  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 99 points Moderator

    After the miniature I was lucky to get the big bottle - I think the aromas are even more intensive. Thus my rating got even higher.

    I'm speechless - this is for sure one of the best Springbanks I ever had. Absolutely perfect!
    • Nose
      Fresh, intensive, rich oak wood with plenty of fruits including oranges, apricots, plums, pineapples, bananas. Notes of raisins, toffee, dark chocolate, coffee, sweet vanilla, honey, marzipan and so on. Really very complex - absolutely brilliant!
    • Taste
      Wow, the initial punch blows me away. Just quickly after there are coming up lots of different aromas that are well balanced. Oily, liquorice, thick sweet sherry wood, toffee, a bit citrusy and lemony, meaty and ham, coffee and dark chocolate. Dried fruits, plums, prunes - you name it!
    • Finish
      Long burning but smooth with this great balance between sweetness and oaky notes lingering. With water even more sweetness and oaky notes come up and make it even more enjoyable.

    Springbank
    24 yo 1966/1990 (58.1%, OB, Local Barley, cask #443) Colour: mahogany. Nose:
    wahhwahhwahh! It’s hard to find as much ‘old wax’,
    beeswax, old orange liqueur, leather polish, coal smoke, milk chocolate
    and roasted chestnut gathered in the same whisky. Also hints of
    metal polish, car engine (pick your favourite model), beef bouillon,
    parsley, old books, toffee… It’s really powerful but
    in no way aggressive. Becomes truly exceptional after ten minutes.
    With water: morels! Truffles! Old style pipe tobacco! Please call
    the anti-maltoporn brigade! Mouth (neat): now you yodel. As Rich
    as the Sultan of Brunei, as thick as honey and as ‘wide’
    as… well, the world (sorry, never been too good at analogies
    and metaphors in English). ‘Spoonable’. With water:
    this will remain between this whisky and me, if you don’t
    mind ;-). Finish: ditto. Comments: no need to add even more to the
    legend, I guess. Simply, it’s no whisky, it’s a work
    of art. It was still a bit rough and overly sherried when I first
    tried it - the bottle had just been opened - but after two months
    of breathing, yes, wahhwahhwahh! SGP:662 - 96 points.  Whiskyfun.com
