  1. 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.

    One of the most expressive and independent standards on the market. This batch is a bit too sweet and fruity for me, but still great.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Quite fruity, but absolutely Springbank typically mineral. Very light smoke, chalk, salt, earth, apricot, apple, orange, a little lemon, with vanilla.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Oily, with a pleasant alcohol strength. Honey, light smoke, salt, olive oil, rock, almond, citrus.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long, slightly salty, smoky and quite sweet.

  7. Saltmark scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    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.

    • Nose

    • Taste
      Open with fresh fruit sweetness(peach, apricot, sweet apple at once), continue with simple peaty smokiness
    • Finish
      Long smokey finish

  13. grinface scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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.

  14. LoverCop1989 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Great price / performance ratio. Very complex and powerful. In the finish it is a bit too bitter for me. But the aroma and taste can shine all the more. Great drop and worth buying regularly.
    • Nose
      88 88
      light smoke, sweet, fruity (grape, peach, mango), oak, light spice (including nutmeg), very light sherry note, very little maritime notes, wild herbs
    • Taste
      87 87
      strong spicy start, fruity, sweet, a lot of oak, wild herbs, some malt, stronger maritime notes than the aroma, very light smoke, nutty
    • Finish
      84 84
      long, tart, spicy, slightly stronger smoke, malty, oak, slightly salty

    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.

  21. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    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.

  23. Casketje scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This is the first time I have opened a bottle of the Springbank 10 and I have to say: pretty spectacular for a 10 year old at 46%. Probably the best BFYB single malt out there today.

    Bravo! (88)
    • Nose
      The aroma of citruses, oranges dominate, spices, salty dough, vanilla, chocolate dust ... cool freshness. Cool, standing there appeared a farm in an orange grove ... ice cream with spiced milk (22)
    • Taste
      Rounded, oily, spicy, citrus (22)
    • Finish
      The finish is spicy, zest, mineral water, cream, vanilla and not much wood ... radishes and toothpaste (22)
