Springbank, 12YO Cask Strength (700ml)
Springbank, 12YO Cask Strength
One of the most anticipated releases in the Scotch whisky calendar, Springbank’s annual, all-natural 12 year old never fails to impress. By all reports, this is one you’re not wanting to miss. Unfortunately the allocation for Australia is miniscule - buy one and you'll wish you had a second.
This is the annual release of the Springbank 12 YO Cask Strength, bottled in January 2020. It has been matured in 35 % sherry casks and 65 % bourbon casks.
Nose: Fresh floral notes, white and green wine gums, wood chippings, candied ginger and black liquorice.
Palate: Initially rich & malty; spiced biscuit and salted caramel shortcake with a beautiful oily and chewy mouthfeel. Salted pretzels, Iberico ham and classic Springbank smoke follow.
Finish: The smoke continues alongside sea salt dark chocolate, freshly ground coffee and lemon sherbet.
