IMO, cask taste was surpricingly strong for that young whisky and it had strong malt taste to me. Good indeed, I will give 8½ to it.
I finished my 15 year old and have started the next. My view has not changed about it, it is not very 'springbank' and poor value. I think it purely down to the amount of different stock springbank have to 'play' with for this bottling. New distilling starting about 15 years ago?
The 10 I have got wrong big time. My old bottle was okay but the latest bottling is excellent. Once I got past a 'corky' one we are left with one of the finest whiskies for £25. It is up there with the other great like Ardbeg 10 and Bruichladdie 10 (and the usual regulars like Lagavulin / Laphoig, HP and MaCallan). This I really like and recommend it, now why can't they do this with the 15?
