Official Tasting Notes Springbank 25 Year Old
Nose – Sweet and delicate on the nose, with notes of raspberry coulis. A mustiness develops reminiscent of dunnage warehouses and bung cloth.
Palate – Initially smooth and syrupy on the palate, opening up to notes of sultanas, bananas and demerara sugar crystals.
Finish – The coastal influence presents itself in as saltiness in the finish, along with hints of barley water and grassy notes.
For a period, Campbeltown was the undisputed Whisky Capital of the World, boasting over 30 distilleries operating simultaneously at its peak. Locally available peat, barley and coal, coupled with a quick steamship service to Glasgow meant this thriving industry lasted into the early 20th Century. Alas; ultimately (and perhaps inevitably) it proved unsustainable, and by 1935 the bubble had well and truly burst, with only Springbank and Glen Scotia distilleries remaining.
The family owned Springbank is unique in that it remains the only distillery in Scotland where 100% of the production process is carried out on site, and while it produces three distinct styles (in Springbank, Longrow, and Hazelburn), its eponymous Springbank expression still accounts for the lion’s share of production. A medium peated, two and a half times distilled spirit, Springbank is complex, robust and never boring!
