Springbank 10 Review

This is the 10 year expression that’s part of Springbank’s core range. It’s a blend of bourbon and sherry matured malts bottled at 46%.

Nose: Young oak with slight turpentine leading into a briny malt with subtle anise. I don’t get a lot of sherry influence from the nose here.

Palate: Fruity bubblegum with strong oak followed by spiced barley with pepper crusted smoked meat.

Finish: Funky malt with spiced oak and heavy grass notes – lasts for quite a long time.

Rating: 82/100 – Some nice complexities for a 10 year malt, but doesn’t come fully together for me.

Value for the money: These retail around $55 or so, and at that price it’s not too bad.
