96–100 pts.: 8/1/2005

Smells of dried figs, sultanas. lime marmalade, sea breeze, green olive, lemon grass, malted milk and unsweetened coconut. The taste profile asserts itself in the forms of light caramel, paraffin and almond paste; at midpalate the spirit becomes more evident as the off-dry, malty, moderately salty flavor warms the tongue and throat. Concludes gracefully and elegantly, with a mild rush of heat and smoke.

A real young and old supershow, with soft adolescent tones from the barley and something much more brooding from the oak. Intriguing; ditto the delivery: a slight molassed feel to the juicy barley but the oak is dry and firm; outstanding spices too. Some shards of citrus and lemon drop gives a lovely contrasting sharpness to the sweet barley.

Aged in a re-charred sherry cask. Moderately rich and sweet on the nose and palate, but clean and not heavy. Light toffee, nougat, Brazil nuts, vanilla fudge, and honey-laced citrus fruit and golden raisin. Subtle brine accents throughout, with a soothing finish.

84 pts.: Fall, 2007

Thick barley and viscous, with ever-present brine and berried fruit throughout. Underlying notes of waxy fruit (no doubt from some sherry cask aging), clementine, pineapple, and black licorice emerge, followed by the brine kicking in again towards the finish. The most rambunctious of the three.

Flax/yellow straw color; ideal purity. Smells of sea salt, hemp/rope and textile/fiber in the opening sniffs; the acute saltiness continues strongly after further aeration, but leaves room for other scents such as bean curd/tofu, sulfur, burning matches, palm oil, and sautéed margarine. The entry is aggressively malty, moderately spirity, and sweet in a smoky/peaty manner that’s silky and highly appealing; the taste profile at midpalate accentuates the smoky sweetness by adding underpinning flavors of toffee, toasted marshmallow, leaf tobacco, and sweetened breakfast cereal. Ends on a smoky/sweet note that’s lip smacking savory, and lighter than expected. Highly Recommended.

The color is flax/pale straw; flawless clarity. The first whiffs discover keenly malty notes right out of the gate, followed quickly by buttery/creamy scents that are round and just slightly peated; another seven-minute span of air contact doesn’t do much in deepening the bouquet, stimulating only subtle traces of paraffin/sealing wax and cereal. The fey character of the aroma is redeemed by the intensely malty and waxy palate entry, which is dry, elegant, and squeaky clean; by the midpalate stage, the taste profile turns sweeter as the malt and oak barrel rush forward with flavors that include sea salt and vanilla. ends up lean and off-dry. Not my favorite Springback by a long shot, but an expression that displays finesse and restraint.

Springbank is made from a barley-malt of medium peatiness, using an unusual configuration of the distillery’s three stills. Effectively, it is distilled two and a half times, which makes for a more refined whisky.
Glenfiddich and Soringbank are the only distilleries to bottle their whiskeys on site. Springbank has been able to do this because the company also owns the independent bottler Cadenhead, giving Springbank access to a wide variety of casks.
Springbank house style: Salty, oily, coconut. Aperitif.
