It has been noted that whiskies from Springbank distillery are usually rearer then Unicorn poop, and the growing demand from around the world for whisky within the market has made them even more scarce. You are more likely to be hit by a unicycle ridden by a Leprechaun, then find these amazing whiskies at your local.
Springbank distillery is one of the last surviving operators in Campbeltown, Scotland. The distillery produces three distinct uniquely different single malts: Springbank, Hazelburn, and Longrow. Each of these single malts are completely different in taste and character from each other, but they do complement each other with their individual expressions of Highland, Island, and Lowland whiskies.
For the savvy collector who dreams getting that official bottling in their cabinet, Springbank can be a dream or a nightmare.
A little break down on the three expressions from the Springbank distillery:
With a character all of its own, thanks to the use of lightly peated barley and a unique two-and-a-half-times distillation process, it is a complex, full bodied maritime dram.
Longrow was the result of an experiment carried out by the chairman, who set out to prove that an Islay style single malt could be produced on the mainland. Today, Longrow is a heavily peated, wonderfully smoky whisky.
Hazelburn is the newest whisky to be produced at Springbank. By using malt that is air dried only and distilling the whisky three times in old copper stills, they achieved a spirit that is light, fruity and subtle. Like Longrow, Hazelburn is named after one of the distilleries of Campbeltown’s past.
