A 9-year-old expression from Springbank which has been matured in a rather interesting way. After spending four years in refill bourbon barrels, the single malt Scotch whiskey is aged for five further years in Barolo wine casks. This experiment has paid off, as it is a very tasty whiskey indeed! Barolo Wood Finish (70cl, 54.7%)
Nose: Sweeties galore! Pear drops, chocolate buttons and chunks of marzipan.
Palate: Jammy red wine from the cask, with some coastal notes wafting in and earthy tones underneath.
Finish: Slightly peated on the finish.
Overall: A whiskey of many minds, all of them brilliant.
