Whisky Reviews for Springbank 1965 MI

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.57 points

  1. SimonOHA scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Perfect in all the aromas it delivers to us. Very high flight.
    • Nose
      Fresh and herbaceous nose, fern and eucalyptus leaf. A light but dense smoke gives it thickness, varnish and woody on oak, rancio. Lots of sweet spices: pepper, nutmeg, cloves. Caramelized almonds. Plums and apricots. Toasted rusks and speculoos.
    • Taste
      Oily and fine palate, herbaceous on cut grass. Thickens very quickly on gingerbread with lots of cinnamon. Really fruity then, coconut syrup and plum concentrate, dilution of dates.
    • Finish
      Rather discreet finish on orange caramel, slightly bitter drink, vanilla cake.

    N: Lovely, intriguing and transporting.
    T: Complex oily, fruity, mineral [Port Ellen-esque]
    F: Rolls and rolls.
    C: Thought provoking.

    Springbank
    1965/1988 (46%, Moon Import, The Birds,
    cask #367, 504 bottles)

    From a butt. Colour: dark amber. Nose:
    a very evanescent fruitiness (oran…
    whoosh) and then the most magnificent
    meatiness one can find in whisky,
    combining plain beefsteak and venison.
    I’m not kidding, this smells
    just like a wonderful piece of cooked
    meat. Make that tournedos Rossini
    (beef filet topped with foie gras
    and mushrooms). Mouth: no, it does
    not taste like tournedos Rossini!
    We have rather a huge yet complex
    fruitiness involving tropical fruits
    (dried lychees, avocado milk, kumquats,
    coconut liqueur and so on) and countless
    soft spices. The rest will remain
    between me and this malt ;-). Finish:
    not excessively long but rich and
    candied, mainly on dried dates and
    orange-flavoured caramel. Comments:
    the only problem with these whiskies
    is that their greatness is expected,
    so no surprises. What a pity! Now,
    this at cask strength would be…
    unimaginable! SGP:532 - 93
    points.
