The 10 Year Old is the perfect introduction to the Springbank range. Whilst bourbon casks are mainly used for maturation, allowing the distillery character to shine through, a number of sherry casks are also used for added body. The light colour of this malt belies the richness of its character. Whilst the nose suggests a wide range of aromas, from citrus fruits to pears and a hint of peat, the palate excites even further with a touch of smoke, vanilla essence, nutmeg, cinnamon and the salty tang we have come to expect from Springbank. Complexity is the key word here yet it remains perfectly balanced from first sip to the full, rich finish.
The house style for the Springbank distillery is: Springbank house style Salty, oily, coconut. Aperitif. Longrow house style Piney, oily, damp earth. Nightcap.
