TASTING NOTE: Located in Campbeltown and founded in 1828, Springbank claims to be the oldest independent family owned distillery in Scotland. The full production process is carried out entirely on the one site from traditional floor malting to maturation and bottling. The distillery has never chill-filtered nor added any artificial colourings to their single malts. Aged 60 per cent in bourbon casks, the rest in sherry, Springbank is amber gold in colour with a suggestion of maritime breezes in its bouquet. Intense, with good depth, it has intriguing brown spices, vanilla and bourbon infused oak on the palate. There's a lovely tang of the sea in the rounded malty finish.
