General description

Personally, this was a big let down. The 12 year is an all time favorite of mine. I hope the 15 would be also. For some reason the distillery cut the alcohol back from 56.5 on the 12yr, to 46 on the 15yr. It just seems to loose a lot of the intensity of flavors. I will stay with the 12 year.

General description

Rich and well rounded dram. Plenty of character, straying somewhat from the typical Campbeltown earthy/herby palate without losing the freshness. Very enjoyable.

Nose

A quite crisp fragrance. Fruity sweetness at first. Caramel and toffee. Peat builds.

Palate

Quite full and rich. There are notes of creamy fruit salad and more exotic fruit notes. Finishes with a waft of peat and spiced warmth leading into the finish.

Finish

Fairly long with a welcoming warmth.

General description

Wonderful complex and very peaty Springbank that keeps his secret and changes a lot.

Nose

Warm woodsmoke, vanilla, sea wind, salty sweet, blueberry jumping in, hints of marzipan.

Palate

Woody and deliciously smoky, fruity side but also a leathery, dusty, woody side. Roasted walnuts.

Finish

Medium strong, oily, vanilla and an astringent, drying finish.
