This really is an exceptional offering and one that I've been meaning to obtain for a while now. This is the latest bottling 2010 of the 18 yo. I don't usually add water to my whisky but this needs it ( in my opinion) as neat is just a bit to dense and oily. On the nose I'm finding an unusual blend of sea spray almost champagne like evervesence, butterscotch and white pepper. The arrival is super-light, a truffle oil coating of the palate moving onto a light sherry and sea-salt stage and finishing with a fresh ginger and long tingling white pepper finish that sparkles like fine champagne.

The signature sea salt freshness is perfectly complimented with a delicate soft sherry lightness and exotic pepper finish.

it is Jay.... and after trying several Whiskies in this range this last couple of months, I would say that this is now my fave.... many other I've tried that are more expensive or have won awards don't compare...

I misspelt effervescence, just realized..

As a big fan of Springbank 10, I'll have to apply for a whiskey loan for the 18 year. Thanks for reviewing !
