Springbank Distillery, Campbeltown
Springbank 21 Year Old 2020 Release Single Malt
This is the 2020 release of the 21 year old Springbank. Campbeltown whisky of this age is particularly rare to come by nowadays.
This batch was sourced from 30% bourbon casks, 30% rum casks, 25% sherry casks and 15% port casks. Bottled at 46% and with only 3300 bottles in the batch.
Nose: There'a a rich sweetness to this edition, a combination of demerara sugar, orange rind and smooth milk.
Palate: Mouth coating and oily in texture with immediate dunnage warehouse and coastal influences coming through. It is lightly peated and less sweet in taste than on the nose, nicely balanced.
Finish: The finish is long and rich with dried fruit flavours coming to the fore from the port and sherry casks. Raisins followed by roasted coffee beans and a lasting note of bung cloth. A true old-style Springbank dram.
