Whisky Review: Springbank 15 Rum Wood
With runs of just 9000 bottles, the Springbank 15 Rum Wood, like most other Springbank, tends to sell out instantly. This was distilled in December 2003, and bottled in August 2019 from first-fill rum barrels. It also has an OB back label printed in Japanese, which is somewhat unusual, and means they allocated quite a good number of these to the Japan market.
Springbank 15 Rum Wood / 51% / $150
- Color: amber (0.7)
- Nose: sweet honey, guava, pineapple, peat, and ocean spray
- Taste: funky SB dunnage warehouse, earthy peat, tropical fruit salad
- Finish: honey drizzled over rich cheese, long
I love the higher ABV of this, 51% is huge compared to 46%! This is delicious, but the Springbank hype train is pretty strong so be prepared to pay some insane markup to get your hands on a bottle.
