Whisky Reviews for Springbank 21-year-old

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Thick and chewy. Very characterful. Lots of cask influence as well. What stands out most is it has a very intense lacquer, shoe polish note that is lactic. I’ve only had that in a few old drams. Not a bad thing, but it’s very unique! Stone fruits, cherry wood and it’s also a little fizzy on the tongue. Very cool, but not necessarily an extinct style. You can find similar profiles in some funky Ben Nevis or glen scotia’s.

    I don’t get any Tropical fruits in here. Banana, apricot sure. My fill level was only ok -just below the shoulder

    Wow! 
    I tasted this one next to the 1998 and 2005 versions and I'm pretty sure that this is the 1998 one.
    • Nose
      Apricot, apricot jam, dried apricot... yeah there's a lot of a particular fruit in this one :-) Passion fruit, mango, pineapple, raspberry, vanilla pudding, banana mousse, caramel, apple and a very subtle whiff of peat. In the long run some cookie, but it's mainly tropical fruit in the nose. 
    • Taste
      Apricot, mango, peat, leather, milk chocolate, peat, banana, pepper and a bit of straw. So intense!
    • Finish
      Peat ash, milk chocolate, apricot and toffee.
