  1. kramimatsimoto scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    A real nosing dram. Quite light at first, it turns into slightly darker aromas over time.
    Not my style in terms of taste.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Crisp, fresh nose with ripe apples, lots of vanilla, a hint of leather and herbs. Great nose!
    • Taste
      78 78
      Strong start, very spicy, lots of herbs, the previous freshness nose disappears. Slightly bitter
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish is intense and long-lasting, traversed by strong oak.

  2. Mr. D. scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This release is not just a classic, it is the standard of Scotch whisky; 10 years, 46% and the magic of Sprinbank craftsmen - this is the recipe for pleasure.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Complex, multifaceted, appetite-inducing; greets salty smoked with grill smoke; then fruity and creamy theme, apples, pears, peaches with a thick layer of whipped cream; some leather and spices; the freshness of the sea breeze; great.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Thick, oily; wood varnish, smoke and leather first; ripe pear and peach, but there are fewer fruity notes than in the aroma; they were replaced by spices and minerality; wet sea pebbles; a little oak, a little vanilla and toffee.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Dry, medium duration; fruits are gone, now pepper and oak bitterness; salinity; smoke from fruit woods completes the picture.

  4. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Excellent whisky, period. Concerning minerality and funky oiliness one of the best in that price range and at that age.
    Campbeltownian handcraft at its rustic best. Not for the uninitiated though, this Springbank might appear a tad austere at first to those who are used to either accessible, easy-drinking exBourbon malts or smoke monsters.

  6. The_Osprey scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Springbank 10. At Scotia Bar, Glasgow, March 2019 at a very good price. Aroma has some wax and paraffin, subtle esters. Taste is huge menthol up front, Halls Soothers, medicinal with soft peat and subtle paraffin. Definitely interesting with nice level of integrated smoke ... prickly salty boozy linger ... works well enough. 3.4/81

  7. Don Cassi scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Very fleshy mineral on the nose, with associations of puffed rice. In the background light fruity notes (apricot?), Which increasingly come to the fore. I can't find the alleged peat smoke, maybe the form of the day?

    Slightly sour in the mouth, then also subtle ash notes that indicate the smoke. Relatively mild, almost watery.

    Finally, in the finish, more pronounced ash, with light notes of wood and grain. Behind it again subtle fruit.
    Length: 4/10

    Standard that takes getting used to, but it is quite variable. The 12 year old cask strength, which I would also prefer, is more accessible.

    Grade: 2

  8. tribe scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    So if I have the courage to compare the old bottlings, I have to say that this one is no longer quite as qualitative. This one had more glue that was annoying to me. Didn't old. Malt and biscuits were good here too with the light smoke. But not that round

    One of the better 10 year old standards, here you get a good picture of what to expect at Springbank.
    • Nose
      Tart fruit, slightly nutty, almonds, some Bircher muesli, a spoonful of honey, slightly dirty, orange peel, overall rather creamy, some waffle biscuits, some chocolate in the background, very pleasant
    • Taste
      Creamy, dirty, sour, fruit, oranges, dark chocolate, chocolate, wafer biscuit, slightly nutty, also oak, woody on the palate, the second sip is spicier, the drinking strength does not seem thin

     I don’t know the 10yo like I feel I should, so I order a dram whilst in the Craft Beer Co. just before Christmas. The last time I enjoyed the 10yo was at the Cadenhead’s shop in Chiltern Street in December 2017 when I scored it an incredible 91 points! It sure was flying high that year.

    N: Smells of dry bonfire-smoked barley – as natural as you could ask for.
    T&F: Natural throughout.
    C: An uncomplicated tasty dram. How wonderful to see this available in a pub for the price of a pint.

  20. Bam scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    For me, one of the best standards that an 18yo can hardly keep up with. Multi-layered, balanced and simply delicious.
    • Nose
      Full, complex nose with vanilla and caramel. Many light fruits like green apples, pears, and especially peach. Some smoke behind it. Moist earth, hay. Carried by a pleasant oak note.
    • Taste
      Medium onset, oily mouthfeel. Strong vanilla and caramel again. A lemon next to the peach. The smoke on the palate is somewhat stronger than in the nose, nice oak flavor. Wet pebbles.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Now a lot of oak, dark and full, with noticeable smoke. Espresso, vanilla, and still the peach.

