Springbank 15

Country: Scotland

Region: Campbeltown

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 46%

Score: 92 Points

This expression is 100% sherry cask, with a mix of first, second, and third fill casks. The nose is exactly what you’d expect — mild smoke and brine with a hint of pepper. The taste is rich, oily, and peppery with a nice brininess and a kiss of smoke, along with the usual Springbank saltiness on the tip of the tongue. The finish has long, lingering spices and brine with touches of smoke and lemony tartness. A splash of water amps up the tartness and fruity notes.
