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.

Tasting Notes

"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. "
