Our 10-year-old offers whisky drinkers the perfect introduction to the Springbank range. Matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, it is perfectly balanced from the first sip through to the full, rich finish. On the nose, orchard fruit (pear) with a hint of peat, vanilla and malt. On the palate, malt, oak, spice, nutmeg and cinnamon, vanilla essence. The finish is sweet, with a lingering salty tingle.
An acutely salty bouquet with additional scents of hemp, bean curd, sulfur, burning matches and palm oil. The appealing entry is aggressively malty, moderately spirity and smoky sweet; the midpalate's smoky sweetness is underpinned by flavors of toffee, toasted marshmallow, leaf tobacco and sweetened breakfast cereal. Ends on a delicious smoky/sweet note.
