"Released in September 2017, this is a 14 year old single malt from the Springbank distillery in Campbeltown. It was aged in casks that previously held bourbon, which has imparted generous notes of general-vanilla-tastiness to the whisky. A release of 9,000 bottles..." - Master of Malt
Honey, dough, vanilla. Faint meatiness, floral apples, pears and toasted almonds.
Medium mouth feel, no real heat. Lots of allspice, honey, vanilla, caramel and faint fruitiness. Nice smoke presence, some oak and some pepper.
Long, rich sweetness blends really well with a growing smokiness. No real heat.
Really nice integration of base spirit, bourbon character and smoke.
