Whisky Reviews for Springbank 15-year-old

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.16 points

  1. rdavek scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    Anyone interested in understanding why Springbank is riding the crest of the current whisky wave should seek out this bottle.  It is as pure an expression of what the folks in Campbeltown are producing as any I have ever tasted.  It's all there in beautiful proportion, the slightly medicinal peat smoke, the fruit, the oiliness and the saltiness.  It's not the most expressive, nor the most complex Springbank you'll find, but its profile is a perfect reflection of what makes Springbank, Springbank.  Thanks to the folks at The Nectar for a great selection.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    • Nose
      Peach, peat, sweet lime, apple, vanilla, plum and a little caramel.
    • Taste
      Mango, peat, plum, apple, vanilla and pepper. With water more vanilla.
    • Finish
      Apricot, peat and apple.

  3. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A sharp single cask from Springbank.
    • Nose
      At the same time fruity and salty nose. Peaches, apricots and pears work their way forward. Lavender oil. Smoke? A little yes. Machine oil lurks in the background.
    • Taste
      Salt floods the tongue. The fruits from the nose are found, mix with the salt. Coffee powder, toffee, leather, tobacco. Again lavender, mild herbs. Heather honey. Dry from the beginning.
    • Finish
      Medium-long and dry finish, with a balance of fruit sweetness and mild pepper.

  8. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Austere it was and very good.

    Tasting note from september 2017.
    • Nose
      Whiffs of peaches at first, quickly overrun by lemons, smoke and mineral notes (pencil shavings, wet stone). Austere. Yes. Springbank it is.
    • Taste
      Dry, sharp. Lemons, apples, pepper, salt and mineral notes again.
    • Finish
      Dry, earthy peat, a pinch of salt.

  10. Malinois scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasted at Spirits In The Sky 2017 8/13.

    Liked this style: clean, mineral, fruity. Clearly a refill bourbon, the spirit has also sometime to say.

    88-89, have to buy a bottle to make sure which score it would be :D
