How to Drink
Springbank takes pride in producing single malt Scotch made entirely in-house, employing traditional skills that have been passed down from one generation to the next. Produced since 1828, Springbank Single Malts are lightly peated in their kiln and distilled 2.5 times. No distillery in Scotland is more distinct or authentic than Springbank. They continue to make exceptional whisky by hand in the traditional manner. Without a doubt Springbank stands out as being the only distillery in Scotland using 100% of their own floor-maltings, fermenting the barley naturally, and distilling with a direct fire element.
From the distillery: Like a storm gathering off the Kintyre coast, our 15 year old Springbank is dark and ominous, but delicious. Best enjoyed after dinner or with your favourite cigar, this is a true classic.
On the nose, this dram is big and bold with notes of cured meat, barbecued beef jerky, clove, mint, iodine, oxo cube and tinned prunes all evident from the Oloroso cask maturation, while lobster creels hint at Springbank’s characteristic maritime influence. On the palate, the peaty character is now evident with sooty kiln smoke and tobacco leaves prominent in this viscous tipple alongside prunes, walnuts, figs, Demerara sugar, cocoa powder and smoked meats. On the finish, it grows and develops with notes of soot, leather and walnuts prominent before easing off like the ebbing tide over one of Kintyre’s pebble beaches.
Aged in exclusively ex-sherry casks, these are used for maturation to impart delicate fruity and floral notes before being diluted to 46% alcohol by volume and bottled. None of Springbank’s bottlings are chill-filtered nor is any additions for colour stabilization or caramel used.
