Whisky Reviews for Springbank 2000

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.93 points

  1. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very nice combination of the typical Springbank character with a pleasant smokiness and the sweet creaminess of the port. Nevertheless, 200 EUR is much too much for a 15-year-old, even if it tastes very good.
    • Nose
      from a distance a seductive sweet-fruity scent. Light smoke, just enough to make it look rotten, candied apple, sea, salt. Oha, now come dark berries, blackberries, plums, blueberries, a few cherries, all mixed with the smoke, some grass, little wood, the sweet Portaromen are more and more clear, creme brulee, milk chocolate, dark and dried fruit, sweet and salty, a few fresh herbs. By no means superimposed on the port, the Springbank character is clearly perceptible. Great nose
    • Taste
      strong (rather spicy, not alcoholic) creamy full-bodied onset, clearly port wine, milk chocolate, smoke, cherries, oak, beautiful spiciness, bitter chocolate, coffee, fruit
    • Finish
      Smoke, dark chocolate, oak, espresso, some pepper, less fruit than before, raisins, sweet and creamy fading, nice warming, a little vanilla pudding

    Typical Springbank paired with beautiful Porteinfluss! Delicious!

  3. wbarchive_104650 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    yes ... that is quite delicious. I like the combination of Springbank and Port-Fass very well. However, I find the called price (around 200 € in May '16) a bit too ambitious
    • Nose
      directly one has this typical, slightly smoky, dirty Springbank note in the nose; this time paired with dark port; dark fruits (plums and cherries); light but interesting muff joins in; with a little time in the glass, the port becomes more intense
    • Taste
      very oily and creamy; Chocolate with a great sweetness; again the port that mixes with the light smoke;
    • Finish
      medium long and very sweet and fruity; again decent smoke; this time raisins and dark spices (nutmeg and pepper); Dark chocolate and cherries come at the end

    Three different versions at least from this Cask: for "Best Dram", for "Awico" and for "The Whisky Chamber".
