700ml // 40.0% ABV
A 13 Year Old Springbank matured in Cask 123, which as you may have gathered from the ‘slightly’ dark hue, was indeed a sherry cask. Bottled as part of Duncan Taylor’s Dimensions range, this is a non-chill filtered, cask strength release with natural colour.
Nose: Eccles cakes, apple pie. Dark caramel and granary toast.
Palate: Chewy dates and dried apricots, sultanas and antique furniture.
Finish: Comforting and smoky with a little spice.
Overall: Reassuring and fairly robust, an enjoyable single cask Campbeltown whisky.
