Springbank 25 Years Old is an integral part of Springbank’s core range — hard to believe the annual expression was only introduced in 2014! This 2006 bottling was actually the first official release of 25-year-old Springbank single malt in the 21st century. It matured fully in refill sherry butts and is bottled at 46%. Springbank 25 Years Old 2006 Edition is a sublime single malt. It has a full, intense nose with rich aromas of fruit cake, honey, apricot, mango, toffee, leather, tobacco, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of smoke. The palate is creamy and oily with notes of apricot, plum, jam, milk chocolate, black pepper, oak and tobacco, leading to a long, warm and fruity finish. Only 1200 bottles were released.
