  1. swk27844 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    If this whisky is “just” a whisky from the core range, then you can only appreciate this. What a taste sensation. Almost everything is there. I like!
    • Nose
      85 85
      Yellow fruits; apricot, peach, but also vanilla, very light peat and pepper to finish.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Nice balance between a very light peat and a fruit. Mango, papaya, vanilla, white grapes, slightly spicy and peat with sea salt and a little bit of leather. Gentle character. Flavors are not predominant but nicely balanced.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Nice long finish, especially for a whisky at only 46%. Lingers for a long time and the finish changes with something of a bitter note.

    In the glass of Springbank 10, in 2020 still the entry-level whisky from Springbank. Bottled with 46% ABV, you can still get it this year for around 45 €. A purchase is definitely worth it!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Ahh, the typical dirty note of Springbank, embedded in ripe stone fruits such as peach, apricot, mirabelle plum. The whisky looks really juicy in the glass and its smell seems more mature than its age suggests. Fruity, gentle peat smoke and salty caramel invite you to take a first sip. So it's fun!
    • Taste
      90 90
      Oily, salty caramel, almonds, peanut butter, fruity compote with star anise and cinnamon, blood orange, papaya. A light oak spice with gentle peat and a honey-like sweetness over all the aromas, which holds the aromas together like a glaze. Is it really only ten years old?
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to long finish, peaty and salty caramel, nuts, a little mint, orange and again that wonderful sweetness. This bottling really impresses in all disciplines.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Still one of the absolute winners in its price class. This particular version has something that reminds me of Highland Park. Its style is a bit heavier than the 2017 (17/328) version.
    • Nose
      Apple, vanilla, malt, peat smoke and peach. Later leather.
    • Taste
      Apple, vanilla cookie, peat ash, leather and peach. Waxy profile.
    • Finish
      Chocolate, cookie, peat ash, apple, honey and leather.

  4. Saltmark scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Appears a bit youngish and sharp at the beginning. Faint fruity aromas mix with oaky bitterness.
    A few months after having opened the bottle and left it with a filling level of about two thirds a very pleasant pear aroma has developed. Very intensive in the nose and taste. Great experience.
    Other Springbank 10 bottles opened at the same time for comparison have not developed in this direction.

  9. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Medium peat smoke, under it light fruits (peach or apricot)
    • Taste
      Open with fresh fruit sweetness(peach, apricot, sweet apple at once), continue with simple peaty smokiness
    • Finish
      Long smokey finish

    You have to love your Springbank 10. Each and every batch I tried was enjoyable so far. This one is no exception. Probably a tad bit sweeter this time. Works well for me.
