Product Description

A single cask release of 100% Port pipe matured Springbank that only yielded 696 bottles and bottled at natural cask strength and natural colour.

Nose: Salty, earthy red berries (especially cranberry)but the nose takes a while to reveal itself so have some patience! and the colour does not give you much of a rose blush and the port influence is quite subtle at first.Some fruity liquorice and briney black grape here too.

Palate: Pink peppercorns and crunchy red berries with hints of the salty, brine and earthy smoke that Springbank is famous for emerging on a full bodied palate.A malty brown bread cured smoked ham and cranberry sauce sandwich of a Springbank.

Finish: Homemade redcurrant and rosemary jelly, salted cured meat (savoury notes) and earthy pink grapefruit, black grape skin tannin and late peppery spice.

Well balanced mix of classic Springbank flavours and Port wood influence that could have overwhelmed the distillery character after 12 years in Port pipes but doesn't.
