Review: Springbank CV Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Springbank is one of those whisky gems that serious Scotch fans love — myself included — but which is sadly underrepresented in the U.S. at bars and liquor stores. Springbank appears to be on the rise, though, and the Campbeltown-located distillery has put out its first new spirit in years.

Like standard Springbank expressions, CV (presumed to mean Curriculum Vitae, as in a resume) is a pale gold in color and is very light on the peat. Honey is the operative ingredient on the nose, and as you sip, that honey interacts with a nice, oaky body and sherry notes to finish. Very well balanced, the 80-proof single malt hints at the sea with some saltiness, as well as a little mint character.

Quite lovely, and a good bargain, too. No age statement. Bottled at 92 proof.
