Traditional production, craft presentation and outstanding quality - it's hard not to like Springbank malts. Complex, dense and ever-changing, the nose is truly a chameleon. Gentle peatiness, crisp apples and bitter herbs harmonize with sweet malt, old leather and mineral-earthy notes. Tasting strong, aromatic and spirit-driven (few rough edges), this young Campbeltown whisky combines well-integrated smoke, mild fruitiness and hints of salt with a robust, substantial and chocolaty finish. It's simply one of the best 10-year-old Single Malts from Scotland!

Pale gold
Nose

Green apple, grass, lemon, hints of smoke, salted fudge, minerals, some "farming Springbank" smell is going on.

Taste

The farming smell/taste keeps on going, some smoke, lemon, minerals, salt, some spices.

Finish

Medium to long. Oak, smoke and Springbank farm.

Comments

It is so simple to bottle a great whisky at 10 years. This is a substantial craft presetation. Everything is very well intermeshed, the citrus fruit, the Springbank farm and the mineral smoke.

Concerning price/performance ratio: 10/10

Nose

Der Einstieg in die Springbankwelt: Etwas Krankenhaus, leichtes Phenol, Salz, Seetang, der Alkohol macht sich in Form einer kühlen Brise bemerkbar.

Taste

Da kommt die geballte Salzgischt in den Mund, würzige Bitterkeit macht sich ebenso breit wie eine nicht unangenehme Schärfe. Das Salz überdeckt beim ersten Taste die leichte phenolische Rauchigkeit und die Noten (über)reifer Algen.

Finish

Ein mittellanger Abgang lässt den Duft und Geschmack eines seetangreichen Meeresstrandes nachwirken.

Comments

Unter den jungen Einsteigerwhiskys aus den rauheren Gefilden (Bunnahabhain 12y, Benromach 10y 100 Proof u.ä.) ist der Springbank in der würzig-bitteren Ecke zu finden. Jedenfalls ein starkes, eindeutiges Statement, das Lust auf mehr aus dieser Brennerei macht ...
