CAMPBELTOWN
Longrow 18yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$264.00
   
The long awaited third release of Springbank Distillers current, oldest whisky. Once again, allocations are very small and it has totally sold out overseas. Overall, it's a remarkable whisky. Remarkable for its bright, almost luminescent colour (a very non-reactive American oak cask me thinks), remarkable for its very clean, lean, lemon citrus dominated nose. Shane reckons theres a hint of earthiness (this will be the peat) in there as well plus a good dose of creamy American oak. On the palate, its also remarkable for its initial feistiness but then the door opens up to let you into one seriously long, luxurious palate, where nothing is out of place. Malt, oak, alcohol and citrus fruit flavours are in complete harmony. I dont think Ive seen a Longrow just so pure. In a word: zesty. In another: breathtaking. Whiskyfun rates it at 92pts with the comment, "extremely high quality. I cant see why Id come up with another score."

 
Longrow 1997 14yo Burgundy Wood
700ml 56.10%
  Ret
$420.00
   
Here's my original notes from 2012!! "Now this has to be heaven for me...a single malt, peat and my all time favourite red, Burgundy...all in one package! This is the latest (2012) wood finish malt from J&A Mitchell. Yet to try it, so over to the the distillery... "Nose: Incredibly rich with wonderful aromas streaming out of the glass. American club soda, creamy chocolate eclairs, butter toffee popcorn, chocolate orange and cloves mix nicely with the dry smoke that is Longrow. Palate: Like a comfortable feather duvet, this whisky wraps itself around your palate enriching it with flavours of sweet treacle, creamy caramel sauce and highland toffee. It is incredibly oily yet spicy, similar to freshly ground mixed peppercorns, the smoke subtly evident throughout. Finish: Like a cloud of sweet smoke, lingering for a long while." Casks: 11 years refill bourbon, 3 years fresh burgundy hogsheads. Pic indicative only.

 
Longrow 7yo Gaja Barolo
700ml 55.80%
  Ret
$420.00
   
As Dave Lister would say, "brutal". Take a very young, highly peated, massively alcoholic Longrow and age it in used Angelo Gaja (the father of the modern Italian wine industry) French oak barriques that have been used for his famous Barolo wine (nebbiolo) and what you get is a blatantly aggressive, densely smokey and very meaty malt. And does it work? Wow does it work!! Breathtaking. 5 1/2 years in ex Bourbon oak, 1 1/2 years in ex Euro oak from Anjelo Gaja.

 
Longrow Peated NAS
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$119.00
   
Brand new and what a beauty it is. Lean, clean and loaded up with peat. This whisky is intense and long with a hint of citrus fruits. As one pundit it put it, "A great entry-level offering from Longrow perfect for Islay fans looking for something a bit different." Bravo Longrow!

 
Springbank 10yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$109.00
   
From the highly individual and delightfully idiosyncratic Springbank Distillers comes their flagship 2.8 distilled, lightly peated whisky 12-15ppm, Springbank. The basic 10yo is back to its very best old self: this malt is bright and pleasingly salty, ex bourbon cask matured whisky with noticeable seaside & citrus fruit characters, along with a degree of complexity with balance, malt, oak, nutmeg & cinnamon & a salty tingle on the end. Buxton's 101.

 
Springbank 11yo Madeira Wood
700ml 55.10%
  Ret
$360.00
   
The 2009 release of the famous Wood Finishes range from Springbank. And this is a very classy edition to this already venerable range. 11 years in Madeira casks accounts sweetness on the nose, with notes of butter shortbread, demerara sugar, and chocolate orange. Look a little deeper and the astounding complexity of the flavours from the Madeira casks become apparent. On the palate there's plenty of brown sugar, hot chocolate, a hint of mint and butter and the gentlest hint of peat spice. Nice one!

