The 2020 25 year old release from the Springbank distillery is here and as with past years will not hang around for long on our shelves. This release of 1,200 bottles comes from an equal mix of Bourbon and Sherry casks and as usual is bottled at 46%
There are a few Scottish distilleries that still malt their own barley but Springbank is the only distillery which malts 100% of its own barley, using the traditional floor maltings. The whole production process: malting, milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturation and bottling, happens on the one site in Campbeltown.
This whisky is being sold on a pre-sale basis and will be sent out as soon as we receive our stock from our suppliers.
Nose - Initially parma violets and rhubarb custard creams. A fresh spritz of grapefruit followed by a malty honeycomb sweetness
Palate - Maturity and complexity at its best. A rich and chewy palate with vanilla, fudge, tobacco and cured meat.
Finish - Oh yes, it's definitely a true Springbank with those coastal and earthy dunnage warehouse notes combining with honey glazed ham and waxy orange rind at the very end.
