Springbank 18 års efterår 2019 edition
The hugely popular Springbank 18 years old. The first edition of this was extremely popular, with a more hint of sherry among Springbank's classic notes such as salt water and smoke, and this version has already been named Best Campbeltown Malt at the World Whiskey Awards 2014. A composition of 80% Sherry casks as well as 20 % Bourbon fade. Springbank produces 3 distinct types of whiskey, which differentiate on a number of parameters. The classic Springbank has a light peat smoke. The smoke level is stated (somewhat inaccurately) with a measurement of phenol in the pre-malted barley and is approximately 10-15 "parts per million" (the malt is dried for 6 hours with peat smoke and 30 hours with hot air). Springbank has also been distilled 2.5 times. "Longrow" - a heavily smoked variant was first made in 1973. Here the smoke is up to 50-55 ppm, the malt is dried for 48 hours with peat smoke, and it is distilled twice. The latest variant, Hazelburn, saw the light of day in 1997 when they first tried completely unsmoked and triple distilled whiskey. Of the approximately 175,000 liters that the small Campbeltown distillery produces per year, 80% are Springbank, approximately 10% Longrow and 10% Hazelburn. No matter what variant you are addicted to, Springbank is worth getting acquainted with. It's many whiskey nerd's favorite distillery and for good reason! As the only distillery in Scotland, they malt all the barley they need. Dye is never added and the whiskey is not refrigerated.
