Top 10 Whiskies of 2019 – No. 4
My choice for No. 4, released late Summer 2019, this is the latest cask strength offering from Springbank distillery.
Always a popular release, this Campbeltown malt has been matured for 12 years before being bottled at 57.1% vol.
Limited to 1 per customer.
Nose: A fruity and nutty combination; cherries, apricot jam, pistachios and toasted oats. Salted caramel and marzipan begin to emerge.
Palate: Sweet and delicious, Scottish tablet, prunes and honey. The classic Campbeltown style develops; sea salt and a light smoke coat the mouth.
Finish: A long and warming finish with honeycomb, orange marmalade andliquorice closely followed by Demerara sugar, almonds, oats andprunes.