    Traditional production, craft presentation and superior 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 (no rough edges), this young Campbeltown malt combines well-integrated smoke, mild fruitiness and a touch of salt with a robust, substantial and chocolaty finish. It's simply one of the best young whiskies you can find in these days!

    Very good 10 year old Campbeltown whisky. Very complex and quite a chameleon. Keeps adding nuances with each sip and each dram but stays on the minerally sharp side.
    • Nose

      Sour apples, engine oil, flint chert dust, pickled ginger, pickled peaches, old paper. Vague sherry a layer down.

    Salted gummy bears with smoke. Ample Orangeat. Intensive but still round.

  29. wheatfield scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Light gold. Nose is fresh, meadow flowers (heather?), honeys, a kiss of the ocean. Mouth a touch sweet and honeyed, a touch salty and briney, a bit cutting. Fresh and focused. Some orange marmalade comes out. Good stuff!

  30. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    So heavy and thick, you can almost chew on it. What also stands out for me is that this is really different, unique, and a real enrichment next to your other Scotch single malts. A distillery to cherish.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The first scents directly draw you into the glass. Wow! Thick and meaty! It reminds me of roasted chicken or well-filled chicken soup, smoked ham, and barbecued meat with sweet and sour sauce. Hints of peat follow, definitely not coming from Islay, rather fruitier and sweeter. A smouldering fire after roasting some paprika’s, pineapple of honey-glazed chicken. The peat is accompanied by a combination of sweet pears and tropical fruits (mango, pineapple, unripe peaches and bananas). Before becoming too sweet, there are sour & salty herbal notes of green tea and soya sauce entering the nose. The interplay of the different layers is absolutely beautiful.
    • Taste
      91 91
      A lovely thick mouthfeel with a heavy palette containing ashy peat, peppery spices, briny saltiness and sweet & sour. We love it already! It is quite different from the nose with less fruit and more spices, in particular at the end of each sip. The development brings pepper and tabasco, but also more herbal notes of sweet paprika and rocket lettuce. There is a chalky, dusty trail in the background, which I find very Springbank-like. After a while the sweet fruitiness decides to join the party. I can be wrong, but at some moment I thought I even recognised bubblegum. The palate has a lovely complexity and incredible full character for such a relatively young whisky.

    Excellent lemonade citrus molt, simple, funny and sunny.
    • Nose
      Bright, fresh, the first wave - Soviet lemonade, something like Pinocchio, then wood, fruit and minerals, wet stones under the bright sun, everything is very consistent and well balanced - excellent.
    • Taste
      Wood, pepper burning, light bitterness, citrus notes, ginger are surprisingly fresh and invigorating.
    • Finish
      Orange peel, willow bark, sweetness mixed with bitterness - like sugar, light sourness.

    Spring bank 10YO 46% (WB 84439) 220318 sample 52 6cl half 1. Marzipan in the fragrance. Vanilla with a tropical edge. Wood, cardamom. Can you sniff for hours. I did not do it. Sharp, spicy. Then buttery soft, creamy, round and smooth - to grow back to faintly smoke / smoke. Turns out: that I had a bottle of it ((2016, empty after year) Turns out I'm pretty consistent in my taste notes, I really did not know - and I write about the same things, life can be so beautiful. Small pleasures, excellent glass of whisky, then and now.

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Hach, a familiar scent rises from my glass. The characteristic Springbank filthiness is present, closely followed by salty caramel sweets, freshly cut green apples, pears, lemons and sweet malt. In the background, a very delicate smoke flag is noticeable. Hints of herbs, delicate traces of red fruits, marzipan, mineral-maritime notes and a little spicy oak blend wonderfully harmoniously together. The alcohol (46%) is very involved. A nice introduction to the Springbank world.
    • Taste
      Strong-sweet start, freshly ground pepper prickles on the tip of the tongue. The texture of the malt is pleasantly soft and oily. The Springbank-dirtiness is back immediately, the nose in the nose still delicate smoke flags now noticeably more intense to advantage and flows into a light camp fire smoke. Light fruits, lemons, limescale, oranges, malt, vanilla, nuts, dark chocolate, spices (nutmeg?), Mineral maritime notes and spicy oak give the only 10 years old malt a remarkable complexity. The alcohol is very well integrated again. The palate is slightly drier.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, fruity-spicy and warm. With a decent pinch of pepper on the sparkling tongue tip, the finish starts. The vanilla sweetness and bright fruits (especially oranges) are gradually fading. With a light camp fire smoke, dark chocolate, mineral aromas and herbaceous-spicy notes of oak wood sounds of Springbank. On the palate remains a slight dryness.

