Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1991 Lb

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.15 points

  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Would agree with KM on HIghland Park profile. A really good whisky with no flaws that just does not make 90 for me.

    5cl sample.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Not really the standard Springbank profile, but really nice nevertheless. I might have put my bets on Highland Park had this been a blind sample.

    87/88.
    • Nose
      Orange, honey... even slightly waxy. Lime, caramel, apricot, plum, chocolate, almond and a grassy note as well. Just a little whiff of peat. Seems more mature than it is.
    • Taste
      The peat, which wasn't very present in the nose, now comes forward. Milk chocolate, ash, orange, honey, plum and pepper.
    • Finish
      Peat, honey, orange and mango.

    (23/25)  Balance is surprisingly good for a 50% and rather young whisky.

    A good whisky, I will post a note on how it does later on in the bottle.
    • Nose
      Freshly opened bottle, with letting the dram have 20 minutes of air:

      ( 24/25)  There is so much going on in this nose it should almost be illegal. A strong sweet syrup smell dominates, but behind that is an abundance of fruits. Tomato, Mango are the key ones, but behind that a large number of both tropical fruits, and a touch of red berries.   Occasionally I get a note of what seems to be a nutty character.
    • Taste
      ( 21/25) This needed some air to be brought out.  Still seems a little bland, but again sweet and nice tropical fruits.
    • Finish
      ( 22/ 25) In the finish the tropical fruit really comes forward along with a surprising amount of tannins from wood.  Oddly the first time wood has been apparent in this whisky.