 
Springbank 12yo Calvados
700ml 52.70%
  Ret
POA
     
This is from the 2012 Wood Expression release from Springbank. It's a six and six....six years bourbon, six years in "fresh" Calvados (French apple brandy) casks. In their words, "Nose - The influence of the Calvados casks is immediately apparent, with notes of green apples, citrus fruits and sweet toffee showing themselves in the beginning. Vanilla essence, pears and some gentle spice come later. Palate - A very lively dram at cask strength. Black pepper and rhubarb give way to demerara sugar, green grapes, a touch of cinnamon and a little bit of home-made fudge. This is an oily whisky for sure. Finish - Orange marmalade, gooseberries and a pleasant, dry, peatiness leave a lasting impression."

 
Springbank 12yo Claret Wood
700ml 54.40%
  Ret
$360.00
   
The release and was thought to be the last in Springbank's Wood Finish range. As Whisky Notes have said : "This is a Springbank limited release, distilled in May of 1997. It was matured in refill bourbon barrels, then finished in fresh claret (Bordeaux) casks for 3 years and then another 2 years in re-charred casks (to smooth out the wine influence)." This is a very tasty, in fact a very bright Springer without too much direct wine influence. The nose is aromatic while the distinct taste of dark cherries, Springbank's saltiness and a hint of gritty wood tannins make for a mighty fine dram. Here's what Ryan Marshman said, "Find one at any cost, then consume somewhere comfortable and dark, whilst listening to some Brian Jonestown Massacre. Bliss. Score: 96"

 
Springbank 13yo Green Sherry Casks
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$200.00
   
The new for 2016 release of Springbank's organic barley malt and now a year older. To be certified organic, the oak had to be new. With Springbank, this was not going to happen. And bravo for the sherry casks! From WhiskyNotes, "A nicely sherried variation on last year�s Green 12yo. It�s definitely less austere this time, with more fruity roundness. More towards the 18 Year Old profile." While the distillery describes it as, "The palate is fruity with raisins and orange zest to the fore. Marzipan, vanilla and soft sherry notes are also present."

 
Springbank 14yo Bourbon Wood
700ml 55.80%
  Ret
$169.00
   
The last time Springbank released a Bourbon Wood was in 2003, so welcome back old friend. As you could imagine, there's plenty of sweet oak character in this dram but underneath the Springbank saltiness and gentle smokiness shines through. Official notes read, " Yogurt and thick cream continue from the nose with an introduction of honey, syrup and liquorice. Gentle notes and sweet apples, almonds and dried bananas. A light dusting of icing sugar and lemon zest. A touch of smoke and dry peat builds with a gentle sea breeze from Campbeltown Loch. Briny and light mineral flavours complete this excellent dram." Only 9,000 bottles released and sold out world-wide.

 
Springbank 15yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$149.00
   
The 15yo shows a change in tack for Springbank, as this has a big dose of sherry oak going through still relatively dry and intensive, but mid palate the dark chocolate and rich toffee notes kick in. Like a storm gathering off the Kintyre coast. Dark & ominous.

 
Springbank 17yo Sherry Wood
700ml 52.30%
  Ret
$239.00
   
This 2015 release looks such a gem: Aged Springbank, fully matured in sherry oak. Only 9,120 bottle produced world wide. In their worlds, "Nose: A sherry explosion with winter fruits, spicy gingerbread and a hint of peat. Palate: A winter warmer. Dark orange chocolate, Christmas cake and brandy snaps. Honey and spices develop over time. Finish: The finish is long and smooth. Espresso coffee, liquorice, marzipan and sherry conclude the tickling of the taste buds."

