Whisky Reviews for Springbank 2007

- The glass I had in a blind tasting was liquid sulphur. Like nosing a gun barrel some time after a shot. Shocking ,really, and not at all on par with my calibration dram for that tasting, Springbank 12 CS batch 9 (88 pts.). Some bouillons and wine notes, and with water, the soggy grounds of a cheap coffee in a wet filter. The finish is rubbery and acrid. I pinned it down as a "freak from Campbeltown" before I was told what it was.
- Fantastic young Springbank. Great sherry cask with a decent amount of sulfur which gives it that butterscotch note that goes so well with the Springbank spirit.
- young, wild, dirty - but quite complex and unmistakable Springbanks

Whisky n ° 1381
Very strong. Sherry limits sulfur.
Very well executed, the sherry plays its score (without excess) with peat made in SB.
Final slightly woody with a little sulfur return.
- Full review on my blog :
When brine meets dried fruits in great harmony. Scents of warehouse
with damp sherry wood, minty coats that evolve to burnt peel, pungent
hot lemon tea. Whiff of resinous and rubber emerge right in the middle
follow by exhaust and trademark earthiness. Perhaps certain grassy
notes lurking, but do no harm.
P- Intensely sweet in the form
of rich dried fruits, raisin and fig with coats of fresh mints. Drift
of grounded peppers add the much needed dimension to the palate. F- Medium-long. Smooth and heart warming. Finely balance and ripened
well in a fresh sherry butt. Youthful and charmingly sweet.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- This was a little aggressive even after some glass time and a little water, but boy did it deliver some massive flavours. It was very complex and had a very unique sherry profile which I found to be like a very rich dessert. All of the notes on this just felt really big and bold. This is not a subtle whisky, but who would expect that from a creature such as this. Wonderful dram.Reviewed in my blog: https://iwriteaboutstuffilike.com/2016/10/30/springbank-2007-society-bottling/
Big dirty sherry note up front, then a bit of the sticky, fruity sherry. Match heads. Raisins. A little bit of Sodium Hydroxide. Musty earthiness. Sticky plums. Cherries in bitter chocolate. Orange peel.
Salt. Chocolate. Bitter citrus. Sulphury sherry. Nutty wood.
Long. Menthol. After Eight mint thins (lots of mint creme and chocolate). Cherry cough syrup.
- A young Springbank with a lot of character
Raspberry, menthol and some peat
Raisins, big taste, salty and some smokiness
Medium long with some peppar and saltiness lingering on
