The Springbank distillery is one of only 3 distilleries operating in the Campbeltown region of Scotland. It's owned by the Mitchell family and happens to be the oldest family-owned distillery in Scotland.
They still do every part of the process in-house. Craft distillery style yet producing enough to be distributed world wide. Respect for that. Springbank 10 was aged for 10 years and partially matured in ex-sherry casks.
This Springbank 10 single malt was actually my first Campbeltown Scotch I've ever tried. I was nervous to try it as I've heard many people refer to something called the "Springbank funk" but after trying it I didn't find anything funky about it. Granted, this was a bottle that was opened for many months before it was donated to the channel so oxidation could have played a factor in to what we were tasting.
While neither Mike or I were impressed with this bottle, we want to hear from you. Is there another Springbank whisky we should review sometime soon?
You can watch our video review of Springbank 10 below:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
