Springbank 15 Years

This new Springbank expression was almost sold out shortly after it had been launched. The high percentage of sherry casks conjures up memories of the old bottlings.

In all these years, I did never come across a bad bottling of Springbank. The 15-year-old expression is more sherried, and surprisingly peaty compared to its younger brother. On the nose, you get smoked salmon, confectionery and pipe tobacco. Hints of damp earth, cough syrup and parsley linger in the back. The taste is intense, austere and a bit fizzy with fresh ginger, orange peel and mineral peat smoke. Almost like a distant dream of Islay, whispering farewell in its long and slightly dry finish. Altogether, this is a rewarding Single Malt and a great value!
