    Great, I am pleasantly surprised, that was a PLV cracker at the time, I have to take a closer look at the new releases to see if the quality is just as good
    • Nose
      Wow, what a voluminous aroma, the sherry comes across very nicely, sweet, raisins, with a very well integrated and suitable sulfur note, which makes it look a bit dirty, this turns into roasted aromas, nutty, milk chocolate, espresso, the cask strength only a positive contribution to the aroma load, there is a note of grated lemon peel, greasy, and over time, delicate smoke comes out, very nice
    • Taste
      oily, full-bodied, sweet, sherry, raisins, the super-integrated sulfur, roasted aromas, Hanuta, the chocolate tends towards bittersweet, great mouthfeel
    • Finish
      Freshness spreads, a little mint, nuts, raisins, grape-like, remains long, light smoke on the palate, very grape-like and fresh

    Springbank 12yo Cask Strength Extravaganza: 2022.11.12.

    Now that it’s been more than a year since the last release of the last CS12yo I saw it fit to go into my sample cabinet and dig up all the batches I could find. Here is what it resulted in: a gargantuan tasting of 13 different batches. I had to turn to decimal scores to do justice to this session (this is something I haven’t done before, mind you). Glassware is 1920’s blenders glass. In Order of my preference:

    Batch #21 (45% Sherry, 25% Bourbon, 25% Burgundy 5% Port) 56.1%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/168596
    87.2 / 86.4 / 85.6
    This one is a bit of a confused batch for me, too much is going on at the same time. It has some nice pine resin notes and lots of wet wine cask character. The cask influence takes over distillery character too much for my taste.
    86.4

    Batch #12 (65% Sherry, 35% Bourbon) 54.1%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/77708
    87.4 / 87.2 / 87.3
    This batch drinks quite a bit younger than its age. There is a sulphury quality on the nose and a particular earthy smokiness.
    87.3

    Batch #22 (50% Sherry, 50% Bourbon) 55.4%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/183244
    87.4 / 87.8 / 87.2
    Most definitely, a modern style of SB distillate, the funkiness is elevated, and I even find some of the HB bitterness on the finish, I like this style. The spicy, resinous European oak is rather present on the palate.
    87.4

    Batch #16 (70% Sherry, 30% Bourbon) 56.3%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/105550
    87.8 / 88.2 / 87.4
    This one has a good balance of sherry and bourbon, some roastiness, dried fruits, wood smoke, some nuttiness even. The malt comes through cleanly with lots of vanilla and floral notes, there is just a hint of menthol as well.
    87.8

    Batch #13 (70% Sherry, 30% Bourbon) 56.3%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/85595
    88.2 / 88.4 / 87.2
    A more sherry forward batch with intense spiciness and complex boiled or candied fruit notes. Camphor, dirty distillate - farmyard, drying woodiness on the finish.
    87.9

    Batch #18 (50% Bourbon, 50% Sherry) 54.8%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/125395
    88.2 / 88.4 / 87.6
    This has some very nice honied sweetness as well as floral freshness accompanying the rich maltiness and spiciness of the spirit. Fresh and white-oak-forward.
    88.1

    Batch #17 (70% Sherry, 30% Bourbon) 56.2%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/116449
    88.4 / 88.6 / 87.6
    Intense, rich maltiness, vibrant spices and honey. Minerally distillate, earthy smoke in beautiful balance with the fruity, syrupy cask influence.
    88.2

    Batch#23 (100% Bourbon) 55.9%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/192086
    88.6 / 89.0 / 88.2
    Very modern green type of American oak influence. A bit sappy, almost too sweet… but the creamy texture and the floral barley character comes through from the spirit, making it a very clean, juicy expression from the distillery. Most definitely dominated by the first-fill white oak.
    88.6

    Batch #19 (65% Bourbon, 35% Sherry Casks) 57.1%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/138854
    88.6 / 89.4 / 88.4
    Smoky, dirty, resinous. Roasted malt and a bit of waxiness from the distillate. Strong honey note, vanilla, ripe fruits, and a touch of sulphur alongside the SB funk.
    88.8

    Batch #20 (35% Sherry, 65% Bourbon) 55.3%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/148336
    89.6 / 89.4 / 88.4
    Heavy body, creamy, malty, spirit driven. Nice depth and sweetness from the reserved sherry influence. The barley comes through clearly, heavy oily texture, farmy, funky aromas. Almost reminiscent of the recent local barleys.
    89.2

