Bottled at cask strength, the 12 year old (batch 19) from Springbank is aged 35% in first-fill sherry hogsheads and 65% bourbon casks.
Springbank 12 Cask Strength was tasted at Meeting No. 91 on June 25, 2020. Out of 5, we rated it exceptionally at 4.00. Springbank 12 Cask Strength ranks 2nd overall in Scotch. Costing $125, this spirit is on the pricier side, but well worth the money.
Delicious Springbank. BBQ on nose. Even though the cask strength is meaty, it doesn’t land with the expected heat. Warm and comfy. Great sunset pour. Sherry finish is profound.
Machine grease and beauty. BBQ sauce and labor sweat. This tastes like I earned it.
Really nice. Good depth. What i imagine the smokestack at a Kellogg’s if it were at sea. Some smoke, some honey, some malt, some salt water. The aftertaste has a good rumble brown sugar, cinnamon and good amount of bite. Nice pour.
This bottle has something to say and it says it loud. Intense flavors of smoky sweetness with a strong alcohol note. Finish lingers for a long time in the mouth and the chest. Ironically, this one might be best for sobering up quickly.
