Staff Pick Notes

Those of you who visit Astor's awesome whisky wall will know that I spend a lot of time there. How, then, did I fail to notice that this awesome Campbeltown single malt had gone without the recognition it deserved and not been "Staffed Picked"?This is the standard-bearer at Springbank, and a perfect introduction to the only distillery that still does 100 percent of its own maltings. The nose: spicy, with faint hints of chili and salted vanilla cookies. The palate: barrel spices, sweet peat, a touch of coconut and deep vanilla. The finish: malty, with a crisp and dry sea salt aspect. This cannot fail to impress and is a great segue into the enjoyment of peated whiskies. Cheers.
