Springbank 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - 2022 Second Release
Collectors note: Springbank's labels almost always arrive with minor wearing and markings, most often to the top of the front labels. This is unavoidable. If you are likely to be disappointed by minor label scuffing, we recommend you don't buy these whiskies.
The 2022s were reportedly runs of around 1300 bottles with maturation slightly in favour of sherry wood. Judging by the packaging which changed slightly between releases, the review below presumably refers to the first edition, but we'd expect the whiskies to be very similar regardless. 46% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
Other reviews... [2022 bottling tasted] Colour: pale gold. Nose: ahhh, 90s Springbank and this age! A stunningly coastal, medicinal and mineral profile that incorporates brittle waxes, beach pebbles, herbal cough syrup and various medicinal tinctures. Also things like sandalwood, a very gentle and crisp peat smoke and lemon infused olive oil. Just a totally gorgeous profile that drips with Springbank distillery character. Love this nose. Mouth: excellent arrival, with a lovely oily texture that engages the full palate. Medicines, waxes and herbal notes once again, but also drier notes of salty liquorice, mineral oil, tiger balm, tiny sooty inflections and pure old school cough syrups. The sherry comes through slightly more clearly here with some leather, salty vibes, but overall the balance is struck beautifully and places the distillate DNA very centrally. Finish: long, mineral and herbal, a lot of soft medicinal and waxy vibes and trailing, chewy peat smoke in the aftertaste. Comments: very singular and totally brilliant, soulful Springbank! 92 points. - whiskyfun.com
