Kicking off our Springbank Sherry series is this 10 year old whisky matured for seven years in Bourbon casks and three years in fresh Pedro Ximenez casks. The Springbank character married with the sweet, rich PX influence creates a perfect winter-warmer dram.
Nose: An unmistakable Sherry influence presents itself from the beginning, with rich notes of date syrup and raisins kicking off this full-bodied dram.
Palate: A tannic, spicy element is introduced in the palate, along with notes of cola cubes, cherry menthol, cinnamon and caramel. The typical Springbank characteristics hold their own against the heavy PX influence in an apparent oiliness and damp, dunnage note.
Finish: The tannic element continues through to the finish, and PX qualities come to the forefront in notes of sultanas and rich spices.
