great cask influence. I always come back to try and chase more flavors. very complex but not too dense. slightly peated, good sherry notes. take your time with this one. very rewarding, maybe not so for beginners.
I have never tasted a whiskey that marries wonderful sweet and very rich flavors with darker flavors of peat (mild though), slight brine, leather, and tobacco smoke. Just mind-blowing every time. I love this whiskey but I love complex whiskeys. This will not hit you like a traditional Islay but it will be more challenging than your Balvenie or Macallan...but that's what I like...it a little from both sides of the world.
I love the smooth, sherried style whiskeys like the Macallan, and I love the smoky Islay style even more. To me, this whiskey feels like the nearest one can get to a harmonious marriage between the two. A fabulous dram at a reasonable price.
Welcome to Springbank! A great introduction to Campbeltown. The nose is rich and sharp, once you acclimatize however it’s all earthy dark fruits with that classic Springbank medicinal twang. The peat seems to dance around the rich coastal flavors. It manages to be well rounded all the way through from lips to finish. 15/18yo make this look tame so if this is your cup of tea they are highly recommended!
How do you find somebody who knows nothing about single malts? Scroll down to the people who don't like this. This is the benchmark for standard whiskies. There isn't a better or more complex 10-year-old. Natural color and non-chill filtered. Get this one, folks and graduate to the educated malt drinkers.