    Blues Edition (100% Bourbon) 57.3%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/21544
    88.6 / 90.2 / 89.4
    A masterpiece in floral bourbon maturation. Leathery, waxy and dirty, exploding with floral complexity and mineral hay notes. Almost no smoke, but a tiny bit of farminess. Drinks considerably older than 12 years.
    89.4

    Batch #15 (70% Sherry, 30% Bourbon) 56.5%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/99298
    89.2 / 89.6 / 89.4
    Strong, spicy sherry influence, concentrated smoky fruitiness. Earthy vanilla, oily barley and pronounced farmy funk. This is one of the most intense batches and one of the dirtiest. The style of ‘dirty’ sherry casks is reminiscent of the old-school SB-sherry-funk.
    89.4

    Batch #9 (100% Sherry) 54.3%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/57458
    90.2 / 90.2 / 89.4
    Elegant and fruity style of sherry comint through. Classic oloroso aromas, in perfect harmony with the dry and farmyard-y spirit. Spices from the resinous European oak, white pepper nutmeg, vegetal freshness and honied floral notes. Dry maltiness, some plaster, earthy smoke; all enveloped in thick juicy sherry.
    89.9

    And the baseline: Springbank 10yo (20/151) 46%
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/180670
    87.6 / 87.4 / 87.2
    Fresh woody and yeasty. Bitter funkiness not unlike HB, and some plaster. Fresh floral honey, some damp hay, dried apples and pears, waxy texture, barley-sweetness. Camphor and sharp spices give more depth.

    Finally batch 9 - least appealing initially as fairly dirty rubbery start that swamps the underlying quality. Time please - amazing cow byrne and fresh mature arrive - sweet hay meadow manure. More time then the soft fleshed fruits - apricots and peaches. More time the now Smokey manure gives way to soot and dispersible aspirins and lemons. The palate has more soft fleshed summer fruits, full and oily mouthfeel, salted almond skins, more soot! Then the finish is into cocoa powder pu erh tea ash and soot

  16. etwa77 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      90 90
      strong, heavy, greasy engine oil.. charred lemons on the grill.. roasted almonds.. cold ashes and then more lemons.. an illusive floral aroma that i am not sure if i’m imagining or it’s really there.. minerality (i love this word!)
    • Taste
      90 90
      sweet and sour.. even though very oily and creamy, the alcohol can be felt and it packs quite a punch. the sherry comes late indeed, after the lemons, the ash, the slightly bitter oak and the salty liquorice. but it’s a joy when it finally does. It throws everything into taste estavaganzza! with water, we seem to be going straight towards Longrow territory.. there’s a hint of pinot noir hiding in there, as well.
    • Finish
      88 88
      no fruits, just ash..

      i do get asprin (not so much the sand note) - thanks, Thermidor, for the the suggestion - but i actually like aspirin.. together with the vibrant, spicy lemons they make the lemon schweppes that the voice of whiskyfun is mentioning..

      the oils last forever!

  17. Issie did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    • Nose
      a little dusty, wood, lemon, nuts, cress, a little peach, gooseberries (well I've almost never had that) and apple, a good distance from the glass

      Hmm now the smell changes completely: honey, cereals, cherry, strawberry, nutmeg and another spice whose name I am not coming from right now

      Wow that is really complex
    • Taste
      Oha .. He also has real power. Honey, cereals, cherry, lime, strawberry, lemon, chilli, wood

  18. Scherenschnitte scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Dirty. Funky. Ashy. Spicy. Excellent.

    *These notes are from memory... taken in a less than ideal happy hour bar setting* Admittedly, I was probably a bit tipsy too...⁣ Ha!
    • Nose
      Oh my! A blast of soot, ashes and mild smoke. Springbankian funk is evident from the start. Wet, damp wood. Plenty of earthy/farm notes. Yum! A hint of lemon and dried fruits as well⁣
    • Taste
      Dirty (in the best way possible). A greasy, oily mouthfeel. Light smoke from the peat is evident. Peppery spices with bitter orange peel. Some apricots, lemons, dried fruits
    • Finish
      Very long. Sooty, black pepper spice, slightly smoky with some ashy notes

