Springbank is one of the only family owned Scottish distilleries and handles the production of their whisky from the malting of the barley to the finishing of the spirit. On the nose, lemongrass, seaweed, and hints of peat. On the palate it has a medium weight but with plenty of oil. One can pick out coconut, honeysuckle, and a little lemon peal as well as bacon.
A cask strength sherried scotch that delivers on the nice toffee and chocolate notes that we expect from a sherried cask but also it's surprisingly smooth and elegant for its high ABV. A really special dram for those who love sherried whisky.
Classic Islay peated malt that is non-chill filtered and has a higher than normal ABV for a standard expression. The result is a beautifully rich and peaty dram that has a nice sweetness of the front end to balance the overall headiness.
