    On the nose, cereals, fresh fruits, and peat. Citrus fruits first, then a whole basket of fruits. Slightly mineral. On the palate, we find everything that announces the nose, with a great touch, in an ultra fruity atmosphere. Finale on oysters, pineapple, always with a nice minerality. Persistent spices. Hyper long on white pepper and pineapple. What a nice surprise !

    Much less sherried than the new 10YO, but therefore also more natural in style. Despite the new label there's not a large difference from last year's release.
    • Nose
      A light dose of eggy sulphur upfront. Fatty papaya-like fruitiness. Peat and a little dough.
    • Taste
      Peach, pepper, peat, nutmeg and minerals.
    • Finish
      Peat, vanilla and peach.

    This is definitely an upgrade when compared to the 10yo. It's more delicate and more complete. This batch is having a little more peat than i think is perfect for a Springbank i guess this is actually normal for this distillery. Lately i compared 2 different batches of Springbank 10yo. One had a very strong peat influence, it took over the spirit, where the the other one had a way more subtle peat influence somewhere in the back.
    • Nose
      Immediately that typical Springbank nose! Sweet, woody and a delicate balance between bourbon and sherry wood. Sugared bread. Vanilla, smooth spices. There's quite a lot of peat in this batch on the first nose.
    • Taste
      Wow this is soft!! It is incredibly silky and a little fat. Butterscotch, vanilla and honey and peach. A slight hint of wood at the end. Also there is peat. But it's a lot less then what you would expect from the first nose. On the taste it is delicate and it is not covering the whole pallet.
    • Finish
      Slightly dry with a short bitter note. Wood and peach. Where the taste is not that peated as you would expect, the finish is as peated as you would expect.

    Very interesting whisky. The nose is misleading promising sweet sherried palate. However it is energizing with strong mineral and industrial feeling. Unusual single malt: vivid and punchy, quite complex and well-balanced, reasonably priced in addition.
    • Nose
      Light smoke, sweetness (some dried fruits: apples, raisins), marmalade, muesli, damp wood, damp wool, mineral notes, overall coastal feeling
    • Taste
      Spicy (ginger and white pepper), mineral and salty (Vichy water), industrial motives, slightly sweet (caramelized lemon peel), porridge, black olives, black tea (Assam)
    • Finish
      Rather long and dry, minerally, slightly oaky and nutty, leathery, some farmy notes
