An early 2019 release of 12 year old cask strength single malt from Springbank! The distillers have deviated from their usual cask recipe, drawing 50% of the whisky from bourbon casks and 50% from sherry casks (previous editions have been aged in 30% bourbon casks and 70% sherry casks).
Springbank 12 Year Old Cask Strength Scotch Whisky
Our 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.
It’s reminiscent of walking in an autumn forest full of pine and chestnut trees, before returning home to the iodine of a Campbeltown malt and ending with a delicate hint of peat.
A gorgeous richness on the palate which is balanced between citrus marmalade on toast and caramelised toasted marshmallows, not forgetting flavours of vanilla and pepper. It’s a lip licking meaty dram.
A delicious, viscous, smooth liquid with a salty edge. It brings back memories of a ham joint which has been marinated in a rich honey sauce and slow baked in the oven.
