Springbank 21 Year Old 2020 Release
Extremely limited in quantity and always sought after by Campbeltown fans, this is a rare treat - mellow old malt with a gentle smoky edge.
This edition of Springbank 21 Year Old has been matured in a combination of 70% rum casks and 30% bourbon casks and is bottled at 46%.
Springbank's official tasting notes say...
Nose: A burst of heather and freshly mowed grass followed by honey, pear skin and wood shavings. Hints of butter; cheesecake, fresh cream and digestive biscuit.
Taste: Elegant and gentle. Butterscotch and vanilla, sugar cane and molasses develop as the influence from the rum casks engulfs the palate with apricots, peaches and paprika.
Finish: A soft smokiness is present in the background. Toffee apples, raisins and oat biscuits emerge. In the foreground; peppercorn, almonds and apricot jam are prominent.
