Springbank is a rare breed in the world of Scottish distilleries.
It is still family owned and they still perform every step in the whisky making process, including bottling their own malts.

Springbank 19 Year Old Cask 482
(Master of Malt)
|Nose: Sherried, bourbony flavours coupled with charred wood.
Palate: Strong smokey peat, caramel dessert wrapped up in lovely sweetness.
Finish: Surprisingly sweet with lots of flavoursome spice.
Overall: A complex dram. You think it’s going to be heavily smokey and peated but it suddenly gives way to honeyed sweetness with a whole gamut of flavours inbetween. An extraordinary malt!
Many thanks to Master Of Malt for this sample.
