The Rundlets and Kilderkins. A special bottling of the Springbank 10 year old which has been aged in 60-80L barrels (much smaller than Laphroaig quarter casks to put it in perspective) for added depth and flavour.
While the quality of the whisky is ok unfortunately (in my opinion) the bottle is really really ugly, a full copper springbank emblem. Not what i want to see from any distillery let alone a natural craft distiller who relies on the intrinsic quality of their product.
Nose: sweet, rich caramel toffee, light phenol and tar. Usual Springbank malt and complexity is there
Pallet: easy drinking, clean feel, nuttiness with huge pepper, wood spice and a waft of smoke at the back
Finish: spices from the wood and pepper continue
Im not a huge fan of these small cask whiskys. For me the cask strength 10 year old Laphroaig is better than the quarter cask and again for me i prefer the 10 year old Springbank to this small cask option. For me there is too much wood and spice to appreciate the quality of the liquid (which im sure is there). However if you love the quarter cask and enjoy Springbank, this may be right up your alley
