The Springbank Distillery is one of the last remaining in Campbeltown, from its heyday of over 30 active distilleries producing quality whiskies in the 19th century. Located on the Kintyre Peninsula and drawing water from Crosshill Loch, Springbank is now owned by J & A Mitchell & Co. Springbank produces three core ranges, Springbank proper, which are usually medium peated; Longrow, a highly peated style, and Hazelburn, a triple-distilled, non-peated whisky.
This release of Springbank's Cask Strength 15 Year Old single malt has been matured exclusively in ex-rum casks and bottled at 51% ABV. Tropical aromas of coconut, banana and pineapple fill the nose, alongside toasted marshmallows, sticky toffee pudding and rich peat smoke. The palate offers notes of tropical fruit salad, whipped cream, meringues, Crème Brulee, toffee apples and pecan pie, balanced by delicate peat and rich earthy notes.
