Whisky Reviews for Springbank 18-year-old

25 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.66 points

  1. schero scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    "The Local Barley 11 on Crack" Yes that's it. Very nice jump bench.
    • Nose
      A whole barley field splashes in my face, malty sweet, honey, light smoke, the Springbank saltiness pushes over, sweet cookies, orange juice
    • Taste
      Malty and creamy sweetness, again light smoke and the alcohol pushes along with the saltiness, orange
    • Finish
      Strong Springbank-typical finish, some oak, the sweet malt reigns here

  2. spigray scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    forget the price rating, meanwhile far too expensive
    forget the presentation rating as we all know that springbank´s marketing is wonderfully unprofessional and the labels are a pure horror.
    I just do not want to spoil the averige rating as I´m not that much interested in labels although I can enjoy a good one.

  3. spigray scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    again a very good expression of springbank, the bourbon cask worked fine on this whisky.
    91/100
    • Nose
      you can tell from the first nosing that this is very good (as always). nice fruity aromas on gooseberries, lemon curd and orange peel combined with obvious but still rather gentle smoke and the obligatory ashes. no soot this time.
      it is less dirty than many other expressions.
      after a while I got whiffs of something sour/tropical.
    • Taste
      with water: well, it´s springbank! what did I expect?
      I´m afraid  I repeat myself in my reviews of springbank.
      But I can say that this is a rather clean and more distinguished expression, less dirty and really nicely fruity with some malty aspects in the background, some barley notes.
      a noticeable difference to sherry or "mixed" maturation.
    • Finish
      long, very clean

      orange marmalade, smoke, cream, light grass, elegant wood
    • Taste
      orange peel, aromatic wood, peaches, light grass, ham, cream, minerals
    • Finish
      medium-long, floral, orange oil, marzipan, orange peel and marmalade at the back followed by tangy orange oil, minerals and light creamy grass

  8. p4blo scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A rather usual Springbank profile, but as nearly always, a great whisky. It's just too easy to be spoiled by this distillery.
    • Nose
      Wow, this is complex! Sea breeze, wet stones, heavy coastal notes, then some pepper, white sugar, lemon juice, developing into gooseberry, peach, honey, a slightly tropical side on mango and papaya, and a hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Quite a heavy spice attack with pepper and chilli. Layers of sweetness underneath with mango, papaya and passion fruit dominating, also lemons and some salt. Peat smoke is there too.
    • Finish
      Long, powerful, the fruity sweetness slowly subsides to the burning chilli and pepper.

  9. MikerG2k scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: white grapes, vanilla, powdered sugar?

    Taste: nice and creamy, lemon, bit of pepperfinish: some wood and a little peat, soft sweetness in the background, tabaco
