Oh Springbank... One of the most lovingly crafted spirits in Scotland... with the worst (or one of) track record of using sulphered casks. But clearly, look at the scores and more importantly the reviews...no one seems to mind! I do not trust any modern Springbank that uses a sherry cask, unless I can try it first.
The sulphur isn’t too outrageous here, dissipating with time; although still present. Notes of Hickory smoked bacon, cranberries and blackberries on the nose. Ash, berries and honey on the palate. The finish lingers on red and black berries, ash and cold smoke, bacon jam - sulphur throughout.
