    I tasted this bottle H2H with the Springbank 12 Batch 16. Overall the 12y old is for me the winner. The 12y has a stronger body. Funny to hear that my son prefers the 15y over the 12y. I heard the same story of a friend of mine. Not sure it has to do with age.

      Very fresh and fruity. Of course the great Typical Springbank odor is there. I like this earthy peaty smell.

      Fruity with (for me) a little less more body then the 12y old. Sweet with a nice balance of smoke.

      Long and very pleasant. Beautiful mint and citrus taste continues for a long time.

    Insufficient flavor richness, winery genes and barrel properties are not significant, the wine is full-bodied, and the oily sense is very good
    • Nose
      You can always trust that 15yo used enough sherry buckets. The oily smell of soybean butter, the moist sherry, has the feeling of Belgian Doner, black fruit, cherry jam, plum and plum, cheese, coconut milk, vanilla, ginger candy, peat is more obvious, raw green nuts.
    • Taste
      A lot more wood than expected, gingerbread man, overall bitter, lotus seeds, lotus heart, nutmeg, black chocolate, fireworks, twigs, slightly dry, less obvious sherry and fruity flavors, plums, black tea, frozen lard .

      Stronger, great fat, slightly sweet, no acid, no astringency, bitter, no pungency, no alcohol, no irritation.
    • Finish
      Extremely long, ghee, bean husks, light sea salt, peat, pepper, plums.
