Whisky or Whiskey

Interesting fact… Springbank 18 Year Old Second Edition whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Springbank 18 Year Old Second Edition whiskey, instead of whisky.

    User Reviews of the Springbank 18 Year Old Second Edition

    It won't "open it up"

    My point was not that "very nice" has no right to do as he pleases with his money. If he wants to chill an expensive bottle of scotch, all power to him. I simply took exception to his statement that chilling a Springbank 18 "opens it up nicely." It doesn't and that is misleading. I stand by my original statement that it will close it tighter than a puckered oyster. Rocks or ice,chilling has the same effect on a great whisky like this beaut.

    "Very Nice" Strokes for Folks

    I drink it neat, and think it's excellent as such, but... if "very nice" likes it best chilled, who is anyone else to say otherwise? I would like to suggest that we would all be better served by opining on the dram, rather than the reviewers. That said, my opinion of the dram is I find it rich, oily, luscious, and complex. To me, a very good value, if spendy. I personally like it better than the 15, if only for a depth that I don't find in the 15. The 15 is very good, but I prefer the 18 and will go the extra coin for it. But that's just me. Sláinte!

    'Very Nice' was wrong

    Whisky rocks might not be as disastrous as actual ice, but chilling the whisky will still ruin part of the flavour and aroma. So the critic was right in this case. Just drink it room temperature, that's the way to treat a good Whisky, or as a Distillery manager in Scotland once told me: we drink Whisky to warm us up, if you need cooling down, jump in the Loch.

    "very nice" was right

    He didn't say he drank it on the rocks (over ice), he said he drank it "on whisky rocks," which are completely different. Whisky rocks chill the whisky without adding ice or water. It makes for a chilled (not cold) drink, neat.

    "very nice"

    Mr. Very Nice: drinking an 18 YO Springbank on the rocks will not "open it up nicely." It will close it tighter than a puckered oyster. Ill advised strategy. This whisky deserves better treatment than ice. Neat is the way to go

    Worth the money

    In doing some serious side-by-side tasting of this versus the 15-year-old; this came out clearly on top. The difference is significant and by my wallet, worth the extra money. If you like this one, I would also suggest the Hazelburn 12-year-old, and the 19-year-old single cask 482 which I preferred over the 15 year old.

    Very Nice

    Just got a bottle for my 18th wedding anniversary. My first bottle of Springbank, matter of fact the first 18 yr old to grace my cabinet. I have had many other single malts, mostly 12 yr. My experience of flavors of this tiny dram runs the gammit from everything described in the other reviews with a subtle smoke at the end of the palate that lingers. This is the best dram I have had to date. I drank it on whisky rocks, no ice, no water added and I found it to open up very nicely on it's own.

    Yes, that will do nicely

    Got a bottle for Christmas and have just opened it and it is very interesting. Heavy on the aniseed at first but leave it a little time and it has come on lovely. Nice hints of honey coming thro' now. Yes this will do nicely indeed.

    Salty volleyball

    Nose: sea salt, Bakewell tart, floral blossoms. Taste: hint of late autumnal fruits (e.g. Blackberry, slow and mulberry). Passive smokiness. Like playing volleyball on the beach. Concluding remarks: splendid light participant of the springbank collection.

    Almost

    I am a Springer fan 100%. I really, really enjoy the 18 year. Having said that, I do not believe that it is worth the extra money. Buy the 15.

    The best of the bunch

    Just finishing a flight of 10, 15 and 18 and have to say, the 18 comes out way on top. Lovely soft, rich mouthfeel, somewhat oily and with the trademark springbank notes. Will definately be picking up a bottle or two of this when I have the cash!
