Whisky Reviews for Springbank 12-year-old
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points
- Orange apricot honey quite fruity, very old style, some grassiness on the palate, very easy to drink
- A bit too green for my taste, okayish but definitely not my favorite
Green fruits, leafy, grassy, grapefruits, just whiffs of honeydew
Oily, waxy, peppery, something green again, old wood or even a touch of cardboard, could also be tobacco and cigar ashes, some limestone
Medium long, warm, a tad bitter in the end, a bit like cold smoke
- I had contact with Springbank about this bottling. Their estimate is that it was bottled in the early eighties.Compared it to the Black Ceramic Jug (ID 68577). This one is clearly more waxy, with a bit more sherry matured whisky involved.
Honey, apricot, orange, beeswax, banana, butterscotch, apple, vanilla, litchi and cigar. Perhaps a little ehhh... OJE (old jug effect??).
Orange like in an old cognac. Honey, apricot, beeswax, caramel, citrus and peat.
Orange, honey, caramel, grapefruit, banana and a whiff of smoke.
