Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1970 WF

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.58 points

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Maybe the fault of that particular bottle? Not very impressed.
    • Nose
      Old school, no doubt. Rather damp and woody, very shy, some farmy nose (urine?), yoghurt and peat.
    • Taste
      Flat and mellow, very herbal, not very complex, just barley sweetness.
    • Finish
      A trace of dried fruits, very refreshing, a little bit dry.

  2. Luigisim scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great Intensity.

    Compact and masculine. 

    Less peat than other Springbank but still strong and nice.

    A bit short at finish, maybe because I had the last sip of the bottle.

    whiskyfun (in 2005):

    Springbank 1970/2004 (47.9%, Whiskyfair Limburg)
     Colour: amber. Nose: quite close to the 1969 I just had at first nosing, but more flowery and smoky. More compact too. It then gets very phenolic, together with some marzipan, diesel oil, bitter almonds. Burning leaves, smoked tea, crème brûlée. Lots of tropical fruits after a moment. Nice, lively and so fresh for such an old Springer! Mouth: sweet and round attack, but it gets quite punchy after just a few seconds. Perhaps it's just a bit simple, on dried fruits, caramel and chocolate. It’s very good but I feel it just lacks a little complexity, and perhaps it’s a little too dry. Still a great old Springbank! 89 points (but the nose is worth much more)
