    Smoky nose, expected a fairly smoky flavor but it was a very smooth, slightly spicy taste with the smoke holding until the finish. Very drinkable

    A good introduction to the Campbeltown region: intense bourbon-like sweetness with a healthy amount of peat. Based on the nose, I think I actually prefer this to the 13 year.

    I discovered last night I didn't have a bottle of this! Corrected it today, it was truly embarrassing. Nose - So this is an odd note but watered down, soft, more sugar cane sweet, springbank. Now for those who don't know springbank lets get in this more. There's a light sherry casking here (evident on the color as well) which gives some fruit notes. touch of salted meat, a hint of BBQ sauce I always get on springbank (very subtle), there's a real note of just sugar, hint of smoke, and at the end I get a bit of a citrus fruit note. It's not a lime or an orange and it isn't into the berry realm either. Taste - opens with a light sweetness, there's a very nice soft flavor. It transitions to a bit of fruity character, there's oak and vanilla. It then transitions to peat, light smoke. The whisky just keeps getting strong and the flavors keep rising up from a soft sweet entry, warmer and more powerful fruity mid point and then a really warm alcohol and lightly singed peat smoke. Really want to get into the fruit notes, I think I'm getting pineapple. Springbank 10 is a required bottle on a real whisky lover's bar. There's just enough nice oak, sherry, peat, and a nice fruity sweet malt. Everything plays really well together and creates a very nice complex dram. I often forget all about the 10 year as I'm a bit more of a fan boy of the 12, but make no mistake this a whisky lovers whisky. This might however be a bit difficult for someone just getting into whisky. It's still however an entry level springbank so lets not get crazy. I will say I have had 12 cask strengths that weren't as good. 2.75 just because this might be a struggle for some people to get into. You gotta like where springbank goes before you buy this. Also 72 bucks is not cheap for a 10 year 46% whisky.

    Very impressive! Sweet fruit and alcohol on the nose. The taste is fruity and complex, but has higher than average alcohol burn. Clearly deserves a spot in your collection, and good for sharing.
