2.5 x Distilled – 2020 release
NOSE: A gentle Kintyre coastal breeze, redolent with damp peat, identifies this as one of Campbeltown’s finest. Fresh orchard fruit, orange zest, heather and honey combine with malt and vanilla notes to offer a warm welcome to Springbank’s flagship malt.
PALATE: Equal measures of complexity and robustness with an oily mouth feel and plenty of spice, pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. The orchard fruit and malt notes from the nose continue, providing balance and character.
FINISH: Sweet salted caramel, toffee and drying peat prolong to round off this signature malt. We in the London Shop think this is the dram thats hard to beat for it’s age and price. Really good whisky.
(LTP) London Tasting Panel
No doubt about this one being a Springbank, its as good as any whisky ever released, A great balance of coastal notes some sweet smoke and soft peat, apples and pears with a little spice and caramel coated nut brittle.
A true classic that every malt fan should have at all times.
