I love Campbeltown whiskies, by that I mean everything of the Springbank range, not Glen Scotia. But it took me quite some time to eventually try the sister distillery of Springbank from the same owners.
I'll admit I've been missing out.
Nose: tones of apricots, honey, sunflower oil, with some underlying briny soft coastal notes.
Palate: very sharp (unexpected) on the palate, with an oily texture, almonds, honey, a touch of green apples, and a mix of soft fruits with mils peppery notes.
Finish: medium long and drying, sugared flavours with an endnote of dried prunes,
Not all what I expected, the palate came as a bit of a shock to me, it cuts like a knife. Didn't like it at the first sip, adored it at the last. Takes some getting used, so probably not for beginners, but to the seasoned malty mad heads under us I say, give it a go.
