This awesome vintage Campbeltown malt was distilled in 1971 at Springbank, matured for 32 long years in refilled sherry casks and bottled in September 2004 with an outturn of just 2,400 bottles.
This very rare malt is highly rated by the well regarded Serge Valentin of WhiskyFun, who awarded it an excellent 91 points.
Matured in re-fill sherry casks, bottled last September. Colour: astonishingly light (pale straw).
Nose: very waxy, grandma’s cupboard, vanilla, natural varnish. Hints of spices (cinnamon) and flowers (lavender). The whole is still quite fresh and so nicely balanced. A little coconut developing after a while, but perhaps that’s the mind’s work.
Mouth: sweet and quite oily, on resin and propolis. Really a great mouthfeel. Some bitter orange and a little Turkish delight. Quite complex! The finish is long and bold, on orange marmalade. An excellent new-old official Springbank! 91 points.
