The new Springbank 12yo CS has been bottled at 57.1% ABV and was matured in 65% Bourbon Casks + 35% Sherry casks.
Nose: Initially you can smell the refreshing herbs of oregano and lavender. This is followed by the sweetness of marzipan, honeycomb and fizzy sweets. In a nutshell, there’s an aroma of freshly baked donuts and orange marmalade.
Palate: It’s a lovely, warm butterscotch sponge with chantilly cream, as well as treacle, orange rind and salted pretzels. Then the typical Springbank coastal note of sea salt.
Finish: Velvety and refined finish with salted milk chocolate and Maraschino cherries.
