A special 1989 Vintage Springbank Whisky matured for 12 years in hogsheads and traditional barrels, finished in rum wood and bottled in April 2002. A part of the wood expression series from this Campbeltown Distillery, only 5,700 bottles were released. The springbank distillery re-started full operations in 1989 after being closed for about 10 years prior to that. Green apples, pears, fresh cut grass with a sweet and salty long finish. Hints of black pepper and cinnamon.
