A hotly anticipated release from the Springbank distillery in Campbeltown, this 17 year old single malt Scotch whisky has been 100% matured in Sherry oak casks and bottled at cask strength. This has resulted in a full-bodied flavour profile rich in dark coffee, Christmas cake and gingerbread, with subtle whiffs of light Springbank peat wafting through. It was unveiled in early 2015 - 9,120 bottles were released. A great bottling from the distillery in Campbeltown.
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.
