Springbank 10 Year Old
Also from Springbank Whisky Distillery
Whisky or Whiskey
Interesting fact… Springbank 10 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Springbank 10 Year Old whiskey, instead of whisky.

The nose is big-bodied with oaked aridity. The peat is present and quite pungent with an earthen rootiness. Notes of exotic fruits and a hint of salinity. The palate is full-bodied with a good helping of cereal sweetness. There is a richness to the peat, with a dark nuttiness and whirling smoke. The finish is long and crisp with a coastal tang and a trailing peat with oaked dryness.
George - Springbank 10
A great and very different dram!
Bourbon side of whisky
Definately more peaty than I'd thought it would be. It's the first thing that hits you on the nose and it stays in the taste. Its most defining characteristic (to me, at any rate) is its combination of oaky dryness and subtle tropical fruityness (particularly if you give it a little splash of water and a couple of minutes in the glass). I didn't get many of the typical sherry notes, save for a slightly sulphorous overtone on the nose. A particularly dry, tangy malt with mild peaty smokiness always present. Very nice stuff.
To me it was really a Bourbon Barrel Edition. Though it had't the freshness of bourbon Bruicladdich editions. Non chill-filtered and no caramel added. This is a very good 10yo incarnation.
This is my first bottle of Campbeltown and I'm not dissapointed, this offers something very different from the rest of my collection. Intense oak and damp earth with a lovely middle sweetness and strong sea air and brine. Has a lot to offer for a 10yo NCF (Thumbs up) No Caramel Colour (two Thumbs up) What a cracking dram and agreat standard expression ..15 yo next!
Really enjoyable, boasting a great maturity for a ten year old; a fantastically atmospheric malt. Really enjoyable with seafood, or even surf and turf. Nose: Earthy and warm, spicy peatiness melds with salt caramel very harmoniously. Palate: Full with barley sweetness, like riding a wave of salted caramel with that beautifully balanced peat weaving its way into the medley. Finish: Rich smoke. Sweetness gives way to a salty tang. Long and satisfying, oak infused with the smells and tastes of the coast.
