  2. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Good but lacks the wow-factor of its younger siblings. Casks seem to have been rather depleted. You pay more for the Springbank name than quality with this one.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    There's clearly a big error in this one. And still I don't dislike it, even though I can imagine that some do.
    • Nose
      Cheese. Hamka's even. Papaya and litchi.
    • Taste
      Dried apricot peeking through the cheese now. Furthermore tangerine and mango.
    • Finish
      Dried apricot, mango and pineapple.

  5. Bosi scored this whisky 79 points Specialist

    Apart from the lack of flavor, this bottling seems very unfinished for almost 21 years. Since I can imagine much nicer jumpers.
    • Nose
      The nose takes a lot of time and has a pretty bad mark right from the beginning: Sorry, but I have to write it, this filling smells like horse dung. Over time, the aroma will be much better with traces of grape chocolate, gooseberry and coffee grounds.
    • Taste
      The taste combines exactly what you could expect. Raisins and chili chocolate with a lot of smoke for Springbank.
    • Finish
      The finish is pleasantly long with a hint of pepper.

    More peated than regular springbank profile for me . I more consider this could be a Longrow. I dont smel or taste any sulfury unpleasant notes

  7. Armin Fuchs scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    I'm very sorry to write this:

    after opened the bottle the false note sulphur increased steadily -

    what a pity! 

    Therefore a new review ...

    I sincerely hope, my impressions will change for the next tasting.

    Last time it nearly had nothing to offer.
