Top 10 Single Malt Scotch

The full and luscious Springbank 10 Year Old 100 Proof hails from Campbeltown, Scotland, and made our list of the Top 10 Single Malt Scotch

Springbank 10 Year Old 100 Proof
Campbeltown

Springbank Distillery's ten-year-old cask-strength Single Malt is a lightly peated, shining example of their craftsmanship, which features a unique two-and-a half-times distillation process. On the nose it offers an array of aromas, including honey, fresh cucumber and a hint of brininess, finishing with smoke and peat. Although it begins its life in Bourbon barrels, it finishes out in sherry barrels, lending to its richness. The 100 proof is needed to support and balance this intense Scotch. The mouthfeel is full, luscious and a tad sweet with a long finish of smoke, peaty lemon zest and fall leaves.

Price: $55

India Pale Ale was first developed for British soldiers in South Asia; however, the style has since gained popularity with civilian beer fans.

Although sipping fine Scotch can be an expensive habit, GAYOT's Top 10 Single Malt Scotch Whiskies start at a reasonable $50 a bottle.
