Introducing the latest releases from Springbank Distillers, arriving in shops this week!
The first is the 2015 version of our Springbank Green, following on from last year's 12 year old, bourbon matured version. The new release is 13 years old, was again produced using organic barley and has been fully matured in sherry casks. It has been bottled at 46% and there are 9,000 bottles available for worldwide distribution. The RRP for the Springbank Green is £60.00 the tasting notes are:
Nose: Sweet cereal notes are accompanied with raisin butter, apple crumble, kiwi fruit and turkish delight.
Palate: The palate is fruity with raisins and orange zest to the fore. Marzipan, vanilla and soft sherry notes are also present.
Finish: A long, medium dry finish with classic Springbank sweet salty notes, along with hints of bung cloth and fig rolls.
The second new release is the 2015 edition of our famous Springbank 25 year old. This whisky has been matured in a combination of sherry and bourbon casks before being married together in port casks. It has been bottled at 46% and is limited to only 900 bottles worldwide. The RRP of the Springbank 25 year old is £350.00 and the tasting notes are:
Nose: The nose is light and fruity with notes of red apples and blueberries. Honeycomb and milk chocolate provide a sweet creaminess, which combines well with traditional dunnage warehouse aromas.
Palate: Very well balanced with notes of toffee apple, brandy butter, liquorice, milk chocolate and honeycomb.
Finish: Long and bold with light spices and black pepper immediately recognisable against a backdrop of dried peat. Butterscotch follows up at the end.
