Review #708 – Springbank 14yr Bourbon Wood

Review #708 | /r/Scotch Review #240 – Springbank 14yr Bourbonwood

The Schtick: “Released in September 2017, this is a 14 year old single malt from the Springbank distillery in Campbeltown. It was aged in casks that previously held bourbon, which has imparted generous notes of general-vanilla-tastiness to the whisky. A release of 9,000 bottles…” – Master of Malt

Distiller: Springbank

Bottler: Springbank

ABV: 55.8% ABV

Age: 14 Years

Source: Sample

Nose: Honey, dough, vanilla. Faint meatiness, floral apples, pears and toasted almonds.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, no real heat. Lots of allspice, honey, vanilla, caramel and faint fruitiness. Nice smoke presence, some oak and some pepper.

Finish: Long, rich sweetness blends really well with a growing smokiness. No real heat.

Overall: Really nice integration of base spirit, bourbon character and smoke.

Thanks for reading!
