Whisky Reviews for Springbank 25-year-old
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.36 points
- Rather easy drinkable - definitely less heavy than the millenium 25yo - but really good stuff!
Nectar, honey, overripe fruits, cantaloup melon, peaches, hints of old books too - very good
Oily, mellow, fruity, very good balance between sweetness and oak wood, spices, pepper, cloves - great
Long and warm, more spicy and punchy towards the end
- Creamy and soft body.
Nutty,spicy oak, mandarin, macadamia, herbs, light smoke. Oakist of current expressions, but understated.
Coconut, pine, citrus, coffee. Spices to the finish.
Nutty and sooty.
N: Herbal sweet & oily.
T: The same again, and chalky.
F: Green pepper corns without the heat [Nick].
C: Amazing whisky on so many levels. What a morning.Scores an A

To commemorate Frank McHardy`s 40 years in distillery. Matured in Oak Casks for over 25 years at the Springbank Distillery and only 610 bottles was produced at 46% Vol.
Nose: Fresh, fruity. Red apples, lemons and coconut.
Palate: Sustained, teasing interplay of firm, malty, sweetness and dryness - and yet more fruit. Bananas, raspberries.
Finish: Shortbread, cookies. ike the base of a fruit pie.
Comment: Springbank can sound like a fruit salad, but the whisky has a lot of authority.
Dave Broom Tasting Notes.
Nose: Neat it has a fresh spray of tangerine peel. With water, more oily and mature. Notes of strawberry, quince/medlar, pine and Maltesers. All quite reserved.
Palate: Great feel. A dram which fills the mouth. Good balance between sweet and almost savoury. Orange curaçao and a sooty note.
Finish: Very light smoke.
Comment: Understated - a bit like Frank in fact.
