The Springbank distillery is one of a small number of remaining Campbeltown distilleries - it used to be one of the most prolific regions, somewhat akin to Speyside, though today only a handful of distilleries remain. Luckily, the Springbank distillery produces a fantastic array of Campbeltown whisky for us to enjoy, including classic Springbank (lightly peated), Hazelburn (unpeated) and Longrow (heavily peated), and they’re all bloomin’ marvellous. Our Springbank label features Neil Ridley and Joel Harrison (formerly of caskstrength.net) working the old Porteus Mill at Springbank. Put your back into it, lads!
Nose: Rich and complex with oak, cocoa, juicy black cherries and toasted oats.
Taste: Smooth toffee notes to start followed by tropical fruits and warming cinnamon.
Finish: A dry finish with more oaty flavours coming through. There’s also a final hint of burnt rubber.
