Review #336 – Springbank Burgundy 12yrs
Whiskey Network Review #336 | /r/Scotch Review #145 – Springbank 12yr Burgundy , 108.2pf | 54.1% ABV
Mash: Single Malt (Barley)
ABV: 54.1% ABV | 108.2pf
Maturation: ex-Burgundy casks
Source: /r/scotchswap sample
Nose: Sweet vanilla, sherry, mega jammy, raspberry, cream, strawberry
Taste: Thick mouthfeel, very sweet raspberry jam, apricot, strawberry, fig, cocoa
Finish: Long, complex and thick. Sweet, and then the mild smoke rolls in. Very good.
Overall: I really like this – Springbank is a fantastic producer and their finishes are some of the best in the business. I’m giving this a Rank 8. It can’t touch the 14yr Fino I had a while back but it makes a great effort.
Thanks for reading!
