Springbank 1965 - 1995 Society Cask No. 27.32

This is a bottle from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, an exclusive club that bottles special single malt whiskies. The number 27 is the number that stands for the distillery and the number after the dot indicates the number of bottlings it is from this distillery that have been bottled from this distillery. So this particular one, coded 27.32, is the 32 bottling of Springbank that they bottled. Distilled in 1965 and bottled in 1995 at cask strength of 51.9%

Tasting note

Nose

This is reminiscent of old Jamaican molasses rum and old distilleries. Pipe tobacco, old leather, furniture polish, tar, dirty ports and more delicious old age scents. Like being on an old Indian motorbike that leaks some oil and uses a lot of petrol. 

Taste

Walnuts left just too long, balsamic vinegar, aged madeira and more flavours like that. Again, the flavour of petrol pump and garage, old library and chimney. Hint of cherries if we do have to mention something fruity, maybe some dates and plums, but mostly a lovely powerful nice dirty flavour.

Finish

Rancio, do you have that in whisky too? We do in this old Springbank. History in the glass!

More about Springbank Distillery

Springbank distillery has a rich history dating back to the year 1828, when it was officially founded by the Reid family in Campbelltown, located on Scotland's Kintyre Peninsula. After several transfers within the family, the distillery came into the hands of the Mitchell family, a name still associated with Springbank today.

The distillery is special because it is one of the last remaining producers in Campbelltown, which was once known as the 'whisky capital' of the world with more than 30 distilleries. Springbank is known for its traditional approach to whisky production, with many processes still carried out by hand.

Springbank is one of the few distilleries in Scotland that still goes through every aspect of the production process on site: from malting the barley to bottling. It produces three different types of Scotch single malt whisky: Springbank, Longrow and Hazelburn, each with its own unique distilling style and flavour profile.

In contemporary times, Springbank is known for its high-quality whiskies and its unconventional, independent approach. It employs a classic method of twice-distilling with a part triple-distilling for some variants. In addition, the use of locally grown barley and in-house floor maltings is something that makes their whisky unique.
