    No cowshed note, quite drinkable.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Beautifully fruity, also slightly sour citrus aromas. Hardly any smoke, a bit earthy with oak.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Some sweetness, lots of fruitiness. Spicy with oak.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Almost a long reverberation. More spicy than fruity, very little smoke. A bit dry at the back.

    A well made malt, a very interesting malt changing as the bottle contents disappear never to be seen again, opens up after 10 plus mins in the glass,
    • Nose
      85 85
      Malty, white fruit, friendly, vanilla, light sherry, sharp,
    • Taste
      87 87
      Spice very upfront, sour, buttery, light peat, vanilla,
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long to med finish, sour and bitter in a good way then comes a sweetness, dry, spice fades on the finish, spearmint ethanol,

    • Nose
      fruity. Scents of apples, pear and lemon. This batch doesn't have that typical spring bank farm smell. Malty, bit of an ammonia smell. Slightly Salty. Honey. Vanilla
    • Taste
      the palette has more of that recognizable springbank farm flavour. Malty, and certainly very fruity. Lychee, orange, pear, apple, lemon. Recognizable from the hazelburn fruitiness.
    • Finish
      nice and dirty. Dusty. Dry, peat, white pepper and peach and lychee.

  7. OJK scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Lemon and olive oil on freshly cooked fish, with sugar cane syrup and nougat, and a little sweet mustard and fresh mint. Just ten years old and such impressive complexity and balance.

  8. etwa77 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I’ll just list the not so good’s.. too fruity, too sweet.. too little dirt.. not enough smoke.. too thin and maaybe a little too alcoholic. it might also be too floral for my Springbank-taste (god forbid an 80’s Bowmore happening at Sb!)

    The rest is Scotch history!

    Nose.
    Lemon peel, orange peel, green grass, haystacks. Alcoholic sensations are evident. Some berry notes and fermented malt also appear.
    The 10 is more like an uncoated white paper than the 12cs/15/18. The flavours are the base of the whole Genting range. 10 can be found in 12/15/18.

    Palate.
    Cream and honey and a fleeting smokiness. A simple triple combination with a hint of "grape" to make up the most basic Genting. This is a wine for drinking with friends. It is "self-referential" and "communicative", but with only a few words of flavour that do not interrupt your conversation with your friend. Simple is good.

    Finish.
    Haystack and malt, some earthy and smoky notes.

  14. Joint86 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Not bad. For a basic 10 year release, it's even very good. The main advantage is the nose, taste is the weakest side, but the finish evens out the balance a little
    • Nose
      88 88
      citrus, vanilla, wet stone, cloves, a little cardboard
    • Taste
      85 85
      sweetness, hot pepper, slight sourness
      much simpler and poorer than the nose
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium, dry, spicy

  15. TKoolhaas scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Peat, leather, oak, vanilla, mango, earth

    Taste: Light peat, pineapple, mango, liché, banana, vanilla, anise

    Finish: grapefruit, light peat

    Nose 21.5, taste 21.5, finish 21.5, balance 21.5

  20. BruceLee scored this whisky 86 points Newbie

    Far more pronounced American oak/bourbon on this iteration (compared to 2020, which was much more distillate driven and imho stellar), this time with vanillas, which almost overwhelm the usual sb distillate. Dunnage aromas percolate to rescue. Not where it was though. Toffee, and touches of coffee this time. The finish of soot/petrol/peat/smoke is almost wholly absent now. Uptight, for a SB 10, needs water to open up.

  21. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very fruity, orchard fruits, toffee, very consistent and drinkable
