For five generations the Mitchells now run the oldest independent family-owned distillery in the Scotland. Their 10 year old offers whisky drinkers the perfect introduction to the Springbank range. Matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, it is perfectly balanced from the first sip through to the full, rich finish. It smells of pear with a hint of peat, vanilla and malt. On the palate we get oak, spice, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla with a sweet lingering salty tingle for the finish.
