Whisky Reviews for Springbank 2001

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.17 points

  1. wncvirus scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: dried fruit, earthiness, peat.
    Taste: quite bitter in the first attempt. But after adding a few drops of water, it gets very greasy and light peat appears. The whole is very well balanced. The aroma is quite strong.
    Rating: 88 100 A fairly long finish with a sweet profile and a slight sharpness similar to English rum.

  3. Shane_IL scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This was a really odd whisky, in a good way. Tasted blind I’d probably say it was a Ledaig due to the incredibly potent funk this has to it. Not as complex or intense as some society bottlings I’ve tried, but veryunique and super enjoyable.

    • Nose
      Much funkier than the usual Springbank profile, almost on par with Ledaig. Wet leaves. Earthy peat. Radish. Salty toffee. Plums. Ozone. Dried red fruits. Goji berries.
    • Taste
      Gasoline. Bitter wood. Salty, earthy funk. Peanut oil. Sultanas. Dried berries.
    • Finish
      Long. Caramel toffee. Gasoline. Menthol. Red fruits. Grape juice. Slight wiffs of chemical smoke and unlit tobacco.
