My first foray into this brand was the 15 year old which I thought was superb but the 10 yr old offers something very different. Best completely neat and after a couple of measures and a hour or so whisky really grabs you. Sharper and brighter than the 15 yr old, the nose is almost a bourbon orange with the signature sea spray aroma mix, rich and complex on the palate with a bitter chocolate spice that quickly kicks into a smoky mature orange-peel tang and and dry citrus oak finish. Lovely stuff.

Nice to see someone as enthusiastic about Springbank as myself. I've only been drinking single malts for about a year and was half-heartedly learning about them the first few months until I tried the 15 year Springbank. Wow! That is the one that got me started...searching tirelessly for something as good led me to some other great Single Malts that I treasure. However, the 15 is still right up there if not my favorite. Just recently purchased the 18 and must say it's excellent...smoother, bigger, and longer finish than the 15. However, the 15 has complexity on the pallet I still can't find with anything else...just divine.
