Whisky Reviews for Springbank 15-year-old

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 88 points Administrator

    In all these years, I did never come across a bad bottling of Springbank. The 15-year-old expression is more sherried, and surprisingly peaty compared to its younger brother. On the nose, you get smoked salmon, confectionery and pipe tobacco. Hints of damp earth, cough syrup and parsley linger in the back. The taste is strong, austere and a bit fizzy with fresh ginger, orange peel and mineral peat smoke. Almost like a distant dream of Islay, whispering farewell in its long and slightly dry finish. Altogether, this is a rewarding Single Malt and a great value!

    Thanks to Healthy Good for a sample of this nice dram.
    • Nose
      Nice Springbank nose, with that farmy touch.

      More savoury rich on sweet fruit than others I've tried lately.

      A hint of that "burnt electronic" I find in the 12CS, but not as articulated. This is more on burnt out matches and earthy peat.

      Mature cigar and some underlying fat nuttynness.
    • Taste
      Much more upfront on the peat compared to the nose.

      Herbal. Salt. Right amount of spice and suitable abv.

      Bold on cigar/tobacco leaf, with a touch of fresh orange citrus.
    • Finish
      Peat hangs in there to the slightly bitter drying end. Quite long, lingering on cigar leaf and realy dark chocolate.
