Description

Springbank Claret Wood 70cl 54.4%ABV

Matured: 7yrs refill bourbon, 3yrs fresh claret, 2yrs re-charred casks



Colour: Mahogany



Nose: At first thick and rich syrup nose with notes of honey, fruits, figs and dates. Strong notes of fizzy cola bottles and winegums. A small hint of varnish towards the end.



Palate: A fantastically fruity and sweet dram. Despite a thick oily nose it is surprisingly light on the palate, caramel sweet but with a nice reminder of salt. It gives away notes of sweet apple tart.



Finish: A long fruity whisky that leaves you with a light, dry flavour of chilli peppers on your lips.
