Springbank-1965
Bottled mid-1980. Bottled 25 February 2003 by J. & A. Mitchell & Co. Ltd., Springbank Distillery, Campbeltown
Bottle number 94 of 437. In original worn carton. Good labelling, tattered neck label. Level: into neck. "...Mouth: perfect. Immensely complex, ever-evolving, nervous, citrusy, sappy, herbal, spicy – but not too spicy –, more coastal and briny than the others... Just one main flavour because we call the anti-maltoporn brigade: lemongrass. Smashing whisky. Finish: very long, still very nervous, chiselled and, once again, Montrachet-esque. Comments: huge whisky that did need neither heavy peat nor heavy sherry to become, err, big. Not even high strength! I love it even more than the 1963 that we had back in June, remember? It's bigger whisky." (5 Stars-Whiskyfun)

「......口味:完美。極其複雜,不斷進化,緊湊豐富,柑橘味,香草,辛辣而不太辣,比起其他,有更多海岸風味和鹽水......一個主要味道:檸檬草。讓人愉悅的威士忌。收結:非常悠長,仍然很緊湊,輪廓分明,再一次,是蒙哈榭風格。酒評:飽滿的威士忌,不需重泥煤或重雪莉而變得飽滿,也不強烈!記得六月份喝的1963年?相比下我更喜歡這瓶。更飽滿的威士忌。」( Whiskyfun:5星)
