Springbank 27 Year Old Countdown Collection Single Malt Whisky

The first expression from The Countdown Collection, released in 2023. This very special collection is part of an annual series anticipating Springbank Distillery's 200th anniversary in 2028. It was aged for 27 years in a combination of three casks: one refill bourbon cask and two refill sherry casks.
Only 500 bottles released.

    Nose:    Bright and fresh on the nose with floral and creamy aromas coming to the fore. Pear drops, custard creams, orange blossom, peach and apricot notes are complimented by a touch of toasted coconut.

    Taste:    Notes of fruit continue alongside the velvety, buttery and delicate nature of this whisky with an introduction of slightly sweet, yet tart stewed apples. Buttercream and honeycomb preside with syrupy notes of glazed apricots and a hint of orange zest. A herbaceous quality emerges reminiscent of dried tea leaves.

    Finish:   Elements of spice and nuttiness follow in the finish with notes of gingerbread and pecans. The herbal qualities are prolonged and a lemon sherbet note provides a welcome vibrance and tang towards the end.

Please note: Springbank labels are extremely prone to scuffing. We cannot guarantee these items are like new.
