    By far the best and most complex 15 yo ever. An enormous plus in complexity and range of flavours compared to the other (and lighter) pearshape bottlings. The pearshape bottlings usually were not of the quality than the following dumpy bottlings of the middle and late 80ies, but this one makes me think of the best and darker versions of the famous dumpy parchment label bottlings. Fantastic! Brilliant expression of one of the best styles of Whisky in history with all its characteristical metallic and mineral components, the fantastic fruitiness, the unique combination of cocoa and Italian Parma ham and endless more....
    Just one advice: you mustn´t mix this unique dark version up with the several (and in terms of quality much weaker) lighter versions of the 15 yo pear-shape bottlings...

    Fantastic old Springbank - the color is already adorable - I'm pretty sure there is stuff in there that is much older than just 15 years - best 15yo so far!
    • Nose
      95 95
      Plenty of tobacco, toffee, raisins, cloves, cinnamon, cooked oranges, chocolate, little shoe polish, some OBE, whiffs of smoke, sherry wood, some dried fruits - superb!
    • Taste
      96 96
      Punchy, oily, liquorice, toffee galore, subtle sweetness, dried fruits, espresso, nutmeg, cloves, dates, figs, dark chocolate, tobacco, cigars, burned sugar - excellent!
    • Finish
      94 94
      Medium long, warm, more toffee, more chocolate, hints of old books, more OBE - great!
