An independently bottled Springbank from Claxton's, aged for 22 years in a single bourbon hogshead. It was distilled on 10 May 1996 and bottled in 2018. It's fairly rare to see indie Springbanks these days and they are almost always great when they do appear. This is a good'un – classic softly smoky character with a thin of farmyard earthiness balanced by orchard and tropical fruit. Top stuff.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    • Nose:

      Crisp green apples, green apple skin with rocky minerality at first. Ripe pear, sweet white grapes and much more.

    • Palate:

      Clean and tangy. Natural fruit like sweetness with lychees and melon. Dark chocolate, quinine tonic and bell peppers.

    • Finish:

      Long and complex. Smokier minerality typical of the distillery. Grapefruit, cocoa beans, and more apples.
