Tasting Notes by Marek

I like the fact Springbank in not chill filtered and doesn't contain artificial colouring. Nose: seaweed, sea air, mineral, oranges. Palate: oily mouthfeel, peaty (but not as powerfull as some Islayers), salty, slightly fruity. Finish is smoky, waxy and long. Very well-balanced.

Yes—seaweed AND sea air! I'm tempted to say that Springbank's basic 10 is the definitive Campbeltown malt. Everything else is a variation on this theme.
