    N- Grilled young pineapple drizzle pinch of salts with dash of wild honey and shaves of bonito flakes. Breezy sweet mints smokes in the air. More fruits developed with lasting penetrating zest that followed by crushed peppers. Sweet meats, distant rubbery, quite exceptional for a just 10YO. (91/22)

    P- Breathing out seasoned parquet and leather. Tasty dried fruits of figs with spicy and edgy dry oak. (87/21)

    F- Medium long, tobacco, bitter chocolate, coffee, dried wax and oily tar. (89/22)

    B/B- 90/22. Gentle enough but prefer it to be bolder.

    Weighted Rate- 87pt

    Aroma: multi-layered, mowed grass, light smoke and peat, milk caramel (toffee), sea flavors, sea breeze, fresh linen, salt, caramel, only now salted, baked apple, smoked meat, rags soaked with machine oil, orange peel, mineral notes, lime, dry board. Very diverse and rich, it seems that whisky is older than 10 years.

    Taste: a lot of spices, a mixture of peppers, lube, something metallic, needles, toffee going into grapefruit bitterness, salted caramel, dried apples, smoke.

    Finish: caramel sweetness, variety of spices, mineral-peat, longer than average. The feeling that you drank heavily mineralized water and the ash remains for a long time!

    Rating: 87

    Bottom line: one of my favorite initial breakers! Everything is very diverse in all components, not at all boring, and pouring it into a glass always feels joy. Yes, in general, everything I tried from Campbelltown always pleased that at the beginning of my whisky-way, that now, after I have already tried a lot of things . So you can safely recommend, not only Springbank, but everything that is being done in Campbelltown, I think anyone there will find whisky for themselves!

    Re review after a while of oxidation (1st review in August 2018)

    Compared it this time H2H with Springbank 15. 15 is more Woody better balanced and more mature. 10 is quite young, grassy but still very well rounded and pleasant.
    • Nose
      More grassy then before. Still nutmeg delicate peat and tropical fruits
    • Taste
      Full bodied, well rounded and oily. Vanilla, white pepers. Great stuff
    • Finish
      Woody, peaty and vanilla in the finish. Moderate duration.

    A nice, easy to drink Springbank. For it's age i think this is a very deserving whisky.
    • Nose
      Typical Springbank. Sweet vanilla wood, a bit dry, very delicate peat. Gives a warm sensation. Some ripe fruits. There's still a slight smell of new make with cereals and malt.
    • Taste
      Soft and silky in the mouth. It's friendly. Gentle peat, vanilla again, some fruits. Slight nuttiness. Nutmeg.. Very consistent, and with a slight hint of malt which I can appreciate in this one!
    • Finish
      Warm and peppery. After that some vanilla and quite a lot of wood. The peat is gentle and gives a nice medium high moist sensation. Medium finish.
