Whisky Reviews for Springbank 15-year-old

- Tasted another 15yo Springbank miniature that was much darker and had bottle code 94/141.
This one is really superb - probably the best 15yo old I had so far. Competes with some of the best old Springbanks.
Intense, sherry wood, nutty, dried fruits, plums, dates, hints of leather, whiffs, of smoke, more on spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, pepper, also some toffee - very rich and complex - fantastic!
Oily, creamy, very fruity, citrus, fruits, orange jam, plums, prunes, toffee, brown sugar, good sweetness, fine oak wood, milk chocolate - excellent!
Medium long, warm, more fine wood notes, toffee, sweets, very smooth - great!
- Much punchier and smokier than any other regular bottle of the Springbank 15yo with the black label. If I could just get more of this.
Honey, green fruits, hints of smoke and leather, tobacco, more on citrus fruits, lemony - fantastic
Very punchy, oily, waxy, liquorice, apples, pears, apricots, great notes of oak wood, just subtle sweetness, hints of peat and smoke and ashes - great
Long and burning
Leathery, fruity, waxy and oaky. Dried apricot, mango, white chocolate, litchi, apple, vanilla, minerals, marzipan and a whiff of peat. Although the oak starts off pretty heavy, it becomes lighter later on, like pencil shavings. A little marshmallow. Clearly a nose of days gone by, although some of it may be due to OBE.
Again a lot of dried apricot and oak. More beeswax. Mango, cocoa, peat, leather and pepper.
Now the peat comes forward. Milk chocolate, ash, dried apricot, nutmeg, chestnut and salmon sashimi with soy sauce.
