Springbank distillery is the oldest independent, family-owned distillery in Scotland. Legal distillation began in 1828. The chairman is Hedley Wright, the great, great grandson of John Mitchell, the first legal distiller of Springbank whisky.
Nose: A very complex nose on this one. Sweet fruits; citrus, peaches and orange zest at first, with a gentle, peaty earthy aroma reminiscent of dunnage warehouses emerging later.
Palate: Rich and very, very tasty. Great balance. Dark chocolate, creamy coffee and gingerbread to the fore, followed by rhubarb and vanilla custard.
Finish: Long and sweet, a hint of typical Longrow peat smoke combined with more chocolate and some dried fruits.
