    A quick note. Peatier and slightly less fruity than usual, but pretty good as SB10 often is.

      Peatier than usual for SB10, otherwise very typical.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Less peaty here but the peat is still there. Typical Campbeltown peat, grapefruit, citrus, minerality.
    • Finish

      No new impressions, decent length. A bit peatier than usual.

    Very nice, well rounded, intense and deep for a 10 yo. Better then most 15 or even 18 yo from other distilleries. Springbank definitely does a different and better job than the others. Love that batch. The nose could be better, but the taste and finish are just "pow" for a 10yo

      Dry Fruits, Peaches, Cherry, slightly honey sweet, little peat, the alcohol peaks a lil bit here and there. Not to deep and not evolving much in the glass but still round and nice. [87]
    • Taste

      First shortly the spices, also some pepper, then intense mid-dark fruits, cherry, peaches, more like a jam, nice integrated sweetness, hints of caramell and earth, salty minerals, then comes the chocolate in the mid palette. And it lasts and lasts, while an intense sweet-sour sweet spot in the middle of the tongue rests. Rich and intense, slightly oily. [93]
    • Finish
      92 92
      Dry fruits, chocolate first dark than milky, oak, spices, some earth, some honey and pepper, strawberry jam on the tongue...pretty long finish with depth and nice resolution. [92]

    I read a lot about this well hyped whisky. This bottle is quite hard to find in my country, and as I walked in a shop with a few bottles for 79$, I purchased 2 of them without tasting. I talked with the whisky-shop dealer about the spirit, and he did not really understand the hype, judging it as an ok 10-year-old scotch, but not as special.

    I totally agree with him: I was disappointed big time. Nothing special at all. Nor is it characteristic in a certain direction (sweet, tropical, peaty, briny), nor is it specially well balanced. It was just a boring whisky. Would I have tried it before the purchase, I would not have bought it for sure.

    I am not even able to describe what it smells or tastes like - because of the lack of a characteristic profile.
    Do I suffer from Covid?

    So it is an ok whisky, and I would drink a dram when offered.

    But the fuzz about Springbank 10 year is not understandable for me.

    Excellent whisky in all respects for its price category.

  7. SpeysideSteve scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Great dram, plenty of honey and toffee notes with the slightest hint of smoke coming through on the back of the pallet.

  8. holborndrinker scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Not bad for an easy drinker, but the price is starting to get silly - better bang for your buck from loads of other drams.
    • Nose
      Quite a dirty, funky nose, plenty of spice notes.
    • Taste
      Quite a chewy, fruity palate - citrus abounds.
    • Finish
      Short - not a great deal afterwards, except the citrus lingers a while.
