    For its money outstanding! Of course you realize that this dram is not too complex and also not too old but I am very nice suprised by this dram and will try to have it in my collection forever! (45€ - 04/2016)
    • Nose
      For its age and money excellent! Decent smoke with some orange/lemon influence and no alcohol so quite good implemented!
    • Taste
      Quite sweet, some oak and the smoke is only decent compared to the nose! 
    • Finish
      Aso quite nice with honey sweetness running down your throat! Some bitterness and oak remain after some seconds.

    Best OB that is available for under 50 euros, must-buy. I find this 2015 version softer than that from 2013 everything is even more balanced.

    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.
