Gold Medal: 2014 – Campbeltown Single Malt 12 Years and Under (World Whisky Awards)
Official tasting notes:
Nose: A gentle Kintyre coastal breeze, redolent with damp peat, identifies this as one of Campbeltown’s finest. Fresh orchard fruit, orange zest, heather and honey combine with malt and vanilla notes to offer a warm welcome to Springbank’s flagship malt.
Palate: Equal measures of complexity and robustness with an oily mouthfeel and plenty of spice, pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. The orchard fruit and malt notes from the nose continue, providing balance and character.
Finish: Sweet salted caramel, toffee and drying peat prolong to round off this signature malt.
