Whisky Reviews for Springbank 15-year-old

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.73 points

  1. Seb.Whisky scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A springbank totally in the nails, the influence of the casks goes wonderfully well with the heavy and smoked style of the house. I would say that this whisky has become a must. www.passionduwhisky.com
    • Nose
      Nose: The influence of the sherry cask is present, bringing ripe fruit, roundness. Everything is fat and promises a lot of fun. The smoke and soot style of Springbank is here a little camouflaged, participates in all, but more discreetly. Slowly, lemon and ginger appear. Orange pulling on marmalade.
    • Taste
      Palate: Quite the opposite of the nose, it nevertheless has more spices. This says the fruity that includes both sweet and tangy fruits persists. Sherry influences this mouth with chocolate, notes of toast and fig. The soot thickens crescendo. Some dried fruits, hazelnuts.
    • Finish
      Final: The heavy peat is fully installed and oily. There is this bitterness from citrus fruit, from their skin. Small acidulous reminders, lemon juice.

  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Fruity, orange, alcohol prominently present. Citrus, raisins, salty, some chocolate. Also some roasted meat.
    • Taste
      Spicy, pepper. Again fruity, orange, some citrus. Also slightly bitter, grapefruit-like.
    • Finish
      Now there is more smoke, spicy / peppery weather, quite long. also some orange.

  6. Alois scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Very tasty
    • Nose
      Something earthy. grass
    • Taste
      Oak. Fruit. Sweet with a bit of sharpness.
    • Finish
      Long with oak and sweet.

  7. HammerHead scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: roasted almonds, salted cashews, eastern serundeng like spices (coriander, ginger, cumin, curcumin), a fruitsyrup like sweetness with lime and oranges, also a tiny amount of sulphur/spent matches (it's more like smoked ham actually).

    Taste: nutty, again the broad palet of eastern spices, pepper, oranges, lemon, lime, some grapefruit bitters and a smokey meatiness.

    Finish: long - oranges, grapefruit, faint smoke, spices, pepper, ginger and a mild woody bitterness.

    A big whisky with big flavours, also a clear improvement over the last time I had the 15 yo Springbank (which already scored 87 points a few years ago).

  9. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting
    • Nose
      Orange, briny, citrus and lychees. More sulpher notes than the Springbank 10.
    • Taste
      Sulpher, pepper, syrup. Nice 'dirty' dram.
    • Finish
      Bitter citrus fruits, spices, pepper, Butterscotch, liquirice and some spirity notes.
