Springbank 18 year Campbeltown Single Malt 750ml
Review Date: 07-13-2013
I was lucky enough to be able to taste the premier release of the Springbank 18 year old (Navy blue label with a Large "S" at the center) at the Whiskyfest in 2009. It was wonderfully complex with soft sherry, honeyed sea salt, rich grain and ginger bread with a beautifully long finish. I was able to secure one of the 1st release. But it soon disappeared. I then suddenly found the second release and quickly purchased two of them only to find the 2nd release was nowhere near the quality of the first release. It is still fairly good but the 15 year old is superior to it.

Nikka 15 Year "Yoichi" Old Japanese Single Malt Whisky 750ml
Review Date: 07-13-2013
If I was tasting this blind, I would have a little trouble distinguishing this release from the 15 year old Laphroaig when it was still around. The Nikka 15 year old has just a little more body to it. Classic peaty Islay tasting whisky from a place you wouldn't expect.