  42. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Just great really. Whatever they do at Springbank is how it’s done right.
    • Nose
      Smoke and fruit – beautifully intertwined. Slightly cooling, with linseed oil and farmy notes – earth in a stable, manure? Nah, although the smoke morphs into something feinty at times. A sooty coal cellar perhaps. 
    • Taste
      Fresh and vibrant. Toffey and apples, honeyed biscuits and smoky citrus.
    • Finish
      Medium-long. Tannic limes, a touch of black forest fruit at the end.

    As already mentioned, the Springbank 10 will of course be good for me. But in order to fake a certain neutrality, I would like to stress that Springbank is also able to fill whiskys that do not convince me - in recent years these were the special bottlings Hazelburn 9 Barolo, as well as Hazelburn 13 Oloroso and the Longrow Red 13 aus'm Malbecfass ... yes, call me crazy, but the Red was nothing to me
    • Nose
      Very complex for the age. Sweet fruit notes of raisins, pears and dried banana are nicely accompanied by distinct vanilla flavors. Still very discreet, the light smoke and the malt keep in the background. After some time, a slight honey smell develops.
    • Taste
      The fruit is somewhat in the background. It gets earthy-spicy. The oak, as well as the malt kick forward and are supported by cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, nutmeg. The smoke is more present on the palate. Overall, a very round impression - also because the Springbank 10 is beautifully distributed oily.
    • Finish
      Nice intense finish - again earthy, spicy and gently smoky. But also light salt notes are noticeable - these emphasize the existing sweetness of honey and caramel.

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

    Among the young beginner whiskys from the rougher climes (Bunnahabhain 12y, Benromach 10y 100 Proof, etc.) the Springbank can be found in the spicy-bitter corner. Anyway, a strong, clear statement that makes you want more from this distillery ...
    • Nose
      The entry into the Springbank world: A little hospital, light phenol, salt, seaweed, the alcohol makes itself felt in the form of a cool breeze.
    • Taste
      As comes the concentrated salt spray in the mouth, spicy bitterness is just as wide as a not unpleasant sharpness. Light tadpole flavor. At the first key, the salt covers the slight phenolic smokiness and the notes of ripe algae.
    • Finish
      A mid-length finish gives off the scent and taste of a sea-rich seashore.

    I'm pleasantly surprised by this whisky even without having discovered the smoke so often described. It is intense, powerful and caresses nose and palate with pleasant sweetness and varied aromas. He seems independent and seems to want to stand out from the crowd. I look forward to more bottlings from the House Springbank - 01.04.2017

    A little like Ledaig 10 reminds me of that acidity, but Springbank is much sweeter and less peat. Around and around good drinks at a reasonable price.
    • Nose
      Some acidity along with the honey sweetness, fruit (lemons, oranges, kiwi), pepper, earthquakes, sea salty and some peat.
    • Taste
      At first try a great earthy sweet, sweet wood, tea, apples, combined with spiciness, salt and a little peat

    The Springbank 10 is pretty much the most complex and powerful whisky of this age group, which I've come across so far. Sure, about 40 EUR for a ten-year whisky is not a bargain, but you get for a very traditional and arty sophisticated whisky from a distillery, in which the malting of the barley until the labels are made everything on site from one source.
    • Nose
      Sour fruit notes, sweet vanilla, smell of softened driftwood from the beach, on which still sand and salt and a few algae stick. I also feel a very slight metallic note. The light smoke pushes forward relatively late
    • Taste
      grassy, ​​salty, complex, fruity, malty, a nice chilli, warming, it runs down the esophagus.
    • Finish
      In the fairly long finish I have again a sweet grass and acid fruits and the mild smoke that lasts the longest

    Doesn't need water, just sip and enjoy.

    The first bottle I bought blind from the local after a rather tiring end of a first whisky-autumn. Made me realize again why I was doing this, just amazing quality: though it is more expensive than some, I can honestly say it is one of the best price-quality-ratios there are at the moment. In my experience the current quality of their distillate is of quite uniquely high standard. No colorant, chill filtration nor under 46% volumes, no NASs, marketing frenzy or other bullshit, just what I am willing to pay for: quality malt whisky.

