Description

Springbank distillery is one of the last surviving producers of Campbeltown Single Malts.

Springbank distillery is the oldest independent, family-owned distillery in Scotland. Legal distillation began in 1828.

The chairman is Hedley Wright, the great, great grandson of John Mitchell, the first legal distiller of Springbank whisky.

Springbank 11 Year Old Local Barley Campbeltown Single Malt Scotch whisky, second in the series of annual releases distilled with barley grown in the Campbeltown region. 2017 limited edition.

There are a few Scottish distilleries that still malt their own barley but Springbank is the only distillery which malts 100% of its own barley, using the traditional floor maltings.

The whole production process: malting, milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturation and bottling, happens on the one site in Campbeltown.

Second in a series of annual releases distilled from Barley grown locally around Campbeltown.

In a similar fashion to the 16 Year Old, this expression is limited to 9,000 bottles and comes bottled at 53.1% ABV.

Tasting Notes

Nose: What an incredible nose! Marmalade and honey starts things off as then comes mineral notes from the Kintyre peninsula. As it opens up, freshly baked bread with sweet notes of sun dried bananas to contrast with salted caramel topping.

Palate: The promise given in the nose continues, a lovely creaminess and sweetness of grapes, custard, honeycomb and marshmallow. This is balanced with salted popcorn and liquorice, and an ever present, hint of peat.

Finisg: There’s a nutty quality about this, almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts as well as an air of indulgence, rich and buttery with an elegant finish that keeps on giving.
