7 users have left 7 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 89.53 points.

  1. CarryM scored this whisky 96 points Newbie

    Smell: deep sherry flavor, with the shadow of the 1970s, the smell of chocolate and dark plum, the smell of leather, and the taste of grape and vanilla.
    Entrance: powerful wine body, newly baked sea salt bread, strong sense of cheese, honey flower fragrance mixed with the aroma of tropical fruits, thick silky dark chocolate, coffee and cocoa flavor, not very heavy mineral flavor, which is well matched with other flavors.
    Ending: long aftertaste
    Summary: the rare springbank sherry wine is like a seven color rainbow flying on the tip of the tongue.

  2. Kwokjoe scored this whisky 94 points Member Senior

    This 80's old whisky is rare and really good, and it is really excellent for 12yo Springbank. It's very close to the good Shirley Springbank

    Smell incense

    Toffee, juicy fruit, complex berries, plums, oak, damp taste of old books


    Very creamy and silky silky, sherry wood, plums, dark chocolate, toffee and mocha, raisins, dried fruits

    Tail rhyme

    Medium and long, a little sweet and slightly bitter

  3. sarthur71 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Great vintage release. Expensive but delicious. The overall impression is slightly spoiled by a short, slightly sluggish finish.
