Distillery tasting notes:
Nose: Very fruity! Toffee apples, pears and strawberry chocolates in the background; salted popcorn kernels, mint leaves and honey.
Taste: Salty and coastal, the fruitiness continues with raisins, chocolate orange and prunes. A dryness develops with demerara sugar and digestive biscuit.
Finish: Drying BBQ spices; cayenne pepper and paprika followed by cinnamon sugar, oats, pecan nuts and the typical gentle Longrow smokiness.
Springbank is one of Scotland’s most historic distilleries and one of the most sought-after by Scotch enthusiasts. An icon of the Campbeltown region, it is arguably the most hand-made whisky made from a distillery that has survived from the Victorian era. They are one of the last distilleries to have their own maltings – and certainly one of the very few to malt 100 percent of their requirements on site.
The distillery produces three types of malt for whisky. Springbank is two-and-a-bit times distilled and lightly peated, Longrow is double distilled and heavily peated and Hazelburn is triple distilled and unpeated.
