Another from the fine wood range of Springbank and its siblings (Hazelburn and Longrow), which includes Madiera, Burgundy, Barolo and now the 8 year old Sauternes from Hazelburn. In theory the lighter style of Campbeltown married with a sweet wine finnsh.

Colour: has a really nice red copper colour

  • Nose: dense fruit, maybe apricot? Or peach? Tiny phenol, bitter toffee. Utterly Fantastic nose

  • Pallet: genuinely hot spice with rich sweet caramels

  • Finish: spice, smoke and maybe burnt toast?

  • Mark: 8.5/10

Another fine addition from the fine wood collection, perhaps not the best, i dont think the character of hazelburn has been retained as well as perhaps the Longrow varieties (Burdundy and Gaja Barolo)
