Serge Valentin (www.whiskyfun.com) schreibt über diesen 64er:
“Colour: full amber. Nose: this is a much more sherried old Springbank, much more on walnuts, dried mushrooms, old wooden furniture, wax polish, dark cigarettes (Gauloises), balsamic vinegar, Chinese prune sauce, olive oil, chestnut honey, old rancio and triple-sec (orange liqueur). The distillery’s character is more hidden here but the sherry’s truly and impressively dry. To my liking. Mouth: yes, this is very good. More fruits (pineapples, papayas, figs) but the superb dryness is well here. Bitter chocolate, espresso, Russian black tea, cooked blackcurrants (without too much sugar), prunes, Smyrna raisins, dark bread (such as pumpernickel), cane sugar… Wow! (sorry) Finish: long and even drier – beautifully so. Comments: great old dry Springbank. Il you like dry sherry, you’ll adore this (provided you can put your hands on it.) SGP:464 – 92 points.”
