Springbank 21 Year Old marks a celebration of true Victorian whisky production at Scotland’s most traditional distillery. Long established production techniques, together with the knowledge and experience of our craftsmen, are used to malt barley on traditional malting floors and distill this most handcrafted of spirits. It is then filled into high caliber oak casks and matured in our warehouses in Campbeltown until it is judged to be ready. The whisky is then bottled in our bottling hall, making Springbank the only distillery in Scotland which is genuinely able to say that 100% of the process is carried out on-site.
NOSE: Rich sherry notes – juicy plums and rhubarb jam. Hints of heather honey and roasted sugar. Plenty of spices (ginger, pepper) as well as some wood tones.
PALATE: Starts fruity but quickly becomes spicy and sour. Orange peel, liquorice, ginger and cinnamon. A very faint smoke as well.
FINISH: Long, half-sweet, half-dry, on anise, grass and raisins.