 
Springbank 18yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$249.00
   
Medium to full bodied style, matured in both ex sherry (80%) and ex bourbon casks. Only 7800 bottles produced and now generally in short supply worldwide! This malt is all about precision & refinement...nothing is out of place: from the restrained nose of fruit cake with marzipan and a hint of pine smoke to the very long, lightly peated, crisply malty & fruity palate & dry smokey finish, this malt hums. And keeps on humming for quite some time. Tasting notes from the distillery as well: Nose: Full of authority. Rich and creamy at first, the nose develops to reveal vanilla, ripe fruits and marzipan before hints of sherbet, almonds and strawberries tempt you onwards to the first mouthful. Palate: A classic full-bodied dram. Thick and oily in texture with an extremely fruity and mellow taste which gives way to a sweet liquorice and aniseed flavour as it opens up. Hints of liquorice and aniseed. Finish: Sweet and chocolaty with some coconut, the finish is long and consistent with a pleasant smokey tingle.

 
Springbank 21yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$399.00
   
RARE It's been a very long time between drinks as they. It really has been quite some time since the distillery has been able to release a 21yo again. I suspect there is a very intriguing story out there about why older Springers have not been released for quite some time. Before we get to this beauty a WARNING! Do not expect a copy of the old 21yo. This is a completely different beast. For me, it's dry, intensive and complex. No big, rich, sweetly raisined fruit in this dram, it's half way between being lean and sweet. As one blogger so rightly stated, "this is the modern Springbank austerity (minerals, brine & wax)" showing here. Background peat. But the flavour just lasts and lasts. More detailed notes to follow. And what's with the garish, gold lame packaging!! What were they thinking of?

 
Springbank 25yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$749.00
   
Well it certainly has been a long time coming. After all the shenanigans of the past 20 years at Springbank, finally they have their flagship back. And look at the packaging!! This dram has been matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks before being married in port casks for the final few months of maturation. Only 1,200 bottles were released for worldwide distribution. The official notes read, "Nose: The nose is rich with a peated port influence. Its redolent of the dunnage warehouse in which it was matured. Fruity too, but this time berries to the fore: blackberries, cranberries and strawberries. Palate: The port wine influence is perfectly balanced with flavours of sherry, plum jam, blood oranges and pink grapefruit. Finish: The finish is long, soft and elegant, with earthy, peaty and woody qualities."

SPEYSIDE
Aberlour 18yo
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
$320.00
   
Love Aberlour, love sherry malts, so the combo of the two I just couldn't go past. Here's what John Hansell at The Malt Advocate wrote, "Once again, the sherry is prominent throughout, with its lush fruit, velvety texture, and sweet demeanor. But it�s not cloying or sappy � Rich, silky smooth, satisfying finish. Very impressive. The Aberlour 18 year old�s reputation remains intact!: 91pts." And from Tom Canavan, "A lovely, confident, satisfying, after-dinner Aberlour. Sherried Speyside at its best."

 
Acorn Glendullan 2001 15yo Japanese Mountains Great & Small Cask 7704
700ml 54.10%
  Ret
$300.00
   
I was shown these a month of so ago and was surprised to see that they are from a Japanese Indie bottler, Acorn. Not really that familiar with Glendullan, but well aged and cask strength which is well renowned for it's fruitiness and big vanilla flavours should be a treat.

 
Acorn Tamdhu 1995 21yo Homage To Caledonia Sherry Butt 1044
700ml 56.20%
  Ret
$350.00
   
I was shown these a month of so ago and was surprised to see that they are from a Japanese Indie bottler, Acorn. A gentle Speysider, all American oak but look at the age.

 
An Cnoc Peter Arkle Casks Edition
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$135.00
   
A special release from An Cnoc that celebrates the artistic talents of Scotland's premier illustrator, Peter Arkle. The Casks Edition is An Cnoc matured in American oak with further maturation on Spanish Oloroso sherry casks. Now that must be a rarity, The use of Spanish oak that is. In their words, "Nose Sweet and full-bodied bursting with spicy vanilla and rich toffee aromas followed by fresh lemons, cooked green apples and a just hint of coconut. Colour Light amber. Taste Sweet, warm and spicy. Dried fruit cake, creamy vanilla and toffee are followed by a distinct note of zesty orange peel and enveloped in leathery richness."
