CAMPBELTOWN
Hazelburn 10yo Rundlets & Kilderkins
700ml 50.10%
  Ret
$148.00
   
Now I am led to believe that this is final R&K from Springbank. This time those small 60 and 80 lt casks are used with Springbank's triple distilled whisky, Hazelburn. In Springbank's words, "Nose: An infusion of chocolate, honeycomb and dried fruit combine well with a malty undertone, before a rich creaminess develops. Palate: Elegant yet complex with a combination of spices, sweeter candy notes, butterscotch, marzipan and sugared almonds. A rich oily texture is derived from its maturation in small casks, giving the impression of a maturity beyond its 10 years. Finish: Long, robust and medium dry. An earthy oakiness is infused with sweet salty notes which go on and on."

 
Hazelburn 12yo Sherry
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$139.00
   
Springbank Distiller's latest triple distilled, ex sherry cask matured, unpeated single malt. And I have to say that this is one sensational malt! And I mean that in its truest sense: the nose is subtly expressive, plenty of old, dark furniture notes, hints of dried orange zest, pepper, cardamom with a hint of bitter marmalade. Very supple, very classy with all the senses fully engaged. So bring on the palate. Fabulous oak: plenty of dried fruits, bitter orange that sits well with subtle malt. Initially sweet then the pepper and crisp spirit arrives at the end leaving a very intriguing, but lasting finish. Typical Springbank: lots of angles & crisp intensity as well as being just huge on the palate. Magic stuff.

 
Hazelburn 2003 13yo Oloroso Sherry Wood
700ml 47.10%
  Ret
$159.00
   
Great review for this new release in 2017 from blogger Mark at Malt, "Velvety, if a little thin on the texture. Certainly not as oily as its sister brands, yet pleasant enough. Heavy on the charcoal, with blackened meats - and honey glaze. Indeed, an underlying meatiness here, drifting into gamey, grouse territory. Blackcurrants and elderberry or even Balsamic tartness to this, which actually works with that meatiness. Blackcurrant juice then begins to dominate. Rather creamy, with just enough bitterness from the wood to balance out. Ever-so-slight metallic tinge. Caramel notes, and eventually those dried fruits one would expect. Conclusions Opening day of the shooting season: gamey, smokey. Just a lovely whisky. Typical of some of the whiskies being released from Springbank of late, and that is something to be celebrated, as it's very much my cup of tea. I can have no shortage of this style of whisky in my cupboard."

 
Hazelburn 2007 9yo Barolo Cask Finish
700ml 57.90%
  Ret
$145.00
   
New for 2017 and possibly the last use of those famed Barolo casks at Springbank. For this release, Springbank have combined their unpeated triple distilled whisky, initially matured for 6 years in fresh bourbon oak with an additional 3 years in the French oak Barolo (red wine) casks. According to Springbank the taste is, "peppery with light tannins. The sweetness is continued alongside dried fruits, raisins and the subtle hint of coconut shavings. 10, 800 bottles released worldwide.

 
Longrow 18yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$264.00
   
The long awaited third release of Springbank Distillerís current, oldest whisky. Once again, allocations are very small and it has totally sold out overseas. Overall, it's a remarkable whisky. Remarkable for its bright, almost luminescent colour (a very non-reactive American oak cask me thinks), remarkable for its very clean, lean, lemon citrus dominated nose. Shane reckons thereís a hint of earthiness (this will be the peat) in there as well plus a good dose of creamy American oak. On the palate, itís also remarkable for its initial feistiness but then the door opens up to let you into one seriously long, luxurious palate, where nothing is out of place. Malt, oak, alcohol and citrus fruit flavours are in complete harmony. I donít think Iíve seen a Longrow just so pure. In a word: zesty. In another: breathtaking. Whiskyfun rates it at 92pts with the comment, "extremely high quality. I canít see why Iíd come up with another score."

 
Springbank 10yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$109.00
   
From the highly individual and delightfully idiosyncratic Springbank Distillers comes their flagship 2.8 distilled, lightly peated whisky 12-15ppm, Springbank. The basic 10yo is back to its very best old self: this malt is bright and pleasingly salty, ex bourbon cask matured whisky with noticeable seaside & citrus fruit characters, along with a degree of complexity with balance, malt, oak, nutmeg & cinnamon & a salty tingle on the end. Buxton's 101.

Simply the best Springbank Cask Strength I have ever tasted. So there. Big dose of sherry, that famed light smoke and saltiness and freshness. Stunning. Highly limited.

 
Springbank 12yo Green
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$135.00
   
Brand new for the Summer of 2015 and it looks like being a Springbank series as well. Why green? Because the barley is organic. Fully matured in ex bourbon barrel. These notes come from the crew at Cadenheads, " Nose: Some citrus and spice lead the charge of aromas with the soft coastal nose we know and love with Springbank, The arrival of a oat cake and honey note infused with coconut and vanilla pod. Palate: Here comes a real roller-coaster of flavours ranging from light sweet citrus fruits, soft sweet smoke slips in for an appearance before a rich honey and oak note arrives along with breakfast cereal notes. Warming with a little sweet spice to lift the middle palate rather nicely. Finish: Classic Campbeltown with the smoke and very soft sweet peat edges, summer coastal walk with the iodine in the air, banana maybe with the soft fruitiness becoming more evident the longer it's left in the glass."

   
Springbank 13yo Green Sherry Casks
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$135.00
   
The new for 2016 release of Springbank's organic barley malt and now a year older. To be certified organic, the oak had to be new. With Springbank, this was not going to happen. And bravo for the sherry casks! From WhiskyNotes, "A nicely sherried variation on last yearís Green 12yo. Itís definitely less austere this time, with more fruity roundness. More towards the 18 Year Old profile." While the distillery describes it as, "The palate is fruity with raisins and orange zest to the fore. Marzipan, vanilla and soft sherry notes are also present."

 
Springbank 15yo

$149.00
   
The 15yo shows a change in tack for Springbank, as this has a big dose of sherry oak going through still relatively dry and intensive, but mid palate the dark chocolate and rich toffee notes kick in. ďLike a storm gathering off the Kintyre coast. Dark & ominousÖĒ

 
Springbank 17yo Sherry Wood
700ml 52.30%
  Ret
$239.00
   
This 2015 release looks such a gem: Aged Springbank, fully matured in sherry oak. Only 9,120 bottle produced world wide. In their worlds, "Nose: A sherry explosion with winter fruits, spicy gingerbread and a hint of peat. Palate: A winter warmer. Dark orange chocolate, Christmas cake and brandy snaps. Honey and spices develop over time. Finish: The finish is long and smooth. Espresso coffee, liquorice, marzipan and sherry conclude the tickling of the taste buds."

 
Springbank 18yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$249.00
   
Medium to full bodied style, matured in both ex sherry (80%) and ex bourbon casks. Only 7800 bottles produced and now generally in short supply worldwide! This malt is all about precision & refinement...nothing is out of place: from the restrained nose of fruit cake with marzipan and a hint of pine smoke to the very long, lightly peated, crisply malty & fruity palate & dry smokey finish, this malt hums. And keeps on humming for quite some time. Tasting notes from the distillery as well: Nose: Full of authority. Rich and creamy at first, the nose develops to reveal vanilla, ripe fruits and marzipan before hints of sherbet, almonds and strawberries tempt you onwards to the first mouthful. Palate: A classic full-bodied dram. Thick and oily in texture with an extremely fruity and mellow taste which gives way to a sweet liquorice and aniseed flavour as it opens up. Hints of liquorice and aniseed. Finish: Sweet and chocolaty with some coconut, the finish is long and consistent with a pleasant smokey tingle.

 
Springbank 21yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$399.00
   
RARE It's been a very long time between drinks as they. It really has been quite some time since the distillery has been able to release a 21yo again. I suspect there is a very intriguing story out there about why older Springers have not been released for quite some time. Before we get to this beauty a WARNING! Do not expect a copy of the old 21yo. This is a completely different beast. For me, it's dry, intensive and complex. No big, rich, sweetly raisined fruit in this dram, it's half way between being lean and sweet. As one blogger so rightly stated, "this is the modern Springbank austerity (minerals, brine & wax)" showing here. Background peat. But the flavour just lasts and lasts. More detailed notes to follow. And what's with the garish, gold lame packaging!! What were they thinking of?

 
Springbank 21yo Single Cask
700ml 49.20%
  Ret
$399.00
   
Only 702 bottles released of this 21yo cask strength gem. Our allocation is pitiful to say the least. I'm still perplexed as to why they would bother with this release, wouldn't it takes some rare liquid away from their standard 21yo? But then again this is Springbank!

   
Springbank 25yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$749.00
   
Well it certainly has been a long time coming. After all the shenanigans of the past 20 years at Springbank, finally they have their flagship back. And look at the packaging!! This dram has been matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks before being married in port casks for the final few months of maturation. Only 1,200 bottles were released for worldwide distribution. The official notes read, "Nose: The nose is rich with a peated port influence. Itís redolent of the dunnage warehouse in which it was matured. Fruity too, but this time berries to the fore: blackberries, cranberries and strawberries. Palate: The port wine influence is perfectly balanced with flavours of sherry, plum jam, blood oranges and pink grapefruit. Finish: The finish is long, soft and elegant, with earthy, peaty and woody qualities."

Moonshine say it all. This is an early release from WA's second distillery, but one dedicated to making American style bourbons in Australia. What is interesting, is that Springbank's very own Frank McHardy is their whisky advisor.. This is new make, aged for 6 months in American oak. And at 40%

 
GRAIN
Cadenhead Small Batch Invergordon 1972 43yo Single Grain
700ml 48.30%
  Ret
$299.00
   
Here's one for all you Springbank aficionados: this is the distillery where Frank McHardy started his career in whisky production. It was also the home of the stills for Ben Wyvis, which now produce Glengyle in Cambeltown. But aged grains are a treat and in the scheme of things, good value too. Highly complex with a slightly different style to aged single malts as Cadenhead's notes attest to, "Cream, butter, salted popcorn and oatcakes." Matured in 2 x bourbon barrels with an outturn of a remarkable 468 bottles.
