A bottle of the well-established mauve-packaged 18 Year Old Springbank. The multi-award-winning Campbeltown single malt has been matured in ex-bourbon casks, so expect a big, coastal, oily flavour from this one.
Nose: Toasted bananas, honey and bakewell tarts with coastal hints. Quite oily.
Palate: Big, spicy and gutsy, with notes of chilli, pine, citrus, aniseed and rich fruits.
Finish: Long, salty, chocolate caramels with hints of smoky fruit.
