Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1996 Marsala Finish

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.50 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    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.
    • Nose
      Raw, restrained, dried fruit, barnyard, wool, window putty, lemonade, light mineral tones, grapes, a little raisins, wet dressed leather, cardboard, lime, earthy peaty notes.
    • Taste
      Sweet wine with hot red pepper, raisins, lemonade, kumquats, caramel and creamy sweetness, very dense and rich.
    • Finish
      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.

  4. vredensever scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    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).

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Not mine, not at all, even for 58% crass hard and burning, nutty-dusty, ne thanks
    • Nose
      Nutty, dry, then very dull, dusty, oak with walnut, earth, tart peach, leather
    • Taste
      Very strong, whole mouth numb, nutty-sweet and dry, earthy, dam aner also apricot in honey, spice, nut again, vanilla and cinnamon slightly at the back, but everything just clearly too burning / unbalanced
    • Finish
      Medium long, strong, dry, pepper, oaky-nutty
