  1. hs305 scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2000]  I had this dram during a Springbank rarities tasting at Rolandsbogen.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this
    95.  My notes state a very complex and adorable sherry profile that improves with some water added.  The finish is of medium length and gets a little bitter in the very end.  Nevertheless it is a very smooth and well balanced dram - I called it a "sherry bomb"...

    Springbank 31y 1965/1996, 50.5%, Cadenhead's 'Chairman's Stock' . And he did it with verve. Smelling: pfff ... I am through my supply of malt-o-porn, I rest my case. Is he good? Oh, yes, he is good. Very good, incredibly good, very good. For sherry lovers. And for non-sherry lovers who immediately become sherry enthusiasts. What a phenomenal nose! Very intense, extreme sherry without becoming too dry. Full of smells, which I had absolutely no desire to look for. Very fruity, that's the least you can say. But of course so much more. Tasting: my God! Finish: right yes. Yet another association: a cherry in chocolate between the breasts of Marie Vinck. Dominiek was clearly close to the delirium. 95/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/12/22/de-hoogmis/
