** Springbank 12 Year Cask Strength (56.5%) – 24 Jul 2017
A mid-2017 release of 12 year old cask strength single malt from the spectacular Springbank distillery in the Campbeltown region. It was drawn from a combination of 70% Sherry casks and 30% bourbon casks, and this time it’s been bottled at 56.5% ABV. Unlikely to stick around for long.
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.
