Whisky Reviews for Springbank 21-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.50 points

  1. penumbra scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Medium, peach, oak, sea salt.
    • Nose
      Caramel, honey, fudge, vanilla, citrus, jackfruit, banana peel, extremely sweet tropical fruit, grassy perfume, buttered toast or biscuits, a bit of salt, strong dry baking, tobacco leaves .

      According to personal experience of a small sample, I tend to think that it is filled with Shirley's flavor wheel, which is too sweet, and the butter with Genting characteristics is more obvious.
    • Taste
      Boby: full and strong, very low tannins, medium oil, almost no irritation.

      Palate: citrus peel, grapefruit, snake fruit, orange, mango, plant sprouts, fruit fudge, nectar, slightly bitter, nuts, butter, beeswax, coconut milk, chalk, slightly peat, pepper, tobacco leaves.
    • Finish
      Medium, peach, oak, sea salt.

  2. The Macallan scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur
