This limited release Springbank was aged for 14 years in a Bourbon and Rum Barrels and finished for 3 years in a Fresh Madeira Cask. Bottled at cask strength.
Nose: Sweet and jammy. There are aromas of parma violets, boiled sweets and buttery tablet with a note of fennel: sticky ginger cake, strawberry jam with a tang of grapefruit and lemon sherbet. There is a familiar coastal saltiness on the nose.
Palate: The briny, maritime characteristics follow through with light peat smoke. Sticky toffee pudding, caramelised sugar and a spicy, herbal hint of black cracked pepper and tea leaves.
Finish: The finish is nutty, smooth and slightly woody—notes of walnuts and pecans with subtle peat smoke to the end.
