Net weight: 1.6kg
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 meats.
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.
Springbank distillery is the oldest independent, family-owned distillery in
Scotland. Legal distillation began in 1828. The chairman is Hedley Wright, the great, great grandson of John Mitchell, the first legal distiller of Springbank whisky.
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 is unique in Scotland.
Three malt whiskies are produced at Springbank distillery, each with its own
character. Springbank which is 80% of production, is lightly peated and distilled
two and a half times. Longrow is more heavily peated and distilled two times.
Hazelburn is unpeated and distilled three times.
