General description

Aroma: sehr fruchtig (Citrus), süß, minimaler Rauch, leichter Sherry, Honig

Geschmack: süß, sehr fruchtig, leichte Öligkeit, Eiche, leichter Medizinrauch, leicht würzig

Abgang: etwas Malz, fruchtig, minimal herb, kein Rauch, etwas Sherry, leicht würzig, Karamell

Fazit: Liegt wunderbar im Mund und man kann sehr gut einzelne Noten schmecken. Schön langer Abgang, absolute keine Bitterkeit.....einfach wundervoll in jeder Hinsicht. Bisher der beste Springbank den ich hatte. Ist trotz seines Preises jeden Cent wert. Man muss hier die Handarbeit bei Springbank sehen.

General description

A complex tast, apple pie with a fruity taste and smokiness, and smooth, an almost completely meal and a little oily. Really worth a try!

General description

Great 18yo, but needs time and experience. Complex and rewarding.


Smooth nose with mild peat, apricots, coconut, banana, pineapple, malt and oatfield. With water and time some sherry cask fruits, but very slight.


Very oily,complex and strong, strong distillery character, spicy with much chilli, but also nutty, buttery, mouthfilling.


Nice warming and drying.

General description

Fresh and richly smelling Cambeltown master,almost same like 15y old but on the nose more fruity,brighter and less sweet.Smells a bit of peat over the malted barley,wood and vanilla,also strong pinapple,coconut,banana smell.On the palate chilly,salty with rich bitter sweet dark tone,sour,wood,vanilla,marzipan,sherry far behind,it's nice,complex and diversiform.The finish is long,mouth watering and bitter sweet.Overall for that value 15y old is better,richer and interesting option than 18y with more Springbank character.

General description

Impressively complex Campbeltown whisky, richly flavored and well-aged. You have to admire a whisky old enough to vote.
