Tasted #31: Springbank 18yo

The 10yo was on my list, and I enjoyed it more than I expected, so on our recent trip to Singapore, I decided to try the 18yo at The Auld Alliance.

Springbank 18yo (46% ABV, 18 years old, Campbelltown Scotland)
Nose: Light, summer-y, as you'd expect from a Campbelltown whisky. I also got some fresh fruits (pears and citrus) as well as baked croissants!

Palate: More peppery than I was expecting, with a slight citrus tang

Finish: Medium to short, retaining the same peppery and spicy notes found on the palate.

Rating (on my very non-scientific scale): 90/100. As with the 10yo, I wouldn't pay the asking price in Australia for it, but I'd consider picking up a bottle duty-free if the price was right.
