    A more sour 10-yo than the 'two later versions'. More subtle. It took me a while, because I enjoy strong and punchy SB so much, but I started to appreciate it as the bottle got more empty. A blind tasting confirmed this is just an excellent SB expression. Different from later 10-yo bottlings, but still quite good.

    1575) Springbank, 10YO (Early Y2K release)
    SB#4, Beige Label Springbank prior to 2006. Thanks a good friend on sharing this not so easily find stuff. So how was a Springbank 10YO back 21years ago, I must say that their the Springbank 10YO of 2010s releases were very very good.
    • Nose
      N- Despite being well oxidized, the penetrating zest still in the air to tease and awake your senses. Caramelized citrus over burning leaf, grassy with classic touch of rust and smoke green tea. Subtle bourbon notes with distillates shines on the name of Springbank. Get more floral over times, but seems lack the alluring scents of coastal. (87/21)
    • Taste
      P- Boiled spices with rock candy and bunches of whole citrus. Gentle, liquorice drops candy follow by creamy and dry leaf lingers. (87/21)
    • Finish
      F- Medium-long, love the waxy feel over the earthy herbs and bitter edge. With thick spicy smokes that stays at the back palate. (89/22)

      B/B- 87/21

      Weighted Rate- 86pt, worth to get a +1 on hard to find.

    Classic Spring.
    Coals, green apple, wax, honey, a drop of varnish.
    As always perfect under the straw.

  8. djmaxliving scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Nose - Green apple, cinema popcorn, slightly baked red apple, mint, eucalyptus, ripen pear, green pineapple & green pine leaves. Mixed between ripe and unripe. Hint of smoke heather in the back.

    Mouth - Oak, spice, green apple, ginger, smoke, pine, slight sweetness.

    Finish - Rather long, smoke, pine leaves.

    Thoughts - Quite a complex whisky, good nose and taste, different from most 10 year old whisky, I have tried before.
