Springbank 12 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 6 Campbeltown single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in 70% sherry / 30% bourbon casks. Very popular bottling - limited release of 9,000 bottles.
Nose: Very rich and lush with strong toffee and caramel notes to begin with. The nose then develops to really thick treacle with heavy notes of marmalade. This whisky has a really "meaty" nose with some hints of cinnamon and smoke.
Palate: An amazingly full bodied whisky, rich with a thick and oily texture. It has a very rich taste of oranges, tangerines and clementines as well as a hint of cocoa.
Finish: Sweet and very rich, long finish with a hint of smoke.

Springbank produces three different types of single malt whisky Hazelburn which is non-peated and triple distilled, Longrow which is highly peated and double distilled and Springbank which is medium peated and partially triple distilled having been distilled two and a half times.
