  4. Thermidor scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A very typical SB without heavy cask influence. Mostly on fruit with a side of leatheriness, citrus, and some medical tablets in the finish.

    Astonishing good this 10 yo Springbank - value for the money - had a bottle code 10/485
    • Nose
      Tropical fruits, citrusy, honey, ripe bananas, pineapples
    • Taste
      Oily, liquorice, leathery, salty, faint smoke, peppery, little sweetness - rather dry, little fruitiness
    • Finish
      Medium long, peppery, and really just a tad bitterness but doesn't hurt at all

  7. Stane scored this whisky 84 points Member Junior

    Surprisingly well structured and full bodied for a 10yo. Distinctive Campbeltown style, liked it a lot.

    Hint: I had a first taste of it right after opening the bottle - it was rather disappointing. After 3 months, I came back to it and wrote this review. As some other reviews suggest, consider giving it a bit of time. 
    • Nose
      Brine, complemented by sherry-sweetness, gentle peat smoke, a hint of herbs.
    • Taste
      Nice and thick texture. Surprising fruity sweetness at first, with a whiff of citrus. Then the sea saltiness and peat start to take over. Warming, but no unpleasant alcohol burn (tasting it neat, at 46%). 
    • Finish
      Sea salt and peat that linger longer than expected, along with subtle spice.

  8. Cicero did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    no standard soft-washed whisky
    but this tar-car tire-burnt lye pastry touch bothers me a bit
    • Nose
      burning rubber
      lemon caramelised in honey peppered with a sprig of rosemary
      getting fresher
      brackish water
    • Taste
      usual strong start
      Oak and this tar car tire flavor
      sweet-salty and a subtle smoke rising from behind the throat
    • Finish
      Oak and sweet and herbaceous

  10. Heritage-of-Hugo scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    An excellent combination with airdried, salted, natural matured Italian Parma Ham!!
    • Nose
      Sea breeze, some vanilla, beewax, some fresh citrus als well, peat.
    • Taste
      Waxy, thick and oily. Nicely peated (delicate), some pepper, vanilla, citrusa and boney. Brackish.
    • Finish
      Long, delicate, nice peatyness remains, pepper and citrus. Still some brackish sea breeze, lovely!
