Review #73 | /r/Scotch Review #26 – Springbank 10

The Schtick: This is a member of Springbank’s core line of products. Springbank is in the relatively small region of Scotland known as Cambeltown (small in respect to population of large distillers).


Distiller: Springbank

Bottler: Springbank

ABV: 43% ABV

Age: 10 Years

Source: Sample


Nose: Smoke, honey, light citrus and some very faint rubber. Tiny bit of malt sweetness.

Taste: Some smoke giving way to sweet honey. The smoke isn’t overpowering and it’s not peaty. There’s some more citrus it all blends very nicely.

Finish: Medium to long and very gentle. Lots of smoke, followed by honey sweetness and one last wisp of smoke.

Overall: I’m very impressed. This has just the right blend of smokey to sweet. Big fan.

Thanks for reading!
