Lot ID: 0418/904

1 bottle springbank 1993 - 2000. 7 year old. scotch malt whisky society 27.46. one of 529 bottles. no box. 70cl. 59.9%. 104.8 proof. level in neck. small tear to label, otherwise good condition. from the archives. "ferrero rocher chocolates and talcum powder. voted the best malt of all by the readers of whisky magazine last year, campbeltown's most famous product is made in the most traditional way imaginable, with every stage of the process - from malting the barley to bottling - being done on site. this bottling is stupendous for its age. a mere seven years in an active ex-sherry butt has not only given it a rich amber hue; it has also leant extraordinary complexity. sweet and fruity (stewed apples with nutmeg), a smell of the distant sea (salt and seaweed) and an elusive perfume, which we identified as talcum power once water had been added. there is a whiff of smoke in behind, and some noted a hint of milk chocolate. tasted neat (hot and salty) the latter comes through in the finish; at reduced strength it becomes ferrero rocher italian chocolates, with chopped hazelnuts coming first (along with pepper and salt) and the chocolate coming in the aftertaste. dry overall and well balanced; the development is towards seaside pebbles and minerals. impressive!" the original price for this bottle in 2000 was £45.
