The Single Cask 21 expression is aged in an oloriso sherry butt and bottled at its natural strength.
Springbank 21 Single Cask was tasted at Meeting No. 91 on June 25, 2020. Out of 5, we rated it very highly at 3.53. Springbank 21 Single Cask ranks 10th overall in Scotch. Costing $485, this spirit is expensive, but worth it.
This one greeted me with a strong aroma of salted peanuts that went away after a minute or so. Not distinctive from a flavor perspective but easily drinkable. Adding a few drops of water adds some complexity to the flavor.
Like a rocking chair to lull into sleep compared to the other pours. Still has that long aftertaste of charred cinnamon sticks and brown sugar.
Rich floorboard nose, but lacking a little luster. Fermented plum jam and with a stiff, dry finish. A drop or two of water opens this right up and turns it right around. Not exceptional.
