The second tasting from That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s range is the Springbank – Batch 1 from Master Of Malt. I’m glad it says Batch 1 as I’d hate to think this was the last we would see of such a tasty malt!
This one contains the highly sought after Springbank malt whisky. A rare single malt from the Kintyre Peninsula which offers smoke, spice and a hint of sea salt. Matured in bourbon and sherry casks its light colour belies the richness of its character.
As usual, the label offers us a glimpse of the quirky side of whisky life featuring Caskstrength.net’s Neil and Joel operating Springbank’s old Porteus Mill.
Springbank – Batch 1
(That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
|Nose: Touch of smokey wood mixed with sweet aromas.
Palate: Only mildy oily, very, very spicy, almost spikey! Sweet, like sugar crystals dissolving on the tongue.
Finish: Fiery peppery rush tempered with sultana sweetness.
Overall: The taste of this just goes on and on (until you take the next sip!) It is punchy, warming and very moreish!
Many thanks to Master Of Malt for this sample.
