Dram Review: Springbank Single Malt Aged 15 Years (Circa Late 1970s – Early 1980s)

[46.0%・15 Years Old・Bottled Circa Late 1970s – Early 1980s・ Official Bottling・General Release]

Nose:

The vintage Springbank vibe has been well preserved and is very appealing as a result. Lovely presence of white fruits, and later on joined by notes of malt and cereal. A lingering but restrained lace of white floral note arriving late as traces of leathery and vegetative notes emerge.

Palate & Finish:

Lush mangoes and pineapples, with more orchard fruits merrily coming along, vaguely seasoned with pear nectar and passion fruit syrup.

A subtly malty finish that draws long with hint of dried mangoes.

Thoughts:

A darn good bottle in excellent condition, brilliant showing of tropical fruits.

☆☆ [Highly Recommended]
