700ml // 52.7% ABV
This is Springbank spent six years in refill Bourbon casks then six years in fresh Calvados casks. Calvados is a French spirit distilled from fermented apple juice.
Green apples, pears and limes arrive on the nose first followed by rhubarb and grapes on the palate with a hint of brine and peat smoke. The finish is long and robust with notes of gooseberries and stewing citrus fruits. This Springbank shows off the Calvados cask well and has a lovely oiliness on the palate.
