I Had found some great reviews about previous Springbank 12yo CS versions, and was keen to try batch 10 (2015 release) myself.
Matured in a combo of 70% Ex-Sherry and 30% Ex-Bourbon casks. Hard to say if this ones in the same level as its predecessors because of the lack of experience. But I can say one thing: this is a great dram
A stunning sequel to, living up to the greatness of the trilogy – The Bourne Ultimatum!
Nose: Fresh with citrus and just a little hint of peat smoke. The nose is so fresh, that actually feels like someone had sprayed fresh juice from a grape. Toffee and licorice notes stay in the background.
Taste: Honey, toffee and hints of pepper. Citrus is yet again involved, first it comes in the form of fresh grape/lemon, turning into sour lemon peel.
Finish: Bitter aftertaste, ginger and mint are dominating. Citrus notes are there too. Very very fresh and bitter.
Balance: Great dram, offering strong and versatile notes. Changes from fresh to dark notes and back to fresh notes again.
