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

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.
