Description

The Millennium bottlings was very special release from Springbank Distillers.  Bottled between 1998 and 2001 this set of six bottles represented some quite extraordinary malts at amazing ages: a 25yo, 30yo, 35yo, 40yo and a 50yo.

I don’t wish to brag, but I’ve tried them all.  And what was extraordinary is that the 40yo and 50yo were the lightest in style and colour out of the six.  But the flavours were exquisitely ethereal.

But the younger  ones, especially the 30yo, bottled in 1999, were sublime for their richness and character.

And yes, it comes with the offer to buy a cask of Springbank!

And here’s a note from a friend and mentor who was at this tasting, “Roasted nuts with a hint of acetone form the aroma aided by a slight citrus lift. A dryness, typical of whisky aged in Oloroso sherry casks, is prevalent on the nose. On the palate it is almost Cognac like in its complexity with deep woody notes and the whisky displays definite Pedro Ximenex notes that impart a wonderful sweetness complementing the deep, mahogany colour. Seems to me that maybe we are tasting a whisky that was aged both in Oloroso and PX casks. This is easily one of the most seductive whiskies I have ever tasted! 96 Points – Franz Scheurer (Australian Gourmet Pages )”.

From Obst on WhiskyBase, “A wonderfully dark colour. Scent of vanilla and butterscotch. Perfect harmony of old wood with sherry sweetness. Oily with slight hints of salt and seaweed. A never-ending departure“.
