    Springbank 10 yo
    (46%, OB 2008, batch 08/82, 35cl)

    Nose: this version clearly shares the same basic elements, but the end result is less appealing. Still some tangerine, but it misses the sparkling freshness. Lots of strawberries with cream, quite spectacular. A bit more wine influence I would say, with dried fruits and even a few dirty traces. Hints of sesame oil (I don’t think I’ve ever noticed this in a whisky before but it’s clearly there). Mouth: maybe a tad less fat and a tad less peaty. More spices though. Less different than on the nose, but still it misses the balance of the 2009 version. Hints of heather honey that I didn’t find in the newer version. Finish: medium length, less briney and more malty. Very dry.

    This Springbank 10yo is less complex and a bit rougher. Let’s be glad the current version is definitely the better choice.

    Score: 82/100

    An excellent 10.  One of the best.
    • Nose
      Big and oaky.  Hints of brine and peat.  Fruity, but earthy. Mulitgrain bread.  
    • Taste
      Sweet.  Dried apricots, then cereal grains.  Nutty with smoky peat undercurrents.  Sharp and crisp.
    • Finish
      Medium long and spicy.  Coastal, salty and dry.
