- Perfect example for a reliable handmade product. This is so old school. Best value for money. Look Diageo, this is Whisky...
- Great whisky for ~ 40 €, quite intense, no Gaumenschmeichler, great for getting started smoke / salt / earth. ------------ Note: On the occasion of bottle change with the predecessor https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/5896 compared in parallel: At the beginning, although the old nasal something more open-hearted rueber (the bottle was also about half a year open), but after I can not distinguish 5-10 min in the glass and would sign my notes to the same again, therefore 1: 1 taken over.
first mild, ashy smoke (a bit salty, mineral, musty cellar, wet cardboard) ... then fruity-fresh (lemon, green apple, salt again), hazelnut cream, caramel and malt
mineral earthy, slightly salty and metallic (but not pungent / young), pepper; on the other side sweetness - nut nougat cream, caramel, milk chocolate; both well balanced
medium length, some milk chocolate, a lot of salt, pepper, some bitter smoke, charcoal
- This note is specifically in relation to this batch of the Springbank 10 (batch 16/517, bottled on 20.12.2016), which was the first to carry the new design label. Insanely delicious whisky for a standard 10 year old bottling. I'm guessing they picked particularly special casks to create a batch to launch the new design with. In simplified tasting terms, this has a similar profile to the Springbank 9 year old local barley, but perhaps with just an extra layer of subtlety (partly due to the lower strength). All salty lemon, grease, earth and oils, weaved together in soft harmony.
- A new version of SB 10 of good quality. No big fault if it is not a reduction too much felt. I enjoyed this whisky.
Fine peat, austere and mineral. There is plant freshness, lemon, mint, anise and some fruits. A little salt adds to the set for a nice sweet / salty.
Light attack, we feel the reduction (a slightly watery side).
The fine peat disappears little by little to give way to a more woody, chocolatey, spicy mouth (pepper ...). There are also some leather notes.
Average length on the wood, vanilla cream, sweet spices, salt and a fine vegetable peat present but in excess.
- i’m not overly fond of this compared to the old releases of springbank 10 (black box and label) as it has lost what to me is the best quality of springbank, that funky oily aroma
orange marmalade, grass, light smoke, honey
orange marmalade, orange peel, citrus, sweet grains, marzipan
marzipan, orange peel, light smoke, sugars and oranges at the back
- This quality for 45 €? Currently almost unequaled!
Sweet orange peel, salty and mineral, slightly greasy smoke, cotton candy, lime, sour candy, green apple
In principle, a typical salty and vigorous Springbank start, but a little sweeter and creamier, the juice oranges are fully there, slightly dry on the cheek
Everything plays together, sweet, orangy, strong, slightly oaky, becoming increasingly mineral
- This is certainly one of the fruitiest regular 10yo bottlings. Just hints of leather, smoke and wood which is fantastic!
Fresh, fruity, pineapples, pears, mango, whiffs of leather and smoke, also some creme brulee, hints of citrus fruits, honey dew, wax polish - very good
Very oily and creamy, now more fine citrus and wood notes, oranges, lemons, and more exotic fruits, subtle sweetness - excellent
Medium long, fruity, warm - gets more punchy and mineral in the end - great
- This is one of my absolute favorite easy drinking whisky and the price to performance is absolutely ridiculous. They could charge 60 bucks for it and it would still be reasonable (let's hope they never do this)
Great for beginners of smoky whisky and people that want to be absolutely hooked to whisky for the foreseeable future.
At first Salty and mineral, with minimal Peat smoke, but then it opens up to a very fruity nose.
Salt, medicine, alcohol, light ashy Peat, fresh cut grass, seaweed, pears, orange peels, apples, elderflower
Very easy going and easy drinking well balanced and tastes older.
First Salty and lightly peaty and then again fruity floral notes like peaches and oranges and pears followed by sweet honey and then again it gets Salty and peaty
Long and balanced finish, keeps my stomach quite warm for a while.
Wood notes and quite some spice, followed by seaweed and smoke and more oak influence. Then it gets quite sweet and turns very oaky in the end.
- More peated than its brother Kilkerran 12. Kilkerran is much more citrusy and "fresh". Also I dont feel any sherry undertones in it.
Im not much into sherry tones, but they are not that present in Springbank. Still... Kilkerran 12 is more interesting and cheaper. Its the better Campbeltown right now.
Bourbon sweetness, peat, citrusy, salty, underline sherry tones. All in all Talisker 10 like with some added fruits.
tropical fruits, salt
