Whisky Reviews for Springbank Batch 3 TBWC

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.24 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I'm a Springbank fan, but this one is so rediculously priced.
    • Nose
      Rather weird, almost like an old rum. Raisin, mocha.
    • Taste
      Cherry, raisin, apple syrup, dark chocolate, peach, peat and rubber. Water adds coconut.
    • Finish
      Mocha, raisin and prune.

    Interesting nose ...
    Something disturbing is the slightly "musty" note, which is due to the port wine. One already notices in the nose, that from the Springbank little can be left over.

    Nice viscous and creamy Port Malt, with full Portaroma. What the nose already suggests is confirmed in the taste. Nice sweet, slaps the PortWein all Brennereicharakter.

    The mediocre finish does not allow him to jump into the +90 points Core Range. In my eyes a bit overrated, but nice single malt.
    For the price you get better !!!

    Port-soaked Springbank. Sweet, a texture of syrup, tasty. Some will find too sweet. Fun to try.

  5. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: It’s [port] cask driven, very tincture sweet and very oaky. 
    T: I’ve an anticipation for something that never quite materialises. All the same, i’ve no actual grumbles [it’s good], only an underwhelming feeling born from greater expectations.
    F: The port gives more tincture [and then] medicinal sweetness.
    C: There was an immediate buzz around this bottle from the start of the [Whiskylive 2017] show, and i’m pleased for those who were more than happy to shell out around £200 for it.
