even more balsamic vinegar. A bit extreme in this style,
    but spectacular when diluted. Mouth (neat): kind of a lighter version
    of cask #443, and this is no light whisky. Extremely powerful, that
    is, much more chocolaty (and lemony as well), with more cough syrup.
    Maybe a tad less ‘multidimensional’ than cask #443 but
    still totally exceptional. Really curious about water… With
    water: once again, not as totally outta-this-world as #443 but amazingly
    good, rich, jammy, with so many dried fruits… Maybe the sherry
    is a tad ‘louder’ and ‘masking’ than in
    cask #443. Finish: endless, rich, big, phat… Better not try
    to taste another malt after this one. Or maybe an old peated? Comments:
    very, very high standards. To be honest, had I tried it before cask
    #443, maybe I’d have granted it with one or two more points.
    But after all, who cares? SGP:651 - 93 points.
