Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma speaks to Sherry influence and proper age with notes of book leather, old hemp ropes, and a surprising amount of exotic fruits from passion fruit and mango to guava, warm toffee pudding, and sea spray.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile is equally complex with peach cobbler and marzipan over more leather and toffee crumble with walnuts by the seashore.
The finish seems to last forever with a sweet, creamy praline note.

Many of the notes on the Flavor Spiral are right on point except I also get a lot of strawberry shortcake on the nose. Full bodied and very complex. Will not disappoint I would definitely recommend.
Highly enjoyable. Nose is apple-pear, reminiscent of a California white wine.. In the mouth, sweet fruit, oak and a hint of spice up front finishing with mild lemon salinity. Very smooth. I look forward to more in the future.
One of my favorites.
Very good, very smooth, a bit smoky with nice finish.
Favorite single malt.

Intriguing nose. Delicious, smoky, creamy dram. Has a smooth tree fruit flavor, strong smoke, some lovely spice and woodsiness. Salty, citrus lingering taste. Brilliant
Had expected somewhat another experience
Nose: apple or pear. Leather, then a little citrus I think. Subtle smokiness, phenols coming in. Wooden polish I think. After a while, loads of vanilla show up. Very complex
Palate: very very oaky. Almost taking all attention, but also hints of hot spices. Some burning.
Finish: more oak.
Conclusion: very interesting nose, but taste is disappointing. I’m not even sure if this could perhaps be a faulty bottle
I love springbank but the price and age don't add up here, go for the 12 or spring all the way for the 25.
Fruit and vanilla amongst that characteristic Spring bank funk.
I liked the fact that I was not completely overwhelmed with peat, but it was there without a doubt. Most islay whiskeys have peat as the mainstay, but this was a perfect match for those who don’t LOVE peat. Apart from that, it is dangerously smooth and easy to drink.
At first delicate nose, stronger after a while. Rich taste, very light peat. Long finish... very pleasant whisky, a little too expensive. I would be extremely happy if I got it for a present ;)
Smooth and peatty
Balanced all around
Delicious expression. The 18 is even better. Springbank is a favorite. Never compromising. Always very high quality.
Great balance between fruit, spice, and a hint of peat. Very enjoyable. This whisky can make for a dangerous night because it is that good. Nose: coconut, caramel, vanilla, fruit. Taste: fruit, sherry, butterscotch, soft peat, pepper, vanilla, a little creamy, spicy. Finish: medium length, sherry, fruit. Deliciousness!!!!
