Whisky Reviews for Springbank 10-year-old

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.95 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    N- Ashier at sphere with coastal, chocolate and malt floor underlay. Tangy honey, green apple yoghurt, rock salts, obvious boiled herbs and burnt angelica root. Marginally less fruits compare to 2017 with more peat and charred notes come into play. (93/23)

    P- Explosive and energetic, earl grey, orange oil, peppery liquorice candy and immensely spicy, which is just perfect for Springbank. Direct and full mouth coat with light hint of decay or over-ripe fruit note linger. (93/23)

    F- Medium-long, nutty, honey, spicy umami Togorashi Mix, broad and lengthy as it capable of. (91/22)

    B/B- 92/23

    Cereal- 2, Fruity- 3, Floral- 2, Peaty- 1, Fienty- 2, Sulphury- 0, Woody- 3, Winery- 2, Spicy- 3

    Really nice and malty, but this batch turns bitter on the backend. If it wasn't for the bitterness I would have purchased a case.

    21 22 21 22 86 - a freshly open bottle! slight nagging in the nose, tasty and drinkable, good level!

    21 20 21 20 82 - after a short sludge - young for his years, subsides in taste, it is good that at least there is an aftertaste ... difficult for drinking every day, no, of course he is not bad, but ....
