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.

Creamy, salty, spicy, sweet. Nice subtle sherry influence. Well rounded and balanced. The finish is a lovely dark chocolate and nuts.

Amazing product. Top of the line if you like sherry matured.

Make sure that it is aerated well before you taste and leave for 10 minutes in the glass. It has great balance with a most complex nose. MoM price is expensive compared with my local supermarket where it retails for GBP 53.00 and is available elsewhere online at GBP51.00

Refined and full of Campbeltown character.

Trying to be positive about this one. But it's not great. On the nose, raisins, some soapy notes, and an acrid perfume bringing to mind vomit & flowers. Yep, vomit. I've had this bottle about 2 weeks now and left it open hoping to clear this up but it's persistent.On the palate, yeah, a little bit of vomity acidic bite along with some sweetness. Complete dud of a bottle. If you ever threw up in your mouth and thought "that wasn't so bad" this could be the whisky for you.So my advice would be to purchase it somewhere you can try before you buy. Maybe if you find a good taster the other bottle in the batch will be good...

Returned from UK yesterday with a 50ml taster. Was shocked that I smelled Bowmore when I poured the glass. Thought it had been mislabeled. Tastes nothing like the Springbank 12 to me. If this one gets categorized as an Islay from Cambeltown, it gets troubling to categorize. At $100/bottle, I won't be returning to this misplaced dram.

I have to agree with a reviewer who said that on blind tasting he could have mistaken it for an Islay malt...has that delicious sootiness - Mifune (EG)

Can't praise this dram enough. Slight soot complex finish and some sublime sweet notes. Tobacco and new leather mixed in.

From a neat pour the nose was initially light and floral with a honeyed sweetness, hints of oats and digestive, vanilla, and salted caramel. As it opened up more notes came forth; late harvest raisins, tropical salad, banana creme, soft buttered pretzel and candied lemon zest.The palate lacked something definitive. It was surprisingly thin yet oily, with a quick muddled taste of oak and spice shrouded in a sulphured maltiness that flashed into an extra long and minty finish. I know batches can vary, and this was honestly nothing like the last Springbank 15 I liked several years ago... the menthol on the finish was a new note that I don't normally associate with Springbank. This sample was a tad bit heavy in the [first fill?] sherried influences, and lacked the core nuttiness and peat-kissed characteristics I love. Undeniably Springbank, and always an enjoyable dram, but this was a new experience altogether.

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.

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!
27th February 2015
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.
7th November 2014
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!

When you get a good batch (for me, a darker vatting) this is top notch. 90 points.
6th January 2014
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!

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 like...it a little from both sides of the world.
9th March 2013
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.

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!Excellent.
21st January 2012
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.
9th January 2011
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!
