Nose

A lot of tropical fruit. Very much more than the previous bottling with the older labels. Also, the typical dunnage warehouse, earthy, salty SB tones, also some peat in the background. Amazing nose

Taste

Lovely tropical fruits, salt, earth, oily, some chocolate

Finish

Medium long, not bitter, not drying. Waves of peaty fruit slowly die on the back of the tongue.

Comments

Surprisingly different than the older label bottlings. I was skeptic at first after the hype that started with Serge's review. But this actually is really, really good. The tropical fruit really differentiates this from the older bottlings. I love it.

Nose:


This is much better then the older Springbank 10's, very much like Bowmore 2001 vintages. Tropical fruit, peat and some dried fruit from the sherry casks.


Taste:

Very nice, oily, again very fruity and peated


Finish:

Not very long, but quiet complex for a 10y old.


Total score:

90, 90, 90

Very nice

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Apple, peach, vanilla, peat, pineapple, banana and caramel.

Taste

A very ashy kind of peat. Apple and peach.

Finish

A marshmallow sweetness which is not very common for Springbank. Dry peat.

Comments

Compared it to an older version from 2013. Clearly a much sweeter sherry influence and also the more ashy kind of peat stands out. Less of that typical fatty Springbank profile and less peppery. 

Still a great bang-for-your-buck entry level whisky, but the 90+ scores are too much for me.

Excellent! All the markers you expect from a typical Springbank, such as farmy notes, good fermentation, traces of peat, coastal notes, a malty core with enough citric fruits to lift it: a good dose of mandarins and mango, both on the nose and palate. With the typical fizziness in the finish. Comments: more towards exotic fruits than previous releases. Another improvement, the only standard bottling which improves year by year! At least for me. Best value for my money
