This single cask Springbank has been bottled exclusively for Springbank's Alberta importer Gold Medal Marketing. Just 162 bottles of this 19-year-old, 1998 vintage single cask. Matured in a First Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel and bottled at a cask strength of 57.4%. It is pricey, but it is spectacular!
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: salty, vanilla and peanut butter icing sugars, creamy, toasty and subtly oaky; oh wow, this is classic old Springbank... here come the apricots, fatty oils and soft doughy oak tones; a hint of peaty and juicy tropical fruits: mango and papaya.
Palate: round, oily, creamy and decadent and malty; soft oily peat rolls over the palate like a wave; more vanilla and peanut butter icing; dried apricots with kiwi and mango; still salty (salted caramel) with some elegant smooth smoke and fatty-buttery oils; a touch of old engine oil just to round things out.
Finish: big, round and low; it drips from the palate, coating it and leaving a creamy, decadent warming sensation.
Comment: this is very well matured older Springbank; hard to believe it is just 19 years of age, it tastes much older!
Evan's Tasting Note
Nose: Peat and dryer sheets, lemon jujubes and just-baled hay, leaves on the ground in autumn, salt, brine, peaches & cream, sunflower seeds, almond butter, white chocolate and ripe bananas.
Palate: Salty, oily and rich with sweet & spicy peat notes. Toasted almonds, white grape juice, oak spices, salted caramels & milk chocolate, honeydew melons, banana chips, black pepper and sweet chilis. Hints of minerality with lemonade and vanilla.
Finish: Spiciness slowly fades leaving peat, seawater, juicy pears and citrus with a slight nutty edge.
Comment: Awesome Single Cask Springbank. Does this Campbeltown distillery have ANY bad casks right now?
