Tasted #25: Springbank 10 (#101drams)

A quickfire tasting post to tick off one more off the list - this time from Campbelltown, in the form of Sprinkbank 10yo.

Springbank 10yo (46%, 10 years old, Campbelltown Scotland)
Nose: Light and fruity, with some intense orange notes.

Palate: Tangy - citrus tang. Some youth, but very smooth. I'll have to try the older varieties to see how this progresses with age.

Finish: Medium length. Light, and fruity right to the end. A beautiful summer whisky.

Rating (on my very non-scientific scale): 91/100. I actually really enjoyed this, and think it'd make a fantastic easy-drinking "summer" whisky. Would I buy a bottle? At the $100+ it can command in Australia? No. But at the $50-$60 it goes for overseas, I think this would be a great addition. I might consider picking up a bottle on a future trip.
