Hello everyone , This is my review of Springbank 10 year old , A lively and feisty malt from Campbeltown. You tend not to really take this one seriously but Its like a featherweight prize fighter flying around the boxing ring. Its light on its feet and delivers a flurry of punches. I'm usually left saying What the hell was that? , its quick and fast, I like it

For the Nose I get the crisp airy , citrus, zesty , sea breeze with this one ,

The for the delivery , Instant white pepper, powdered sugar citrus lemon drop , lightly peated with a whiff of iodine , or medicinal gauze , does not sound tasty but it is, Barley Oak , Juicy.

The finish is pepper , I get cognac , orange peels , cherries , zesty spices

Overall , I like this 10yr old expression from Campbeltown , Springbank has been a consistent favorite for experts and recreational malt enthusiasts alike , Its an excellent malt and a great price , Zesty , refreshing , light, crisp , fast and sneaky. Take it home its a keeper

I've been very curious about this one. Fellow whisky enthusiasts often describe it as a balance between light, yet savory. Even with some notes of cured meats and as you said medicinal bandages. It's pricey down here in Miami Florida, so I'm saving it for a special occasion. Great review!
