  1. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The 10yo is pure Springbank essence, is concentrated and bottled distillery character and the liquid confirmation that Springbanks distillates don't even have to be left in the warehouse for too long.
    • Nose
      The scent of freshly squeezed lemon juice mixed with a grapefruit purée, lightly salted. Wonderfully fresh and mineral at the same time. Rain-wet pebbles, mortar, machine oil, plus an emerging note of curry spices.
    • Taste
      Pleasantly strong attack, which is less creamy than before (~2016 batches), but which nevertheless makes you think of Springbank. Salted tangerine slices, grapefruit, pineapple pieces. As in the nose, curry spices gain their place after a while with a focus on cardamom. Add pepper and the well-known and highly revered mineral note: salt water on pebbles. Later cocoa and milk coffee and always a spicy mineral fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Long finish, clearly mineral with a hint of peat smoke, but without losing the fruitiness.

    Let them chase their local barleys, as long as they leave this gem alone. The best allrounder with that perfect Springbank punch.

  3. Casketje scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Absolute stellar whisky - even in 2021 it's still the best price-quality ratio available from Springbank.

    I love Springbank 10. This one is totally spot on to me. I've been thinking about it since my couple of drams of it yesterday.
    Will be interesting to see how it goes with air as it is really soft and approachable now. Fruits - apples, tropical fruit. Coconut. Minerals. Touch of peat and dirt. So good.

  5. 3_243F6 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very good. It reminds me of SB12 Batch 23, but less complex.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Pretty dirty with some salt. Limes, lots of malt, rocks bombarded by waves, machine oils, honey, oranges, pineapples.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very oily. Vanilla, buttery biscuits, orange peels, machine oil, wet rocks, honey. Quite naked - good.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Machine oil, rocks wet with clean seawater, oranges, a little honey.

  6. Derbyshire_sipper scored this whisky 91 points Newbie

    Smell
    Honey, Oranges, pineapple, mineraly (is that even a word?) like wet rocks.

    Taste
    Waxy smooth, buttery shortbread. Burnt orange peel, creamy vanilla ice cream, bit of cinnamon too.

    Finish,
    Medium finish, similar to but its that twang of orange that lingers on.

    Oh its good. Incredibly easy to drink, so, so, so smooth.

  8. ZLako scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    N: Freshly squeezed lemon juice, malty notes, orange peel, fresh orchard fruits, a wee bit of honey, salty notes, fresh sea breeze, a tiny bit of spiciness coming through and a breath of smoke. Damn complex for 10 years.

    P: Creamy, oily, spicy, vanilla, caramel, sea salt, again those orchard fruits, orange peel, pineapple, grapefruit then milk chocolate and coffee.

    F: Long and pleasant with a hint of sea salt and a bit of smoke.
