A bold, lightly-peated Single Malt aged 100% in ex-Burgundy Wine casks..

Springbank Distillery is one of the precious few holdouts in three, unique ways. The first is that they are still family owned — the Mitchell family has owned and operated Springbank officially since 1828. The second is that they are one of only two distilleries left in Campbelltown. The third is that they are one of only two distilleries in Scotland that controls all aspects of production on the same premises — from malting to bottling. Springbank produces a range of Whiskies across the favor spectrum, from sweeter “finished” drams through peated and spicy sippers in three brands, including Longrow, Hazelburn, and their namesake Springbank.

Springbank 12 Year Burgundy Wood is one of those rare limited editions offerings that you’re glad you had and look for each time they are released. In a word, it’s “bold.” Like all Springbank Single Malts, this spirit is lightly peated, lending a mineral-smoke quality. Importantly, it’s aged a full twelve years in first-fill Burgundy Wine barrels and sparkled with fresh summer fruit notes.

Smartass corner: 
Uniquely, some Springbank Single Malt is distilled twice, and the rest is distilled three times. Thus, they often say that it has been distilled two and a half times.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Campbeltown, Springbank's hometown, was one of the busiest Whisky producing locations around until a Highland trainline introduced competition. Peaking at 34, today only three distilleries are still running.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
