  1. Odessit did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Serge Valentin says:

    Springbank 10 yo '100 proof' (57%, OB, +/-2010) Five stars The version at 46% is superb, let’s see what gives with 11 extra-degrees. Colour: pale straw. Nose: well, it’s Springbank. Oily, fresh, coastal, flinty, slightly farmy, grassy, lemony, porridgy… In short, big. With water: a fisherman’s boat early in the morning after a night of fishing. Also beer, porridge and wet clothes or sheep (right, wool). Aspirin tablets. Mouth (neat): excellent, powerful, lemony, mentholated, zesty and riesling-esque. Quite some grain as well, raw barley, pepper, even a little wasabi or horseradish. More uncompromising than some neighbours from Islay’s south coast. With water: perfect, waxy, flinty and lemony. Finish: long, zesty ad oomphy. Very elegant. Comments: last time we chatted with MM compadre Charlie MacLean I asked him which distillery was closest to ‘old style’ Highlands ala Old Clynelish in his view. ‘Springbank’, he replied. Unsurprisingly, he was right. When this make will be 20 years old it’ll be a crushing winner. Oh, and what an amazing improvement on the older versions of the 100 proof (circa 2004)!!! SGP:373 - 90 points.

    A good one to buy instead of just sample, because it got better and better every time I revisited the bottle.

  5. alectron scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Not a bad whisky by any means, I guess I`m just not that fond of the
    overly flint-y & dry young Springbank style of late...

    Transferring previous Note (2012.01.08) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      flinty, grapes/fresh +, chalk -, malt-drops, vanilla, burnt almonds, hay/horse manure, peach, leather (79)
    • Taste
      quite spirity, bourbon vanilla, spices & wood, mineral/flints,  (78)
    • Finish
      more flints & fruity sweetness seems more developed & works somewhat well with the gravel/flint notes. (82)

  6. Alex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    ...this dram is getting better and better (second glass), now it`s worth a solid 90 points (before I had it on 89). So vibrant and fresh. No sulphur at all, that was disturbing in the 15yo.

  7. Alex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Excellent dram, clean and straight, enough sweetness, surprisingly rich and complex for a 10yo. Neat much nicer than dilluted.

    Very recommended.
    • Nose
      Subtle peat, honey, malty notes, dried fruits, sweet, clean, overal more on the sweet side.

      with water: more spicy, more medicinal, herbal
    • Taste
      sweet start, nice oily, quite rich, lemons and kumquats, barley sugar. Little peat smoke in the background, medicinal touch. Yummie.

      with water: spicier, flower pepper (makes the tongue sleepy), less complex, better neat!
    • Finish
      Very long, warming, spicy, sweet-bitter, zesty, tickles nicely for a long time.
