Eiche und Rauchig
Schärfe Rauch und Eiche
Im Geruch viel Birne und etwas Rauch, die ich im Geschmack aber nicht wiederfinde. Dort gibt's Vanille und Honig. Im Abgang Eiche, Rauch und Gewürze.
Viel Birne, dazu Meersalz. Nach und nach kommt Rauch durch.
Honig und Vanille im Überfluss. Langsam kommt dann Schärfe durch.
Schärfe, die nach und nach abklingt. Eiche und Rauch gewinnen dann an Stärke.
some smoke. pepper and oak. alcohol is not too dominant
Tolles Preis/-Leistungsverhältnis. Sehr komplex und kräftig. Im Abgang ist er mir etwas zu herb. Aber Aroma und Geschmack können dafür umso mehr glänzen. Toller Tropfen und regelmäßig ein Kauf wert.

Not bad. A bit sharp but only for a short while, then a soft hint of coffee/vhovolate appears which is nice

Nose: light peat, sea air, Sherry, cinnamon, cherry, black pepper alcohol, toffee, opening into more of a sweet mapleb bb
Palate: leathery toffee, sweet wheat, pear, black pepper, herbal hints, light honey-nut, grainy malts
The aroma opens up nicely but the taste disappoints a bit at first with less sweetness and more subtle grain components. Fairly hot with nice burn at the back. The palate embraces this more as you continue through the pour. Medium-plus body.
Fruit, little smoke. Pretty complex and long
Lovely tropical fruits and maltiness that carries through the nose into the palate. hint of smoke and hints of lots of other flavours. impressive dram
Pineapple, tropical fruits, sweet, malted barley, toffee, hint of yeast, fresh orchard fruits, tiger bread, salt.
Very malty, oak, spicy, slightly savoury, sweet, tropical fruits just like the nose, caramel, a little heat and prickle, there's a slight bitterness, hint of smoke, slight oiliness, hint of plasticine, grapes.
Quite dry, medium-long, pencil shavings, bitter chocolate
mit blumigen Nuacen, Zitrusnoten, maritimen Einflüsse, sanftem Torfrauch. Eine Spur Sherry und etwas Eiche rundet alles ab. Der Geschmack ist sehr schön harmonisch. Nach kurzem erreicht deinen Gaumen eine schöne Pfefferbriese während sich eine schöne Eichennote aufbaut. Hand in Hand kommt eine rauchige Note dazu die im Abgang sanft abklingt.
excellent, complex, best of drinked whisky
The best standard 10 year offering (that isn't cask strength)? I think so.
Some smokiness but quite sweet and fruity overall.
A bit smoky with hints of tar and peat. Some fruitiness on the back end.
Sweet in front end. Fruity with some smoke and spicy alcohol burn on the side.
Fruity and sweet with vanilla and spicy alcohol burn.
Wow.... What a great drink this one is. Every time I have a glass of this whisky I taste something different. It is a complex mixture of many different flavours, all of which are very subtle with no one flavour being stronger or standing out beyond any other. Yet together all these flavours make for one extremely pleasant dram.
One time I taste sweetness with a hint of peat. On another occasion I picked out heather and toffee together with a very slight hint of saltiness then several minutes later an even slighter hint of smoke. Tonight I have got vanilla with apples and pears and that distant hint of peat oh and maybe sherry too.
This is probably one of the most interesting drams I have had the pleasure to try and I will most definitely buy this one again.... And again!
Lucky find in a local shop... very nice whisky.
I get very light smoke, oak, and salt
spice, little peat, and a light fruit taste near the end
very nice finish, does have a slight burn but it isn't unpleasant. few drops of distilled water help
Gentle nose. Sweet. Smoke takes time to develop. Pear notes on the palate. Reminds me a bit of Glenffidich 12 but more complex. Smoke at the back. Interesting aftertaste. 3 differing stages, 3 different experience.
Gentle smoke, fruit, seaside
Rich, smooth, minimal smoke, fruitiness, woody, more full bodied than expected
Smooth and rich, no lingering peat.
Fresh and smooth, very easy to drink, sweet spicy and fruity.
Well balanced and unique tasting. Zest, earthy, sweet, medicinal. Can tell the bourbon influence. Slight peat at the end. Heavy and long lasting.
Well rounded. Pear and apple nose. A little smoke. Very floral. A little salt, mildly oak vanilla. Some pepper and spice on the after and then a sweet lemon finish. Smoke builds.
Well rounded. A little cheese funk and pear nose. A little smoke. Very floral. A little salt, mildly oak vanilla. Some pepper and spice on the after and then a sweet lemon finish. Smoke builds.
I love peaty Islays, and Springbank does not have much peat compared to LagaPhroigBeg but just enough to catch attention and balance the salty fruity oily palate. 92 proof is nice compared to usual 80 proof drams. Almost like Ardbeg 10 with smoke turned down. Unique flavor profile. However, Clinelish 14 does taste somewhat similar, with the smoke gone, clarity turned up, and smooth complexity more apparent, albeit bit less dense.
