Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Pouring a light amber hue tinged with golden highlights, the Springbank 10 Year captivates the eye, its visual clarity reinforcing its purity and craftsmanship.
The olfactory experience is a rich tapestry of maritime influences, underscored by briny undertones and a waft of seaweed. Interlaced within this maritime bouquet are intricate notes of dried fruit, oak, and a subtle smokiness that adds depth to the nose.
Upon the first sip, one is greeted with a multifaceted array of flavors—nutty elements, particularly almonds and hazelnuts, quickly make their presence felt. These nutty notes are masterfully balanced by a honeyed sweetness, accented by bursts of citrus fruits and a restrained touch of peat. Mild spiciness in the form of cinnamon and pepper adds an additional layer of complexity.
The finish is enduring, carrying forth the peaty and maritime aspects into a final act that concludes with lingering notes of vanilla and oak. The spiciness subsides gradually, leaving a warming sensation that encapsulates the palate.
Medium-bodied with a velvety texture, the whisky delivers an exceptional mouthfeel that accentuates its complex flavor profile.

I have quite a few Islay’s but there times when I want a lightly Peated dram. Coal Ila 12 was my preference until Springbank 10. Not even close
It was my first time to experience Springbank distillery whisky. Everything was perfect. All of my friends tasting together were satisfied.
Great service, fast shipping and excellent packaging. Earned my business. To top it off got some Springbank, my favorite!
I've always loved this whiskey and it took until now to actually bring home a bottle of my own. The more attention you pay to this one, the better it gets. Sweet, fruity, smoky, and a bit cookie-ish on the nose. Medium body with caramel, vanilla, and some sesame and coconut on the mid palate. Mild smoky finish. Dollar for dollar, one of the most complex and interesting whiskies around.
Bought a case of whisky, delivered from CA to NY. Very securely packaged, quick delivery, great service.