  80. Pyromann scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Whisky with an ambiguous character that combines fruit sweetness, grass to earthy character and a bit of smoky peat from Islay. To me, however, it is totally insignificant and I do not mind the sharpness. I did not feel very impressed, HP 12 was better.
    • Nose
      The intensity is rather average, but the slightly oversized fruit appears, but it is more of a grassy character - a long-cut, damp, scorched to dull grass. A more terrible character. Then, a very weak Islay emerges - smell and coal.
    • Taste
      Grass and fruit. The taste is creamy and oily, but sharper and occasionally bite. Back in the background, weak Islay - coal and smell.
    • Finish
      Rather longer, woody. Scorched to dull grass.

Oak barrels, magnesium tablets, graphite lubricants, grapefruit steaks, subtle fruity notes that will become clearer and more exotic over time (passion fruit, pineapple) finish: bitter, tingling, dry, slightly smoky, oak becomes clearer, some cereals Comments: (No / very little water) initially looks young with little sense of touch, but not immature, gradually the malt becomes more "substantial", harder. "Original, crafty, straightforward, honest", great as well as the smoke is involved, I think of a engine room of a diesel ship on the sea. I do not remember a malt that is so mineral. Behind the great caramel sweetness with interesting-subtle fruitiness. Nice to be able to get something for relatively little money.

    He smells great, mild, fruity, reminds me of a Laddie Ten, feels a hint of smoke, very pleasant. I notice now only the oily streaks that run down the glass, probably rather untypical for a young 10s. A first sip shows me why Springbank is one of the most popular distilleries. Fruity, oak, marzipan, spices. By no means alcoholic he stays pleasant long on tongue and palate. Amazingly soft and round for his age. Great!

    By Serge Valentin

    Springbank 10 yo (46%, OB, +/-2015)  That’s right, a contemporary bottle for a change. Colour: straw. Nose: this baby didn’t benefit from some long bottle ageing/resting, obviously, so it’s still got a few rougher edges, but the similarities are totally astounding. I do not know of any other distillery that managed to keep and cherish its DNA this well, beyond back stories about wrong casks and such. So it’s obviously a little simpler, but the core is there. Limestone, soot, bitter herbs, paraffin (which can be a flaw but not here), beach sand, these rubbery touches that are so funny in Springbank… In short, love this too. And it’s cheaper ;-). Mouth: don’t they push the smoke these days? Because I find this baby very smoky. All the rest is perfect as well. Lemons, limes, bitter herbs, soot, wax, you name them. I’m very fond of this style, but that’s no secret. I think any whisky club in the world should erect a statue to the glory of Springbank. Finish: sadly. Comments: this is refreshingly void of any vulgar oak influence. But they could mature Springbank in plastic tanks, would that be allowed, that would work as well. Exceptional spirit-driven whisky. I’m sad I’m publishing this in 2016, it could have been a strong contender to some kind of Best Bang For Your Buck Award 2015. But one last thing, this is no commercial ‘consensual’ whisky, so try a sample or something before you rush out and buy a bottle. Unless you already know that Springbank can be glorious. SGP:452 - 91 points.

    Subtle, classic dram!

    Despite having tried a lot of older, more expensive or sought after drams, this has to be one of the all time classic "daily drams". The price/performance is very high (like Lagavulin 16 or Talisker 10 imho). The saltiness and leather notes are fantastic.

    For me young Springbank is a must have!

    • Nose
       A typical mineral smell followed by something like the shire smell, fertilizer, coal, balanced peat, and a wonderful malt smell; in the second time it gets toward notes of dried fruits, liquorice and finally gasoline.
    • Taste
      Honey and coal, malt and peat, marshmallow and brine, mellow apple and gasoline, a continuous roller coaster; then a very soft spicy note composed by cardamom and pink pepper.

    Best 10yo I tried so far, it is very nicely balanced. As mentioned by others, adding water does wonders for this quite young fellow. The nose is challenging, I got salty sweet spicy notes, definitely cinnamon and some smoke very far in the back.

    The arrival is vanilla sweet (especially after adding sufficient water), then it develops to a more spicy nutmeg note with some pepper and more saltiness.

