Springbank 17 Year Old 1993 Vintage Campbeltown single malt Scotch whisky. Single sherry butt bottled November 2013 by Hunter Laing & Co. for the Old & Rare series. 270 bottles.
A full bodied nose of plums and dates long married together. The first sip brings sweet sultanas, followed by the nutty hint of a sherry wood influence. The finish is long and dry, with a warm, sherried mouthfeel.
Springbank Distillery was established in 1828 in Campbeltown at the foot of the Mull of Kintyre on the west coast of Scotland. 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. Barley is spread across traditional malting floors at Springbank where it germinates and is then dried on the perforated floor of the malt kiln. Springbank Distillery welcomes visitors and offers distillery tours.
