Springbank Distillery is the oldest independent, family-owned distillery in Scotland.
There are a few Scottish distilleries that still malt their own barley but Springbank is the only distillery that malts 100% of it's own barley, using the traditional floor maltings.
The whole production process: malting, milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturation and bottling, happens on the one site in Campbeltown. This is unique in Scotland.
Nose: Sweet and syrupy from the outset, the Springbank character is immediately prominent. Hints of honeycomb, treacle sponge and ginger nut fuse with a fruity, strawberry undertone. Aromas of parma violet and raisins develop overtime.
Palate: Chopped hazelnuts and liquorice predominate the subtle smokiness from the peat. The maple syrup sweetness from the nose follows through, with a touch of wild berries and blackberries.
Finish: A creamy, velvety finish with a salty note. Wood shavings, burnt embers and milk chocolate round off this malt.
