Whisky Reviews for Springbank 15-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.00 points

  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    Appearance: Medium amber, deeper than the 10 or 12. Leggier too.

    Nose: Deep, rich stone fruits, apricot dried apricot, melon, big vanilla, banana, oak, cookies, caramel, melon, raisin, cinnamon, cardamum, smoke is lighter.

    Palate: Salty, smoky, rich, rich malt, oak, cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar, caramel.

    Finish: Peppery, spicy, dry and woody, light smoke, even lighter sweetness. A bit austere, but long.

    With Water: More smoke in the nose. More malty sweetness on the palate. Spices become less astringent.

    Overall: Obviously more mature than the 12, but lacking in the huge body that the cask strength gave it. Of course, this still has more than enough body. Another fabulous whisky but over $100 here.

    Room temperature when drinking: 25 ℃

    Look at Eyes: golden yellow smell Nose: still a familiar cold feeling, metal, spring water, jade, gray rock, clear minerals There is sweet milk in the middle, slightly violet and chamomile, honeydew melon. The smell is gradually sweet, honey butter cake, half-cooked cheese. Nose runs through the brackish sea breeze, barnacles, and rich wheat flavor Palate: the entrance is clear mineral water, sweet bamboo green, jade, bitter and salty with a little sea water, limestone, weak smoked bacon, peat Not heavy. Then came the cucumber wipes, honey melon + Qingti iced soda to refresh people's heart and spleen. Swallowed before and after bursting with rich milky, wheat and fat powder, semi-cooked cheese, coconut meat. Intertwined with sweet and sweet, rich and coordinated.
    Finish: Long and light, sweet milk, gray rocks, minerals.
    Body: Medium, high oiliness, tannin, almost no bitter bottom

    Nose: 88/100
    Palate: 90/100
    Finish: 85/100
    Body: 90/100
    Overall: 89/100

    Overall: Wenxiang is not as aggressive and impactful as 12 but matured and more coordinated and gentle. It is speculated that the bourbon barrels account for a relatively large amount. The refreshing and sweet honeydew melons and green grapes are fascinating, and they taste as clean and elegant as batch 18.
