It's another Cask Strength release from Springbank! This 12 Year Old was drawn from a quartet of casks types - just under half of the whisky was aged in sherry casks, with 25% in bourbon, 25% in Burgundy wine casks, and 5% rested in Port casks. The result is a rich, sweet and earthy whisky, weighing in at 56.1% ABV.
Cigar box and hints of ash, with oily orange peel, polished oak and stewed orchard fruit, swiftly followed by balsamic touches and red fruit.
Cooked forest fruit, caramel chocolate and burnt brown sugar alongside more zesty citrus.
Old leather and dry spices, rounded off by jammy berries and a whisp of smoke.
