Springbank 12 Year Cask Strength

I last gave tasting notes on Springbank 10 Year single malt whisky, and just wanted to follow up with notes for the bottle of Springbank 12 Year Cask Strength (54.3%) I currently have on the shelf at the bar.

Tasting Notes


Rich, pungent
Heated melted butter, toffee, butterscotch, cinnamon, peat, hints of sherry, dried fruits, salty coastal notes

Steady intensification
Sweet, sour, creamy turning to ashy mouthfeel, vanilla pudding, soft smoke, buttery

Long, intense
Chocolate, honey, ash, woody

One of my favorite cask-strength whiskies. I'm quite looking forward to trying a bottle from the next batch.
