Another fine malt for a Havana, Springbank 15yo has an almost bewildering array of flavours: dark chocolate, figs, marzipan, brazil nuts and vanilla are just some of the notes on show. Absolutely top-class.

    Nose:  Toffee, natural caramel, pepper, vanilla, rich malty notes.  Whiff of woodsmoke, honey / syrup dried fruit.

    Palate:  Very sweet attack, followed with pepper, raisins, nuts. Full-bodied, very silky mouthfeel.

    A very good whisky. Full of dark flavours and long finish. Impossible to dislike this offering from Springbank.

    Sherried Springbank is one of my favourite things in the world, starting from the first bottle I ever bought from SMWS. I've bought a few years' worth of this 15, and while the comments are right that it differs from year to year, it's always been great value and sums up what I love about Springbank: sweet, nutty, rich in the mouth, with that faint hint of engine oil somewhere. The 10 is good but this is great.

    It's ok. It tastes a little bit like the cut the whisky a bit to early during distillation. So it's a nice mature whisky, with from a slightly blemished starting product. Whoopsie, better luck next time.

    I like this whisky! Looking at the tasting notes from TWE I definitely got the sweetness on the palate and the vanilla on the finish. But I also got a minty spiciness on the finish. Different from other whisky, and I like it!

    This is the response I got from Springbank's Ranald Watson regarding the lack of sherry character in the 15yo: The 15yo is always 100% olorosso sherry cask matured. I think the differences over the years have cropped up due to the ratio of fresh/refill casks, which can sometimes lean much further towards refill. However, the stock of whisky we have from 1998 onwards should be much more consistent and you will hopefully see a more obvious sherry influence from recent bottlings onwards.

    This is a great malt but I am not picking up the sherry notes. Especially where it is 100% sherry cask aging. My bottle was very peated (in a good way) with plenty of smoke. If I tasted this in a blind tasting I would have guessed this is an Islay. Great malt though!

    stunning. much more complex and balanced than the 10. dangerous in that once open, I don't want to stop drinking!

  • Tudval 15 December 2011

    The best 15 yo that I have tried. Balanced yet full of personality. I'd like to get a bottle, but in Canada it's so expensive at $137, it's actually more than a lot of older and also excellent malts.

  • MaltMuggle77 6 December 2011

    Absolutely brilliant. The extra 5 years over the Ten add many more layers of complexity. Delicious! I prefer it to the 18.

  • Sean 31 October 2011

    A beautiful malt whisky. There is a sweetness, balanced by fruit note, followed by cocoa on the finish. This is richer than the 10 year old, but both are brilliant adverts for scotch malt whisky. This site is good value too.

    The business. Lovely Springbank with a bit of fruit going on. One can't help but feel happy when drinking this :-)

    tried this in a bar recently. Nice comparison after drinking the Longrow cv and the Springbank 10. Sweetness for sure, but a pleasing balance. Very approachable and a suggestive depth.

    Wow, powerful spiciness, nice mouth feel with some good length. Feels like the ABV is higher than touted - in a good way. Smokier than I hoped for but, I kinda liked it after a few swigs. More pepper and malt than anything else. Time to break out a Greycliff!
