Springbank Distillery is the oldest independent family owned distillery in Scotland and is the only one to carry out the full production process, from traditional floor malting to bottling, on one site.
Their range of whiskies are the most hand made in Scotland, with human involvement at each and every stage and they are the only distillery never to have chill-filtered, nor coloured, any of their single malts.
Their range offers a choice of whiskies to delight both the whisky novice and connoisseur to alike and has cemented their status as a cult classic, iconic whisky producer.
Springbank 10yo Single Malt whisky is the perfect introduction to the Springbank range. Complexity is the key word here, yet the combination of Springbank Single Malt matured in Bourbon and Sherry casks remain perfectly balanced from first sip to the full, rich finish.
“Orchard fruit with a hint of peat, vanilla and malt on the nose and layers of oak, spice and malt on the palate. The dram finished with a unique lingering salty tingle.”
Springbank 12yo is bottled at cask strength (58.5% alc) for a rich, intense explosion of flavour on the palate. Dried over peat for 6 hours and then a further 24 hours over hot air, this unique whisky is a powerful addition to the range.
“Warm and rich, like a hot slice of toasted bread with melting butter and homemade orange marmalade. Great oily texture and a spicy, warm and long finish with a waft of smoke.”
Springbank 15yo is truly a classic Springbank, best enjoyed after dinner or with your favourite cigar. The richness comes from the sherry casks used in the slow maturation of the whisky, unlike its brothers, no Bourbon casks have been used.
“Creamy raisins, dark chocolate, figs and marzipan are abundant on the palate, all finished with a light hint of heather and a smokey touch of leather.”
Springbank 18yo heads back to the combination of both sherry and bourbon casks for maturing, and the length of time in oak gives this whisky its unique rusty copper colour and sweet finish.
“Full of authority, rich and creamy at first but then sweet vanilla, ripe fruits and almond flavours come to the forefront. Thick and oily in texture, the finish is long and consistent with a pleasant smokey tingle”
