A limited edition 30 Year Old Blended Scotch crafted by J&A Mitcell owners of the Springbank distillery. This expression has been bottled to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn 1314.
Only 2014 bottles are in existence and is a blend of 75% malt and 25% grain.
Nose: Toffee apple, pears in syrup, old wood, honey on toast, marmalade and a whiff of salted caramel and coconut.
Palate: Honey nut flapjacks, sea salted caramel, some earthy, brine notes, leather, musky oak, sadalwood spice, coconut and oily lime.
Finish: Waxy lime, coconut water, brine, salted caramel, honeycomb and sappy vanilla.
I would guess a fair amount of Springbank in this blend and one to enjoy for fans of the Campbeltown style. In the words of Mel Gibson in Braveheart "they may take my freedom but they may not take my whisky!" or something like that!
