Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1996 Marsala Finish
18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.83 points
- Excellent wine finish, lightly constrained and stingy in the fragrance, but completely rehabilitates itself in taste / finish - dense, sweet, enchantingly diverse in its components, the strength is not felt at all, pity, balance - everything is included.
Raw, restrained, dried fruit, barnyard, wool, window putty, lemonade, light mineral tones, grapes, a little raisins, wet dressed leather, cardboard, lime, earthy peaty notes.
Sweet wine with hot red pepper, raisins, lemonade, kumquats, caramel and creamy sweetness, very dense and rich.
Continuation of taste, wine-raisin with light ginger burning, confectionery tones - jam cakes, shortcake with sugar icing, a bit of spicy oak with light sourness in the background, at the end clearly show watery peaty notes.
- Aroma rich: a lot of sweet fruits, raisins, berries (rather dried), the second wave of wood and varnish, resin and leather, a soft hint of iodine and peat. A couple of drops of water adds wood, lacquer and minerality. The taste is sharp, dense, spicy: pepper and lemon, grapes, sweet ripe fruit, lots of wood, light bitterness, smoke background. With a drop of water is even sweeter and richer. Aftertaste : astringent oak, hot pepper, sweet fruit marmalade, dried fruits, lightest notes of peat and iodine. Conclusion . Whisky is very attractive. Stuffed, piteous, not boring. In my opinion, both the barrel is good, and Springbank's forcing. Well, the fortress is on top! Rating: 88 (n22t22f22b22).
