The Springbank 15 years single malt is an intense Scotch with a surprisingly sweet nose and powerful peat notes following on the tongue. It is distilled two and a half times, a mix of double and triple burned distillate. This high quality spirit is then matured extremely long in sherry casks, where it develops an impressive range of sweet and fruity flavors. With its 46% of alcohol it is also still pleasantly strong and with a long-lasting finish.

Springbank 15 years Single Malt

The Springbank 15 years single malt is an intense Scotch with a surprisingly sweet nose and powerful peat notes following on the tongue. It is distilled two and a half times, a mix of double and triple burned distillate. This high quality spirit is then matured extremely long in sherry casks, where it develops an impressive range of sweet and fruity flavors. With its 46% of alcohol it is also still pleasantly strong and with a long-lasting finish.

Springbank is run by the fifth generation of the Mitchell family who still manages the distillery today and preserved most of the old technologies and experiences about whisky production. It is one of the few distilleries that is still producing its own malt with the traditional floor malting methods.

There are three brands produced at this distillery. Beside of the brand “Springbank”, also “Hazelburn” and “Longrow” are distinct single malts made at Springbank.

Based in Campbeltown,  once called the ‘whisky capital of the world’ and a well-known smuggling center for the most part of the 17th and 18th century. With a rich heritage and whisky history, it is located in the dividing of the firth of Clyde and the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast of Scotland. The swirling sea breeze is found at their whiskys. as well as a rich variety of other flavors, coming from their various cask compositions.

    Never understood why this one is not more advertised! What a perfect combination of sweet fruity aroma with a slight peat in the background.
    Interesting that you hardly find any peat in the nose, just later on the tongue. Very interesting malt! Must try!
