    Peat to finish, the whisky equivalent of having an after-dinner cigar. This is the only Springbank I procured at the show. The rest were too darn expensive.

    N: If tasting blind, I’d be thinking Islay over Campbeltown. The phenols from this Peat Bog transport me to a country fayre. Sweet, country/farmy and oily is the main character profile.
    T&F: As is often the Springbank way, this isn’t a complicated whisky, it’s a spot on drinker mind you! I note the quality of the illusionary dryness that isn’t actually dry. We also discuss whether this is nearer the profile of a Longrow than Springbank [given the heavy peatiness]. Eventually, we are satisfied that this is a Springbank through and through, albeit a heavier peated example. Without any excessive engineering in sight [as expected], it’s impossible not to become a little emotional over these ‘au naturel’ malts.

    C: This would surely make any whisky fan into a Springbank convert?