Some fruit notes like orange, lemon and pears, very malty, a decent amount of oiliness and peat is akso there but the perfect overall ballance elevates it by miles. Sweet on the introduction, a slight bitterness on the mid-palate and some salty and spicy notes like cinnamon and salted caramel on the finish. At the very end of ge finish the bitterness returns. Simply amazin
no so good as i hoped to be.
My first Campbelltown whisky. Very well rounded. No single flavor really feels dominant. Instead, sweatness and earthiness and fruit notes mesh together into a very drinkable whisky
Nice oak, slight peat with a wonderful oily, butter finish. Quite floral, a wee citrus, and distinctly salt brine influences
magic marker aroma. decent burn with a white grape finish.
My first Campbeltown malt, actually different, yet not fully rewarding.
A bit overwhelming alcohol nose, a tasty herbal palate and slightly bitter aftertaste. In the end, it's not bad at all, just not exactly my taste.
Malty and fruity, ends with spices. better balanced than the Kilkerran, imo
(ALTE ABFÜLLUNG 2004)
Trocken, salzig, fruchtig. Wenig Rauch kein Torf. Lang anhaltender Geschmack mit trockener Frucht am Ende.
light, sweet vanlla herb, not dry and smooth
Smooth whiskey that is easy to drink. It doesn’t have a whole lot going on for the flavor. Flavors were just to mellow.
A very tasty, mild-peated malt with a surprising amount of fruit. Very well-balanced.
Sweet fruit i.e. pears, slight smoke with spice
Slight tongue tingle, malty , salty sweet
The finish is long and crisp with a coastal tang and a trailing peat with oaked dryness.
My first Campbelltown and I was pleasantly surprised. good flavor and finish.
smooth, full, well balanced
Very balancer spirit with peat/toffee/fruity flavours. Very smooth body with nice finish.
This is a real gem imo. Very well balanced between oiliness, smoke and sweetness. Lots of distillery character. Maybe some fruitiness.
Chameleon in whiskies. Very appely almost orange like nose. But when you get in to it you will taste the pure peaty beast yet not to aggressive but more like respect demanding. Dry hazelnuts can be tasted.
Earthy crisp/clean body and plenty of depth to it. Another interesting Campbeltown whisky.
Peat is present with an earthy/nutty quality, a hint of salinity.
Initially quite bland, cereal sweetness. Builds nicely into a nutty body with smoke arriving ready for the finish.
Long and crisp with a coastal tang and a trailing peat, oaky dryness.
buttery, smells like toffee. short finish
buttery, toffee, cut grass, short finish
a blend of sweet and peat
sweet nose with vanilla and a hint of honey or floral sweet. there is a touch of Smokey peat there as well
a lot less sweet than the nose and hits with a taste of smoke, and vanilla with notes of new shoe leather
short finish and doesn't sit. strong alcohol in the throat and a mild sweet.
A tasting @ whisky cafe L&B Amsterdam round 1.
Beforehand, this Campbeltown Springbank 10 has everything a dram needs. It has an abv of 46%, is uncoloured and unchillfiltered.
From the malt used, until bottling, eveything is done at the distillery.
At Springbank they combine double and triple distillation to compose this dram. So you get a 2,5 distilled dram.
After pouring this very nice and complex dram shows a ballet of different experiences. It's slight smokey with a malty fruityness.
Just when you think that was it, an oaky vanilla cinnamon pops up. You can smell both the sherry and bourbon casks used for maturation.
The nosing makes you craving for the first zip. Wow.
On the palate a smooth malty oakyness is detectable. Just when you think this is it, you start to realise you're fooled. An increasing power and spice from the European oak used, reveals itself along with the nuttyness of the sherried oak.
This dram nicely balances between spicy oak and smooth fruit.
The medium finish has no bitterness at all. Instead there's a nice prickling salty all-spice, slowly fading into a lovely chocolate finish.
This is a real multiple headed monster. Every time you chopped a head of, the next one appears.
Overall very nice, balanced and surprisingly complex. Therefore very advisable.
A little too medicinal for my liking, otherwise just okay, nothing special
Springbank! My favourite 10yo from my favourite distillery. Nicely balanced and still powerful.
Full nose with a lot vanilla, plums and marzipan and a bit of sherry character. Medium peated.
soft in the beginning getting stronger and stronger, with much more sherry, raisins, peat and spices. Oak coming through.
Espresso and dark chocolate with roasted oak. The finish is impressive and long.
Classic example of a Campbeltown whisky, juicy sweet malt with a good hit of peat smoke; delicious.
sehr leckerer Tropfen
Apples, bright fresh fruit. touch of iodine.
More apples, bigger iodine. Soft peat undertones.

A very nice, moderately peated whisky, not great, but a good example of a Campbeltown whisky.
One of my favorite
Really great one, a bit of smoke some peat salt and there ist a seataste i can't describe. Very intresting malt.
A very interesting Campbeltown whisky. Strongly smoky and peaty, maybe even a little bit salty with a long smoky aftertaste.