    Finish is quite long, smoke comes back a bit and the peppery note lasts through the whole finish.

    This is really a STUNNING malt!

    The only malt I bought a second botlle of so far for enjoyment guarantee later! The thing is that it's not exeptionally in comparison to others, but it is with others in it's price range! And it's very consistent in nose/taste/finish performance, great balance. Great BFYB whisky.

    It's got some tropical peatyness over it and a smooth oily mouth feel. Only thing is that in my opinion quite a lot of water has to be added to take off the peppery punch you otherwise get, beware of this if you get to taste it! But no harm is done by the water, it makes it a delightful dram!

    2011 bottling

    Nose: A fruity and creamy nose, with a little peat smoke and quite some heat and mineral acidity.

    Taste: again the cream and fruit from the nose (oranges and strawberries), some peat and quite peppery.

    Finish: a medium aftertaste with spices, some nuttiness and medicinality. Pretty dry.

    An age of 12 years would probably be better for this standard bottling of Springbank (works perfectly in the cask strength as well), as the current experience (but mainly the nose) could do with a little less heat.

  127. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Quite a little character with a rich tradition. Fruity sweetness, a little bit of salt, deliciously hot and pleasantly smoky. Quite complex for a ten year-old.
    • Nose
      Soft and sweet peat smoke are balanced by citrus and vanilla. Adding water is like opening a spice drawer and there's a leftover of dried sausage hidden in it somewhere. Among the spices are nutmeg, clove and some cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Spices are everywhere ! Pepper shakes you awake. I'm thinking of a chili preserved in vinegar. With water it gets a bit sweeter. Vanilla and raisins. At the end there's a little bit of sea salt on the tongue. Three primary tastes in one dram: sweet, tangy and salt.
    • Finish
      Pepper and salt are struggling for attention. And the third dog ? Sweetness of raisins. 

  128. p4blo did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A great entry level whisky.
    • Nose
      Tons of spices, pepper and ginger dominate here. Behing that there is a nice palette of citrus fruits and a bit of smokiness. A great nose.
    • Taste
      Very sweet and contrasting with the nose. Peaches, oranges and apples. A tiny hint of smoke, mouthwarming and spicy.
    • Finish
      Dry, long and simply very good.

  130. Angelos scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    For 10 years, this one offers a lot!
    • Nose
      Fruity peat and a sour note (vinegar), citrus and some oranges, vanilla, peaches, baked pineapple
    • Taste
      Bit sour and briny, again fruity peat, hints of cinnamon and mint, exotic character again... some mango and peaches
    • Finish
      Medium to Long with some kind of Ardbeg sweetness, cinnamon and mild oak

  131. Jimjam scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I’ve never tasted anything like this before. Salt, sweet, sour and bitter notes all together in one place! Challenging, very characterful and interesting. I suspect this will reward repeat visits. Probably not one to give a whisky first-timer though.
    • Nose
      Brine, phenols, gorse flowers, citrus, spicy notes, slightest tinge of sweet amaretto, a sourness too. Blimey. Unusual mix here, and character. Slowly relaxes and opens up. Pepper. Brine holding through. Adding water releases some citrus fruit
    • Taste
      Dry, full, some smoke, background fruit in the middle, spice, drying again hard toward the end
    • Finish
      Long, dry, a bitter wood tang, finishing in smoke

  132. zinaf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This is just a stunner whisky. It certainly has so much to offer at this young age. I fell in love from the first sniff from the bottle. No water for me, this aspirin puts out of balance in my opinion. It is just a drinking whisky. Great stuff.

    SGP: 545
    • Nose
      Sweetness with gentle peat. Toffee; Apricots; hints of cut grass

      water - just a few drops - some crashed aspirin came up. Then this think fruitiness layered with peat. Lovely.
    • Taste
      Mouth coating. Great body; Sweet at first; A bit of with some gentle peat; then ripe fruits. 

      water - not much change, perhaps a dash of salt.
    • Finish
      medium; sweet, gentle peat, and just a hint of cedar box

    Oily texture, slightly fruity, spicy with pepper.

  136. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A great standard whisky from Springbank.
    • Nose
      Lots of barley and oak. And a flowery scent as well.
    • Taste
      Good peppery attack on the palette. The taste is malty and oaky.
    • Finish
      Long finish, and there is even more wood here.
