Springbank 12 Year Old Cask Strength

Batch 15 of the full strength twelve year old from the Campbeltown distillery. Matured in 70% Sherry casks and 30% Bourbon casks bottled Summer 2017. Nose: A richness of maraschino cherries, wild berries and boiled sweets combine with softer notes of fruit and nut chocolate, almond ice cream and watermelon to give a warm and pleasant introduction to this twelve year old dram. Palate: The gentle nature of the palate does not hint that this is a cask strength whisky with viennese whirls, milk chocolate, cantuccini biscuit, walnut whip present alongside cloves, almonds and syrup. Finish: Salted caramel, gentle smoke and dunnage warehouse notes influence this true Campbeltown malt, while coffee bean, clotted cream, hazelnut and liquorice all add a further dimension to this superb dram ensuring you return for a refill.

Springbank Distillery was established in 1828 in Campbeltown at the foot of the Mull of Kintyre on the west coast of Scotland. Springbank produces three different types of single malt whisky Hazelburn which is non-peated and triple distilled, Longrow which is highly peated and double distilled and Springbank which is medium peated and partially triple distilled having been distilled two and a half times. Barley is spread across traditional malting floors at Springbank where it germinates and is then dried on the perforated floor of the malt kiln. The Springbank 10 Year Old, 15 Year Old Local Barley and Springbank 21 Year old annual release are very popular whiskies.
