- The original Springbank whisky has been distilled legally on the site of the present distillery since 1828, and probably illicitly since well before then! Known and loved amongst whisky enthusiasts the world over, Springbank is produced using lightly-peated barley and a unique two-and-a-half-times distillation. This gives the whisky a character all of its own, making it stand out as a must-have dram on anyone's shelf. Produced using the most traditional of production techniques, from floor malting all the way through to the bottling stage, Springbank can best be described as a 'hand-made' single malt. The classic Springbank complex, rich character can be found throughout the various bottlings available: the 10 year old is matured mostly in bourbon casks, emphasising the distillery's character; the 100 proof 10 year old is considered by many to be Springbank in it's purest form with its salty, briny flavour; the 15 year old, matured in sherry casks, is a fine after-dinner dram full of sweet, rich flavours like dark chocolate and raisins.
The nose is big-bodied with oaked aridity. The peat is present and quite pungent with an earthen rootiness. Notes of exotic fruits and a hint of salinity. The palate is full-bodied with a good helping of cereal sweetness. There is a richness to the peat, with a dark nuttiness and whirling smoke. The finish is long and crisp with a coastal tang and a trailing peat with oaked dryness.