  20. Thermidor scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    For the price, a must buy for anyone into these idiosyncratic, un-modern whisky styles.
    • Nose
      Wet leather and wet wood, and some greasy smoke. Faint nutty oiliness, and a notion of a musty old wine cask. Ripe fruit and sparks. With water: Even more leather, and tar. With more water some circuit boards after a short circuit.
    • Taste
      Dirty in a good way. Mouth-coating greasiness meets leathery wine notes, with a very solid, almost heavy body sealing the deal. Dry wood on exit. Full and not an inch flabby either neat or with water. With water it becomes smokier and rougher, but otherwise doesn't change much. Wonderful both neat and decanted.
    • Finish
      Lasting tarry fruitiness with some dry liquorice on exit, and at the end some aspirin which thankfully is rounded out by the cask influence (the aspirin/sand notes are not my favourite part of SB).

  21. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Just great, great whisky. As always, the CS-series from Springbank offers great quality for a great price.
    • Nose
      Sweet dried fruits, burlap and touches of lemon. Somewhat briny and plenty of minerality. After about ten minutes it becomes darker and earthier. Very farmy too. Just really great!
    • Taste
      The peat now a bit more noticeable. Lovely oily mouthfeel, with a sugary sweetness, but also charred lemon peel, cigar ash and peaches. Oh, don't forget cloves and cracked black pepper. Don't forget the bitter oranges.
    • Finish
      Soft peat and lingering spices, with a hint of oranges.

  22. St. Pauli scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    High quality for a sensible (release) price.
    • Nose
      Mildly peaty, lemon, dunnage warehouse, dried fruit, earth (dirt, humus), soot, clay, barley and honey.
    • Taste
      The peat seems to be a bit more intense. Furthermore: lemon, soot, oil, almond, barley, peach, orange and apricot.
    • Finish
      Oily, sooty, with warming spices, soft peat again, less fruit than on the nose and taste (mainly lemon and orange).

  27. Palindrome scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This batch is overrated. It has problems with sulfur. My rating: 84. I am a big fan of Springbank and I love many of the 12 year cask strength releases. This is not one of them. The nose is unaffected. It is lovely. The palate suffers from sulfur but the finish is nice. 

  28. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Again a very nice batch of the 12 CS. The 40% refill sherry you notice late, but they provide a nice finish. Undiluted best.
    • Nose
      A very nice nose, dominated at the beginning of ripe red apples, pears and some "exotic" fruits such as apricots. Overall, very airy and fresh, that puts you in the mood for more. Despite the cask strength many different flavors come through. After a while, the nose becomes slightly peppery, also some salt is visible. I would like to see some peat, but can not find it here. A very round nose.
    • Taste
      The sweetness of apples, apricots and peaches floods the mouth. A touch of fresh hay can be found. Herbs of a wildflower meadow. A touch of salt. He does not need water, there is nothing burning, pure heat. The fruit flavors are preserved for a very long time and become somewhat "darker" over time. That may be because after a while, the oak pushes out of the barrel to the front. As soon as the woody note sets, you will also find the influence of the refill sherry keg.
    • Finish
      A nice long finish that does not dry until very late. Rear out, red grapes and some white pepper dominate.

    Serge says:

    Springbank 12 yo 'Cask Strength' (54.3%, OB, batch #9, 2014)
    The latest I tried had been bottled at 50.3% last year. WF 88. Colour:
    gold. Nose: typical, starting with burnt matches, soot and plasticine,
    then these very ‘funny’ and no less typical notes of lemon-scented
    washing powder and gravel, then many oils and some cinchona. Schweppes
    Lemon? What did you expect? (oh, no!) With water: perfect dirty concrete
    after a warm rain, old garage, ashes and maybe just a little too much
    chalk. Lemon-flavoured yogurt. Mouth (neat): oh this is strong! Peated
    lemons? Softened wasabi? Then paraffin? Cigar ashes? Smoked tea? Love.
    With water: more love. Bitter oranges, mandarins, curry, ginger, lemon,
    peat, liquorice. Finish: long, tart, ashy, sooty, spicy. Pickled ginger
    and oranges in the aftertaste. Comments: the flipside is that this is
    what I had expected. Full glorious raw Springbankness – a spirit that’s
    got something to tell you. Err, I’m afraid I’m starting to sound like a…
    brochure. SGP:462 - 90 points.

