    A good malt with a great finish, unfortunately a bit unbalanced. The sweetness of the nose seems a bit on top. Nevertheless, the salt and the musty aroma is a good compensation. The addition of water is not recommended, as this strongly dampens the taste.
    • Nose
      First, the sweetness stands out. The aroma of honey and caramel even reminds of a bourbon. In addition, I recognize traces of potpourri, malt and smoke. The aroma is wonderful Springbank typical musty.
    • Taste
      A pretty oily whisky. In the beginning, the Springbank tastes of salt, but then notes of bourbon-like sweetness and crème brulée come through. Finally, a bit of charcoal-like smoke comes to light.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and pleasant and takes a great evolution to full flavors. The highlight of the Springbank 15.

  3. Jimjam scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    My first Springbank. The nose develops into a deep summery basket of fruit and spice. There’s a lot going on here. The taste doesn’t disappoint either: robust and mouth-filling. A grown-up whisky: elegant, subtle, complex, exciting
    • Nose
      Pear drops, panettone, big rich fruit - but light too, with floral notes, vanilla, spices. Complex, gorgeous. A few drops of water release more floral notes
    • Taste
      Without water, immediate mouth-filling fruit (no burn though), spices, wood. Sweetens somewhat with a few drops of water
    • Finish
      Fruit drying to toasted oak, a smoky note with a little ash
