Springbank Rum Wood Age 15 Years Single Malt 51%
This limited edition release was distilled in December 2003 and aged in Rum barrels before bottling in August 2019. This is a sweet tropical dram on the nose with notes of coconut, pineapple and banana. The sweetness continues with toasted marshmallows and sticky toffee pudding but is balanced with a hint of peat. The sweetness transfers onto the palate. There’s the velvety smooth richness of decadent desserts such as a tropical meringue pavlova, creme brûlée, along with citrus yuzu notes. This is balanced by an earthy quality. 9000 bottles were made.
