Nose

Süße Orangenschale, salzig und mineralisch, gaaanz leichter Rauch, Zuckerwatte, Limette, saure Bonbons, grüner Apfel

Taste

Prinzipiell ein typisch salziger und kräftiger Springbank-Antritt, aber etwas süßer und cremiger, die Saftorangen sind voll da, leichte trocken an der Wange

Finish

Alles spielt zusammen, süß, orangig, kräftig, leichte Eichenwürze, immer mineralischer werdend

Nose

Fresh, fruity, pineapples, pears, mango, whiffs of leather and smoke, also some creme brulee, hints of citrus fruits, honey dew, wax polish - very good

Taste

Very oily and creamy, now more fine citrus and wood notes, oranges, lemons, and more exotic fruits, subtle sweetness - excellent

Finish

Medium long, fruity, warm - gets more punchy and mineral in the end - great

Comments

This is certainly one of the fruitiest regular 10yo bottlings. Just hints of leather, smoke and wood which is fantastic!

Perfect example for a reliable handmade product. This is so old school. Best value for money. Look Diageo, this is Whisky...

Springbank 10 yo (46%, OB, 2016) Five stars Not everyone agrees with the new livery, but to me it shouts ‘we don’t care about the outside, it’s what’s inside the bottle that counts’. Something only self-confident brands can do, while I believe there aren’t that many of them in whiskydom. But onto this wee tenner, while keeping in mind that I had just adored its predecessor last year (WF 91). Colour: gold. Nose: no, really, it’s becoming boring. Such a perfect dry, almost top-manzanilla-like profile, with everything sooty, inky, tarry, mineral, saline… Even its fermentary side is a hit, when that can be totally disastrous elsewhere. And look, plasticine, that can be seen as a flaw elsewhere, but not here, because of the way it mingles with the other aromas. Boring boring Springbank… Mouth: I’m very upset now. I was hoping for some tiny flaws, something shaky, something that would keep the conversation going, something controversial… But this palate is disappointingly immaculate, deplorably perfect, and lamentably satisfying. Tarry lemon juice, waxy minerals, and sooty herbs. You know, I’m feeling I’m about to lose my temper… Finish: I’ve just decided to go on strike. After all, Alsatians are also French. Comments: I said no. SGP:452 – 92 points (but that’s my very last warning).

Finish: Sweet, with a lingering salty tingle.
