Whisky Reviews for Springbank 10-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.86 points

  1. Johnnie Stumbler scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Nose: In a word, fresh. Pine oil, lemon rind, earthy peat (as opposed to oily), flint. It’s all very stripped back and hard. A bit of time to develop gives subtle buttery notes and some vanilla custard to round off the austerity.

    Palate: Lemon, salt, peat, rainwater, white pepper. Sounds horrific to some people but it works very well, if a little challenging. Gentle oak and a subtle, creamy sweetness follow before things get too strict.

    Finish: Long, stern and slightly bitter – like a snake deputy headteacher passed over for promotion. As you make your way through the glass, the finish gets spicier.

    Thoughts: Good mouthfeel, well constructed, layered – there’s real quality here. It’s not too hard on the wallet either ; you can currently get this for around £40, putting it into Ardbeg 10 territory, as far as entry-level bottlings go.
