Whisky Reviews for Springbank 100 Proof

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 95.87 points

  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 100 points Moderator

    In an ultimate Springbank tasting session I compared this one against some of the best Springbanks. It had to compete against the following Springbanks:

    1. Springbank 10-year-old ("Tappo Sughero", 59%)
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/41678/springbank-10-year-old

    2. Springbank 1972 (Cask 206, 57%)
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/14492/springbank-1972

    3. Springbank 1969 SV (40yo, Cask 263, 54.4%)
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/15778/springbank-1969-sv
    This one is at the time of writing at the top of the whole Whiskybase!

    Conclusion:
    1. Very, very close - in a blind tasting session you could probably not find out which one it is. The 10yo is probably even a bit more thick and creamy and really just a tick less fruity but it could also be because I have just opened the 12yo.

    2. This one is clearly a bit less fruity than the 12yo and the 10yo above but absolutely playing in the same league.

    3. This is thrilling - one of the most legendary whiskies against the No. 1 in Whiskybase. First of all they are pretty different. The 40yo has a very different mix of fruits - more tropical such as mango, pineapples and peppery whereas the 12yo is more about citrus fruits and honey. The 40yo is obviously smoother but is really not overinfused from the oak and the 12yo was obviously in one of the finest sherry butts but it also stays in the background.
    It's really hard to decide and because the scale ends with 100 points I would say it's a remis - both deserve the max rating.

    Absolutely spectacular nose. Just incredible, as i've never had such a nose anywhere else: constantly changing, from minute to minute. How is it even possible ? Palate was slightly drying and thus a little beneath the extraordinary nose. A legend that every amateur must try at least once if they have the opportunity !

    What should I say? Awesome whisky? It's already legendary and I can only reconfirm this. I would imagine that the nectar from the Greek mythology would taste like this whisky. Thus this doesn't deserve anything else than max points.
    • Nose
      Super fresh and fruity including citrus fruits and tropical fruits such as oranges, passion fruits, mango, pineapples, bananas, and also dried fruits like apricots, raisins, plums, prunes, figs, and sticky sweet like a honey comb and whiffs of smoke. It's so intense that it starts tickling in the nose. Fantastic!
    • Taste
      Woahh, punchy! Very oily and creamy, huge mix of fruity notes, oak wood, subtle sweetness, hints of smoke, leather and some meatiness, also some espresso, toffee and milk chocolate notes, and many more - you name it - Superb!
    • Finish
      Very long, spicy and warm, still fruity and never drying. Excellent!

    In terms of taste, a mixer in which all the controls are fully turned on.
    Incredible and out of this world ....

    SPRINGBANK 12yo / 57.1% (100 proof) OB for Samaroli 2400 bottles Rich Old Shelly, Morti, Berry Fruits, Apricot, Strawberry Jam, Awesome Scent Berry fruits, fruit feeling even ripe but freshness, Sherry seems to cover the whole Not sticking out, strawberry jam, wheat and apricot jam, flavorful and powerful flavor Fresh and aged feeling, great balance while there are various tastes, none is wonderful A long finish that harmonizes with higher dimensions, spreads and spreads. This is great. Extraordinary goods under superb article. Again, it was sharp, and moreover, it got out of the mouth as "delicious" · · · Although it is few, it has drunk for over 10 years, the best bottle of my own ever. I have not scored points for sake I have drunk, but full of no complaints. I can not taste the current bottle by all means, a distinctive sense of old feeling It seems as if all the elements necessary for malt whisky are packed, yet it is difficult to verbalize. Anyway, it was a touching cup, the overwhelming "water of life". I was told the meaning of attracting legendary bottles and numerous malt lovers. Talking at the time of taste, the customer laughed at me, but even if I swallow and try to breathe in I'm throbbing and I can not suck drunkardly (lol) This impression, how much can you feel in the future? Imagining what I thought, the night at Nuadori ended ... I appreciate the master who offered a wonderful single malt. It was a wonderful bar I would like to visit with my wife again soon.

    TASTING
    - FOUR SPRINGBANKS, OLD AND NEW
    - GRANDS CRUS INDEED
    Springbank
    12 yo 100 proof (57.1%, OB, imported
    by Samaroli, early 80’s, 2400
    bottles) Colour:
    deep amber. Nose: extreme beehive,
    wax, propolis, old papers…
    Mirabelle jam, quince jelly…
    absolutely brilliant. Bold, coating…
    Gets then quite smoky, with some
    mocha. Then banana flambéed,
    coconut… Then some high-end
    wine (great old Pomerol –
    no, not just any merlot)…
    Then chicory… Then lots of
    pineapple liqueur, Malibu, old Muscat
    wine. Really breathtaking. Gets
    then buttery, with some crème
    brulée… Hay jam, apricot
    jam… Just an endless development.
    Mouth: so extraordinarily bold!
    Almost pungent, after more than
    20 years in its bottle. All sorts
    of jams, orange, crystallized kumquats.
    Lots of spices, nuts, smoke, herbs…
    I could go on for hours. S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G.

     

    Second
    go after some breathing, one hour
    and a half later, from the very same
    glass (no refill!): the nose gets
    quite similar to a very old Sauternes
    or a Sélection de Grains Nobles
    (by Zind-Humbrecht, no need to say).
    Raisins, quince jelly, very old rum.
    The mouth is still very strong: old
    Port, grilled beef, balsamic vinegar…
    even some Japanese sake! A complete
    catalogue of aromas and flavours.
    Yes, this one is well a ‘Grand
    Cru’, or a malt
    king.

    Nose: this is a complex nose! More complex you will not find soon I think, incredible

    Anis, oily, all kinds of fruits also dried fruit, the typical springbank scent, some smokiness, did I say complex already!

    Taste: wow, sherry, cherries, some bitter notes, wood, smoke, complex and very nice

    Finish: long very long, oily, fruity springbank, green herbal, keeps developing.

    An incredible whisky!
