  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    young, wild, dirty - but quite complex and unmistakable Springbanks
    • Nose
      strong smoke, meaty, salted smoked ham, campfire, sherry, coal fire - with water dried dates, figs and plums in the foreground, orange zest
    • Taste
      very watery without pepper, slightly sulphurous sherry, maritime, smoke and salt, nuts - with water bitter chocolate is lured out
    • Finish
      long, smoky, sherry, slight bitterness of blackcurrants

    • Nose

      Plums, figs, raisins. Varnisha dn resin. Wet embers and dried seaweed.
    • Taste
      69 69
      Very oily, almost like jelly in the mouth. Coconuts, overripe bananas, roasted seaweed, metal, pine wood. Rough and unbalanced. No sweetness at all.
    • Finish
      68 68
      Stays dry and strong, doesn't compromise in any way. I wonder why it was bottled at this age.

    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.

    Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whisky n ° 1381
    • Nose
      Very strong. Sherry limits sulfur.
    • Taste
      Very well executed, the sherry plays its score (without excess) with peat made in SB.
    • Finish
      Final slightly woody with a little sulfur return.

    N-
    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.

  10. Shane_IL scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    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/
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      Salt. Chocolate. Bitter citrus. Sulphury sherry. Nutty wood.
    • Finish
      Long. Menthol. After Eight mint thins (lots of mint creme and chocolate). Cherry cough syrup.
