The nose on this reminds me of vanilla bean ice cream, with a hint of smoke. The palate is rich and spicy like a typical Springbank expression, there are hints of sherry and peat. There is a bit of smoke/peat on the finish, medium finish but nicely ballanced. If you like Springbank, then this is a must try. It tastes a lot like the original Springbank 10/15 but with a campfire style taste to it. I enjoyed this expression.

The nose is a lot like the 10yr, orange spice. The palate of this one is really smooth but some of the spice that exists in the 10 yr seems to have faded away. The finish is light with a little peat. I liked this one but why buy it when it’s actually not as good as the 10 yr bottle which is nearly half of the price? This one seems smoother but less complex than the 10 yr. Save your money and buy the 10.
