Whisky Reviews for Springbank 2000 Calvados
45 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.73 points
- I like it, but it is also quite dry from the wood. Maybe also day form. But this one is a nice whisky with the Sringbank typical light peat notes. I had too little calvados to consciously taste the calvados, but an apple fruit note is not to deny the whisky.
great fruity Springbank nose. Intense, apples, some peat. Very fresh and delicious
Here comes the Springbank out. Peat, orange peel, salt, but also some aromas, probably from the Calvados barrel
Spicy oak, peat, some salt and fruit (a little apple, a little orange peel) and a tart finish.
- Are people afraid to say they detect apples in a calvados-aged whisky? Like, "this wine taste like grapes." This is one of my more memorable whiskies and I thought it was terrific! Very unique!
Notes from 12/29/14:
Nose: Apple, smoke, honey, grass. Drier style.
Palate: Big flavor. Smoke on the fore supported by fresh apples but dry and woody.
Finish: More of the same. Very nicely balanced.
Would have loved a bit more sweetness but the smoked apple flavor is downright awesome! I'm going to look for more calvados casks after this.
- definitely not my favorite spring bank
Oily almost a little petrol but also light smoky notes. Slightly salty with light citrus fruits over time
On the tongue first tingling then a little peppery. Shortly a nice sweetness comes out almost like caramel
Short and sweet. at first a little salty then changes to peppery and very slight bitterness
- At a tasting
