Following distillation, Spring bank 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky was matured for 15 years in European oak casks that were previously used to mature sherry. The whisky has an aroma of dark chocolate, Christmas cake, almonds, toffee and oak.
The rush of sweetness is a real surprise – on the front of the palate there are peach notes, raisin and perhaps red cherry. Then it’s all about that rich spice, along with the peat – a delicious abutment of pepper heat, bright allspice and rolling smoke. With water, it gets even sweeter and a little quieter, but still really tasty and mouth-filling.
