Nose: Mild peat & Sherry - along with unique notes such as Hazelnut, Alka-Seltzer & something along the lines of struck matches. Slightly waxy and quite mineral with a faint coastal whiff...

Mouth: Along the same lines as the nose, but not as sweet as suggested. Very round. Zesty and nutty, with bitter herbs. Medium body.

Finish: Fairly long - lemony, nutty with hints of peat. Some juniper & orange.

Probably better off getting the 12yo if you can find it. Not the peaty/salty Springbank notes you might expect.

Thanks for that closing comment. I've always had the impression that the 15 is not the Springbank for me, but I think this is the first time I've see anyone simply state it so clearly.
