    Springer10 - a very neat Campbeltown Malt!
    Not very cheap - handicraft has its price!
    [Color] white wine;
    • Nose
      malty and sweet, slightly aromatic smoke, some oak;
    • Taste
      strong spicy salty onset, noticeable oak spiciness, earthy (moss), oily, slightly bitter note;
    • Finish
      long, warm finish; salty finale;

    n: lactic acidity, lemon yoghurt,, vanilla , salt, smoke, soot and ashes.
        I keep this short but the nose is lovely.
    t:  great powerful arrival. this bottling is the essence of springbank.
        rather loud smoke with soot and ashes again. the lactic notes are weaker on the
        palate, lemons, earth and many more lovely dirty notes that I cannot pin down.
    f: long, dry, still lots of ashes, perhaps a little liquorice.
    comments: even better than previous batches and a true bang for your buck.

    Intense

    Springbank 10 is a Campbeltown classic, right? This is not my first, but it is the most recent bottling that I was able to get my hands on (thanks, Pat!). From 2015. The Springbank 10 was my first encounter with this distillery way back when. I gladly return.

    The nose is a nice mix of tropical fruit and vanilla here and peat, jute and sea salt there. Wonderfully waxy.

    On the palate, it is immediately spicy and sweet. Nice development of smoke. Intense. The spices on duty are nutmeg, ginger and a pinch of chili. Soft tannins, bit of salt. Again, quite waxy.

    The finish is feisty and medium long, in which the sweetness is stalked by the salt, only to die a sweet death in the end.

    Springbank 10 remains a little masterpiece and should be in every cabinet.
