Springbank 21yr XOP (Douglas Laing)
If there is a distillery in Scotland that showcases the "dirty" nature of Scotch whisky and the complexities that comes with it, then it's Springbank, some rave about this distillery, it's one i can enjoy but it's not my favourite.
This 21 year old single cask however is a classy, joyous, delicious, dirty experience that really showcases how good Springbank is and can be. Filled with dirty oily notes, diesel and a huge savoury element, if you can grab one do so, without hesitation.
Sold out at Master of Malt but they seem to be expecting more so give them a shout or follow the page closely.
Thanks to Douglas Laing for the official sample as part of my Douglas Laing Fellows pack.
Dirty dusty rooms with savoury ritz crackers, a light sweet ozone airy ness, creamy with a hint of diesel fuel
Dirty dusty rooms again with clementine peel and hints of machine oil, walnut schnapps, quite dry, more savoury crackers with a touch of pate
Long oily dry
