Product Description

A limited release from 2016 finished in first fill Ex-Burgundy red wine casks (Pinot noir grapes) bottled at 53.5% ABV and only 10,260 bottles produced.

Distilled Nov 2003 Bottled May 2016

Nose: Redcurrant jelly, crunchy cranberries with an earthy note and a whiff of an old dunnage warehouse, stewed red plums, rhubarb, subtle smoke, peppery oak, parma ham and ripe fig with aniseed.

Palate: Salted red berries, earthy, leathery, a touch of forest floor, peppery shortbread, redcurrant and rosemary jelly, smoked cured meats, stewed plums & port.

Finish: Dry wine tannins, crunchy red berries, rosemary, aniseed, glace cherry, smoked nougart, tawny port, smoked cheese rinds, long and savoury.

Always highly sought after these wine cask finishes from Springbank and as always natural colour and non chill filtered, a future cult classic this and for me offers something different to the array of cask finishes out there.
