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: With its warm, golden glow, our 21 year old is inviting, creamy and offers unbelievable complexity. The maritime influence uncovered in this single malt will take you on a journey to its Campbeltown home.
On the nose, notes of dark berries, fruit cake, ginger and honey provide a warm introduction to this dram. A leather note reminiscent of old library books develops over time. On the palate, the familiar coastal influence is apparent on the palate. Soft and delicate, there are immediate notes of salted caramel and sticky toffee pudding, along with hints of cocoa, gingerbread and red berry cheesecake. On the finish, a long, smooth finish with notes of digestive biscuit and muscovado sugar.
Clocking in at 46% ABV, 2022’s release of Springbank’s 21 Year Old is aged in 55% Sherry casks and 45% Port casks, with only 3,600 bottles released worldwide.
Nose: Endless aromas that jump out of the glass and hug you. Orange peel, toffee, hazelnuts, cereal grain, fire pit, seaweed on rocks, cured meats, vanilla and burnt sugar.
Palate: Medium to full bodied. Round mouthful with tons of texture. Rum influenced at the front with burnt sugar and molasses.
Finish: Orange citrus and peach compliment the peat smoke that meets you in the middle and is perfectly integrated while it walks you along to the briney, coastal finish.
This Scotch takes you on a wild ride with every sip evolving in your mouth.
