Our favorite Campbeltown distillery is at it again. An 18 year that is matured exclusively in Sherry casks, this hits all the high notes we want with a sweet kick of bass. Bold dried fruits lay the bass with cocoa powder and sweet fruit carrying the tune. A wisp of smoke gives its finish some sweet soul. Best to grab one of the few bottles we received before they're gone. This cask yielded a scant 280 bottles.
Springbank Distillery is unique. It is the oldest independent family owned distillery in Scotland. Founded in 1828 on the site of Archibald Mitchell's illicit still, the Springbank Distillery is now in the hands of his great, great, great grand son, Hedley G. Wright. Owned by Mr. Wright's J&A Mitchell & Co Ltd, Springbank is the only distillery in Scotland to carry out the full production process on the one site. 100% of the traditional floor malting, maturation and bottling is done at the distillery in Campbeltown. It produces the most hand made whisky in Scotland, with traditional production methods being used throughout the process, and human involvement at each and every stage and is the only distillery in Scotland to have never chill-filtered, nor do we add any artificial colourings to any of our single malts. It is the only distillery in Scotland to produce three different single malts, Springbank, Longrow and Hazelburn, using three different production methods.
