Springbank 15 Year
Peated Single Malt
Springbank // Campbeltown, Scotland
Perhaps because Springbank Distillery is family owned rather than being in the hands of a large corporation, they can be a bit more experimental. This distillery employs three different recipes and ergo three different names of single malts: Hazelburn, Longrow, and Springbank. They vary in the number of times they are distilled and the different levels of peat for their malts. Springbank is distilled 2 1/2 times and is lightly peated.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
Cask Type100% ex sherry
"Aged entirely in ex sherry casks, the fruity and floral aroma really come through. There is a drying wood tannin that is detected along with burnt wood. Peanut brittle and salt water taffy are the sweet and salty qualities that mark this bottling. "