    An elegant whisky, complete, that plays on all aromatic tables. I did not add water. Rating: 89
    • Nose
      An intense and fruity nose (dates, plums, figs, exotic fruits), liquorice and a slight almost imperceptible smoke. A citrus scent tq lemon or grapefruit.
    • Taste
      In mouth emerges a balanced power and a certain depth. This whisky is very elegant with a hint of peat, chocolate, oak, and exotic fruit tq mango or papaya.
    • Finish
      A warm finish relatively long and spicy (pepper). Chocolate and exotic fruits.

    An excellent Springer.
    Tasted side by side to some other batches (2/7/8/10) surely one of the very best batches of the 12 yo CS-series.
    With a little water (which opens it up) a full, deep, very good dram becomes a really excellent one. Great price-values-ratio !

    Our 12-year-old edition, always bottled at cask strength, is a wonderfully balanced dram that boasts a smooth buttery body and rich fruity palate. Add a drop of water to release milk chocolate and vanilla notes.

    Tasting Notes by Springbank
    • Nose
      Raisins, nuts, sultanas and liquorice.
    • Taste
      Raisins, figs, linseed oil and a touch of papaya.

    a great dram for autumn days outdoors or winter evenings by the fireplace. What irritates me a bit: despite the relatively high first-fill sherry content, I find it very difficult to find typical sherry flavors here.
    • Nose
      ohja, nice fruity nose (papaya, citrus) in combination with some smoke and salty-musty flavors ("maritime"), sherry flavors I find rather less,
    • Taste
      beautiful campfire smoke, creamy-sweet, neat alcohol,
    • Finish
      sweet and smoky, ashes with honey, the sweetness stays longer in the mouth than the smoke, overall very long and warm

    This is simply satisfying whisky. It has something for everybody and
    manages to shine in terms of balance and flavor composition. After
    having tasted the 10yo a while back in a bar, this is my second
    Springbank and I must say, damn good stuff Sir. Dilution is not really
    needed, as the alcohol is very well integrated, but it does take water
    very very well. I accidently “drowned” a dram of this a few weeks ago,
    and it still retained most of its character.
    • Nose
      Sweet and sour, with a profound creaminess which I have never noticed
      like this before. Mild warm smoke, like salted butter melted over cedar
      wood. The sherry is there, but very mannered. Suggesting from the rather
      light color, either the refill was very exhausted, or the first-fill
      did not contain oloroso, but rather lighter variants. Manzanilla
      perhaps? Cotton candy, malt, and a little later there is a good measure
      of roasted coffee beans and finally, leather.
    • Taste
      The arrival is very balanced in terms of sweet and dry. Followed by lots
      of vanilla and salted cream toffee. Different strokes of dried fruit,
      such as raisins, banana slices, and oranges. The peat level is
      relatively low, which in my book is a good thing.
    • Finish
      Rather long, with sweet wood spice and very little bitterness. Licorice, vanilla, and a pleasant smokiness paint the finish.

    sometimes you feel like you're on a very old rum or raw brandy. A very elegant whisky, complex, with lots of fruit and a certain class. On the other hand, I did not find any peat.
    Compared with batch 7: the latter is less elegant, but sweeter, more greedy, more fat, always on the cherry, it is drunk almost "too easily" maybe the 4% of difference
    • Nose
      Very fine, very soft, elegant. And surprise, exotic notes: pineapple, passion fruit. The sherry is manifested by a sensation "my darling", the German, dark chocolate filled with cherry brandy. Also a little lemon, almond cake, raisins.
    • Taste
      Texture a little greasy, not too sweet, with a little wax. Alcohol well integrated. It's still very thin, always a little passion fruit, raisin, cherry. Very nice fruity. A little grass in the end.
    • Finish
      Liquorous, long, warm. Dark chocolate, raisins and cherry.

    Yet another great batch of this expression. Compared to the preceding batch, this one is even peatier while the sherry influence seems to be a bit more subtle. They're very similar though.
    • Nose
      Fatty tropical fruit such as mango and papaya and quite a lot of peat. Apricot and dark chocolate. A little grapefruit.
    • Taste
      Mango, apricot, peat, dark chocolate, toffee, pepper and again a little grapefruit.
    • Finish
      Peat ash, mango, apricot, papaya, dark chocolate, toffee, pepper and gingerbread.
