Auchentoshan Springwood is one of the five expressions released in 2012 as the distillery’s Travel Retail range.
The entire selection pays tribute to the wood and each whisky from the range is inspired by the phase of a tree’s life cycle and supposed to reflect the whisky’s flavor as parallel to the stage of tree’s life. Springwood is the younger sibling of Heartwood and relates to the tree’s youthful time of growth. The whisky carries no age statement; it was aged in ex-bourbon casks.
Nose: smooth, grassy, white chocolate, vanilla, honey and citrus.
Palate: fresh and clean, vanilla, honey, lemon zest, green apples, hints of hay.
Finish: medium long, fresh vanilla and lemonade.
