We do not comment on the packaging, do we? Springbank has always done things a little differently, and success has proved them right. On the nose, faint peat smoke, mineral freshness and rich sherry notes combine with nuts, concrete and odors of an old TV screen. The palate takes you on a journey through the flavor wheel: sweet, sour, bitter, salty and savory, it's all there. A real shapeshifter, both complex and well-balanced, culminating in a long, substantial and semidry finish. At only 12 years of age, this cask strength whisky could hardly be any better!
