Springbank Whiskey

I am not as familiar with the Campbeltown Whisky's as I am other regions. Campbeltown only has three distilleries left in the region and they are not as well known to me as the Speyside and Highland whiskys. Springbank is slightly sweet but there is still a little smokiness to its flavor. It is lighter in color than other scotches. I have only sampled it once so I can not give a complete review of it. I do know its not one of my favorites ranking at the bottom of my list. There is a little of that iodine scent that my partner Mark likes in his scotch. But its not peaty by any means. I am going to try and sample it again on one of my next outings, if i am able to find it.

Light, fresh and pleasant with some hints of citrus, cereals, spices and iodine
Glen Scotia™ is one of my favorite single malt scotches!!!  I came to this much sought-after single malt through allot of years of drinking blended scotch whiskeys like Johnnie Walker Black.  However, one has to work their way up to this smoky taste.  Among single malt scotch aficionados, Glen Scotia™ is known to be light, fresh and pleasant with some hints of citrus, cereals, spices and iodine.  It became one of my favorites because I usually smoke cigars when …

Not a lot of experience with Campbeltown, but Springbank is very nice!

About this topic

Wiki

Campbeltown Single Malts are single malt Scotch whiskies distilled in the burgh of Campbeltown, Scotland, on the Kintyre peninsula. Once a major producer of whisky with as many as 28 distilleries, and claiming the title "whisky capital of the world", the area has since declined.

Only three distilleries continue to produce whisky in Campbeltown: Springbank, Glengyle, and Glen Scotia. The Springbank Distillery, however, produces three distinct whiskies; Springbank, Hazelburn, and Longrow. Glengyle Distillery has only recently been revived and will not see a whisky bottled until around 2014, which will be sold under the name Kilkerran to avoid any confusion with the Highland vatted malt named Glengyle.

Though for some time Campbeltown lost its status as a recognized region, despite its dearth of active distilleries, it has once again been granted "regional status" by the Scotch Whisky Association.
