  • Springbank 10 Year old - Zesty...

    Here’s Springbank’s 10 year old. It’s my opinion that not all 10-12 year old introductory malts are the best ambassadors for their distilleries. When you’re offering your most affordable, and likely best… read more

    First tasted at Springbank in September 2009 this expression came alive like no other bottle tasted that day. Re-tasted recently from the bottle hidden in the back of my scotch cabinet, the nose is pure… read more
