Springbank 10 Year Old
The Springbank Distillery is one of the oldest independent family owned distillery left in Scotland. It produces three uniquely different Scotch single malts: Longrow, Hazelburn and Springbank. The difference is achieved by using Springbank's three stills in different combinations as well as adjusting the peat levels. Bottling’s under the Springbank Label are stylistically lightly peated and, rather curiously, distilled two-and-a-half times.
Drawn from a marriage of whiskies aged in both Ex-Bourbon and Ex-Sherry casks. Do not be fooled by this malts lightness of colour as it hides well the secret of its rich characterful profile. Nosing reveals a crisp minerality quality evolving through phenolic notes, waxy, coastal sea air, briney, resinous, subtle hints of pine needles and bitter oranges. On the palate it shows well its touches of smoke, vanilla oils, nutmeg, cinnamon, crack white pepper, and an almost salty tang that has been a class characteristic older bottling’s from this seminal distillery.
A gorgeously fat and oily mouthfeel of a dram..
