Whisky Reviews for Springbank 15-year-old

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.07 points

  1. Zinni scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      rich and juicy orange, milk chocolate, fresh applesauce, cinnamon, a little bit of menthol, lime, resin, birch bark ... was far from being that spectacular in the nose (but the TWE Blenders glass certainly contributes to that)
    • Taste
      sweet and round, strong woody aromas, fruit salad and lots of orange, the menthol also reappears
    • Finish
      drier than expected, now the sherry portion is more noticeable, in the throat it warms only for a maximum of medium, but the taste remains eternal

  2. Luigisim scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Gentle and nice dram. 

    Plenty of smoke from embers turned off for a while.

    Color: white wine / straw yellow
    Nose: Sparkling spiciness with a lot of salt and yellow to light green fruits: pears, fresh limes, lemon juice, gooseberries, vanilla and honey. But also aromas of beeswax and wet newsprint.
    Taste: Thin mouthfeel, but with powerful spiciness. Lots of salt, soft lemon juice, lime, leather, lots of vanilla, honey and some herbaceous herbs (stinging nettles) and dry wood.
    Finish: Medium long - still salty salty. The dry tart is omnipresent and sticks to the palate. In places dull, but also fresh at the same time. Towards the end with notes of white chocolate.
    Note: Since we were allowed to test other bottlings of this, it should be mentioned that this is one of the weaker ones!
    89 points (nose: 89 / taste: 90 / finish: 89)

    there are some differences between the green thistle bottles ... the one from 1994 was scored by us with 92P!

    Just opened a bottle - a very light golden version with the bottle code:

    10:2218K4

    Lets see, how it develops - the first tasting was a little closed experience ...

    But after two days of breathing the profile of the smell of the bottle has already changed some to the better!

    ... and after a while ---  not really very good ...

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/springbank-12yo-red-thistle-15yo-green-thistle-und-der-21yo-von-2013-33435/ Color: pale gold
    Nose: Yellow fruity and floury apples, pear juice, mirabelle, honey and creamy vanilla. Lemon and lime juice without acidity, but also fresh, grassy notes and malty caramel. A light, salty pinch is perfectly integrated throughout.
    Taste: Soft and creamy, round, spicy and saltier. Yellow tropical fruits (star fruit, passion fruit) with sweet honey, dull herbs and subtle wood influence. Backed with citric acid to the finish.
    Finish: Medium long - tingling salty lemon aromas, mirabelle plum, yellow plum and tropical fruits. The finish is yellow-green-salty throughout.
    91 points (nose: 92 / taste: 91 / finish: 91) for this one BC 94/320 (bottled 1994)
