Whisky Reviews for Springbank 10-year-old
2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.60 points
- Raisins and cinnamon cookies on the nose, also (it's hard to describe) a smell of old wooden home. The moment this whisky excels is when you take a sip - it's very oily and not alcoholic at all, after a while it evolves into vanilla cake and maybe a warm weird soup or old wooden furniture? Totally worth the money, you have to try it yourself.
- Springbank 10 ... despite drinking whisky for the last dozen years (several bottles of SB12, 15, green, Longrow 18 etc) this is my first SB10. I'm not going to repeat the superlatives and descriptions you can read elsewhere.
Reminds me of a bourbon cask Irish Whisky, minimum 12 years - Yellowspot maybe. This SB10 is a perfect example of a simple thing done VERY well (instead of exotic finishes, limited editions and marketing bullshit)
Very creamy & floral and quite simple (in a good way) - I can't detect ANY smoke or peat, nor any sherry influence. If you want complexity get a bottle of SB 12 - but not the 15 unless you prefer sherry in your whisky.
For £38 this should be on every whisky lover's ready-to-drink shelf.
