The 12-year-old edition, always bottled at cask strength, is a wonderfully balanced dram that boasts a smooth buttery body and rich fruity palate. Add a drop of water to release milk chocolate and vanilla notes.
Springbank is one of the few remaining family owned distilleries. Nearly all of its whisky is sold as a single malt, with little of it finding its way into blends. Most blends are produced by larger conglomerates who tend to use the single malts from the distilleries that they own in their blends. Springbank is one of few distilleries in Scotland to perform every step in the whisky making process, from malting the barley to bottling the spirit.

Nose: Classic Springbank with aromas of our damp dunnage warehouses alongside parma violets, vanilla and cocoa. Plenty of fruit too with prominent notes of pear and candied fruits.

Finish: Peaty embers influence this characteristically long finish which also reveals notes of liquorice, oak and salted caramel.
