Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1972

- This is one of the best Springbank that I drank! Just fantastic whisky! I hope one day I can compare it with Springbank from Silvano Samaroli ...
- Very close in profile to the tappo sugghero, it’s pure brilliance
- I was already guessing it from the reddish color: it's one of the great old Springbanks from the 80s from an Italian importer (Sutti). Thus it is very close to the Springbank 10yo, 59%, 100% Pure Malt, "Tappo Sughero" (Link: https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/41678/springbank-10-year-old ). It should be also close to the famous Springbank 12yo 100proof from Samaroli actually.
Very fresh, rich, complex, fruity, citrus fruits, tropical fruits, some dried fruits, little wood and toffee, honey - Huge!
Wow, what a blast! - so punchy and powerful, it's a full fruit basket, with oranges, passion fruits, pineapples, prunes, raisins, and so on. There is a great balance between fine wood notes, a subtle sweetness and really faint touches of leather. Excellent!
Long and burning, there are coming our more and more different aromas, more woody notes in the end, Superb!
