Springbank 12 Year Cask Strength (Batch 17)
Peated Single Malt
Springbank // Campbeltown, Scotland
A semi-annual release from the Springbank Distillery, one of the last family-owned distilleries in Scotland. Beginning in 2010, Springbank began releasing two vattings per year (with one exception) of a twelve-year-old cask strength malt, aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks at around a 60:40 or 70:30 ratio (depends on the vatting). This Batch #17--which isn't listed anywhere on bottle--has the latter ratio. Whisky nerds and Springbank-lovers keep track of the different batches by the ABV, which varies slightly with each new iteration. It is non-chillfiltered and has no added color. This batch is 56.2% ABV and was released in the UK in August 2018 with other markets/countries to follow.
