Initial aromas of liquorice are followed by poached pears, chocolate, cream and marzipan. Springbank’s traditional earthy and coastal influence qualities also make an appearance.
There is no mistaking the red wine tannis from the Gaja Barolo casks, complemented by earthy and woody notes. Swedish lingonberries and rhubarb crumble give the whisky some sweetness and a touch of sea salt comes into play.
This is like a raspberry ripple ice cream but combined with peat and spices and a medium dry finish.
