Springbank 15 Bottling Note

A 15 year old from the Springbank distillery with plenty of sherry notes and spice, dried fruits and nuts.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fragrant with a certain richness. Notes of fruit salad and a hint of caramel, pineapple, guava and passion fruit lurk. There are notes of dried leather and old ropes. A hint of toffee sweetness and some granary toast.

Palate: Quite full and rich. There are notes of creamy fruit salad and more exotic fruit notes. There is palpable mastication from the oaked tannins with a hint of spice.

Finish: Fairly long with a gentle warmth.

Don't be afraid to try it - great stuff!!

I'm sitting here writing this at a hotel, where a 2.5 oz pour of this stuff is only $17 US. I have been wanting to try this one for years, but I haven't been willing to pull the trigger on a $130 bottle without at least trying it once. Tonight I got my chance, and let me tell you, this is fantastic stuff. To me, it's really barking up the same tree as a Highland Park 18, in that it's got a delicious blend of rich sherry and mild peat smoke. Unlike Highland Park however, this stuff is bottled at 46%, and it's non chill filtered, which actually gives it a mouthfeel that is superior to Highland Park. Anyway, if you like that sherry/mild peat blended flavor, do not be the least bit afraid to pick up a bottle of this like I was. I regret that I didn't try it sooner. It's top notch Scotch, and very classy.

Complex candy!

This is a delicious malt. Being relatively new to whisky, this is probably the most complex whisky I've had so far. It's quite incredible how much you can get out of this bottle, simply just by giving it some time in the glass and just a drop or two of water. Can't wait to try out some more bottles from Springbank!

Great tasting notes on this Campbeltown gem, chaps! From a neat pour, every note listed above is spot on. Sometimes I can find a few different nuances coming thru in a tasting, but this Springbank 15 is everything above in a buttery smooth, well-balanced package!

Grand dram

Buying this whiskey at a super price was the first suprise (38 GBP ). Second was how acurate the tasting notes from M.O.M are. spot on. getting Nose,notes of the traditional fruit salad sweets of old,tutti fruiti bubble gum, pinapple is there although not so obvious tiny hint of lavender slight peat influence.
Palate, peat slight tar,pear, rhubarb and custard sweets ,really well balanced, full flavour, . finish is smooth and rewarding recommedable.

great cask influence. I always come back to try and chase more flavors. very complex but not too dense. slightly peated, good sherry notes. take your time with this one. very rewarding, maybe not so for beginners.

Complex and traditional

Complex and traditional - there's so much going on: smoke, peat, ever so slightly sherried, all the descriptions read below and more. What is remarkable is the layers don't clash, but kind of weave in and out. You will pour a second glass to try and catch what's going on.

Very good indeed - a tad expensive but you certainly get what you pay for, although the bottle wont last long!

Superb (if you get a good batch!)

When you get a good batch (for me, a darker vatting) this is top notch. 90 points.

If there is a perfect whisky...

You may have just found it. The Springbank has been a coveted distillery for whisky lovers for many years, and this is the distillery's sweet spot. The 15yr reaches that perfect balance on all fronts; aroma, mouthfeel, palette and finish are never overpowering, endlessly intriguing and not easily forgotten. This is what great scotch is all about!

Perfect Synthesis

I have never tasted a whisky that marries wonderful sweet and very rich flavors with darker flavors of peat (mild though), slight brine, leather, and tobacco smoke. Just mind blowing every time. I love this whisky but I love complex whiskies. This will not hit you like a traditional Islay but it will be more challenging than your Balvenie or Macallan...but that's what I a little from both sides of the world.

Admirable, But Not My Taste

Certainly a lot of complexity to this one, that much is true. Got lots of the leather and old ropes on the nose, as well as a bit of fresh sawdust. Not so much on the fruits, though there was hint of the caramel mentioned. The main issue I had was that it was a little over-board on the alcoholic smell... I got to the subtleties eventually, but it initially hit me like whiffing a bottle of rubbing alcohol. The body was a bit light, as well. Bit of sugary oatmeal in the taste as well. Overall- a light bodied scotch with a wallop to it. Not to my taste, but certainly not bad by any measure. Would be a good one for a summer evening.

Superb Balance

This is truly an excellent whisky: as others have intimated, it has the sweetness and purity of a good Speyside and a good deal of the smoke from an Islay; Bunahabhain for instance.

I have to say this is certainly one of the most approachable malts i've tried in recent months, and also one of the most enjoyable.

For the price this is a superb everyday "within moderation lol" or even gifting whisky; any recipient would be pleased to get this!

I love the smooth, sherried style whiskies like the Macallan, and I love the smokey Islay style even more. To me this whisky feels like the nearest one can get to a harmonious marriage between the two. A fabulous dram at a reasonable price.

Now THAT'S whisky!

For me, this is the ultimate dram. Just the right amount of sherry ageing, with a hint of brine and Sam Brown belts. Coats the mouth fully. An absolute belter!
