The 2018 release of the iconic Springbank 21 year old is double cask matured (70% Ex-Rum Casks & 30% Ex-Bourbon)
Only 3700 bottles released and as always bottled at natural colour and non-chill filtered.
Lightly peated 12-15ppm and the 21 year old is widely regarded as being one of the worlds truly great single malts and a must buy every year for Springbank fans.
Nose: Nougart, coffee fondant, toasted coconut, milky fudge, banana, roasted pineapple, creme brulee tops, subtle coastal, salty, singed barley smoke and sappy vanillin oak and some earthy-boggy notes.
Palate: Elegant delivery with the Rum cask influence to the fore..pineapple chunks, rum and raisin fudge, caramelised demorera sugar, banana chips, toasted coconut, salted cashews, charred chocolate, lime and soft smoke mingling with the classic Springbank earthy/brine notes but done ever so subtly here.
Finish: Salted vanilla fudge, banana chips, rum soaked raisins, toasted coffee grinds, milky ginger latte.
An elegant and ever so well poised and balanced Springbank, no denying the Rum cask element has added some extra sweet and spicy fruit to this ever so reliably excellent annual release. The wow factor is in its subtlety, everything in the right place!
