Springbank 12 years old / 54,2% – The 12 years old Cask Strength releases from Springbank come out once or twice a year and contain whiskies aged in ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks. They are extremely popular among whisky aficionados, especially Campbeltown malt lovers. Batch # 14 was released in early 2017 and it is a combination 70% sherry and 30% bourbon casks. Springbank has always used a substantial amount of sherry barrels for whisky aging and that type of wood works really well for briny and lightly peated Campbeltown spirit.

Nose: complex, forest floor, highland meadow, apricots, bananas, pineapple, roasted chestnuts, vanilla, toffee, hints of tobacco and peat and a whiff of sea breeze.

Palate: rich and fruity, oranges, honeydew melon, raisins, milk chocolate, pepper, touch of aniseed, roasted nuts, delicate peaty and oaky notes.

Finish: long with notes of apricots, mix of dried herbs, salt, pepper and honey roasted nuts.
