    Rating from Whiskyfun by Serge:

    Springbank 1967/1988 (46%, OB, 'A West Highland SMW', 648 bottles) Tall bottle. This is legendary – I’ll always remember the dozens of bottles that were standing in a grocery store in Freiburg, Germany, fifteen years ago. I also remember thinking it was a bit too expensive... Stupido! Colour: golden amber Nose: exactly like a freshly opened beehive, on a hot summer evening, after the bees have gathered nectar from all sorts of flowers. Minus the stings. Right, that means various flowers, wax, various honeys, various resins and warm wood. You may add a little leather, tobacco and grated dried coconut, raspberry juice, fresh mint and orange liqueur... This is simply grand. Mouth: starts creamier than the indies, oilier and even more honeyed, with superb sherried touches. It gets then much more phenolic and resinous, that is. Liquorice, mint drops, cough syrup, mastic (you should really try mastic-flavoured Turkish delights if you have the occasion one day), fir honeydew and crystallised pineapple. Majestic but anything but cloying. I think it’s what’s called balance. Finish: long, with the oak making its appearance now. More vanilla, black tea and soft spices. Comments: no, really, I used to be very stupid fifteen years ago.SGP:654 – 94 points.

    This was by far the highlight of the tasting session tonight. This whisky is just fantastic! Legendary!
    • Nose
      This is an explosion of all kinds of fruits like plums, citrus fruits, berries - I can't enumerate them all - and sweet oak wood notes. The nose is already worth the money.
    • Taste
      Peppery, honey, sweet oak wood, pine wood, touch of resin, dark fruits, chocolate, toffee. Oh, well this is extremely balanced and good.
    • Finish
      Long and warm with these excellent wood notes - no bitterness at all. Superb!
