Whisky reviews for Springbank 175th Anniversary

6 users have left 7 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 85.50 points.

  1. hsmithjr scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    I expected more from an anniversary malt from the guys at Springbank.  For the money, the 15 or the 18 are the way to go.
    • Nose
      Sweet apples.  Vanilla and spicy oak.  Honey.  Polyurethane. 
    • Taste
      Spicy and sweet.  More bite than I would expect from a 46% ABV (in a good way).  Caramel apples.  Some cinnamon, and more honey. Smoke toward the end.
    • Finish
      Honey and kitchen spices.  Brine.  Soft peat.  Ends with smoke, and some oak.  After a few minutes, a salty aftertaste (again, in a good way).

    I drank this just before the Arran Devil's Punch Bowl III and the Springbank won hands down, so much more complex. No fancy packaging but the whisky speaks for itself. A great dram!

    As I`m emptying the bottle, I would say my tasting note written 10 months ago, is consitent. Just a little more spices added to the aroma.
