Springbank (10 12C 15 18)

Springbank Single Malt is the most popular variety. Its standard bottling is a 10 year old, distilled two and a half times, and is not chill-filtered, nor does it have colour added. Distilling whisky two and a half times is quite unusual, as it means that during the distillation process some of the low wines are collected before the second distillation, and then mixed back into the feints for another distillation. This means that some parts of the spirit have been through distillation twice and some parts three times. The spirit is then aged in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, although Springbank is experimenting with rum casks as well. The standard 10 year old bottling is available at 46% volume, but a 100° proof bottling (at 57% volume) is also available. They also produce a somewhat darker 15 year old and an 18 year old. A 21 year old variety of Springbank exists, but is increasingly rare.
Longrow Single Malt is a highly peaty whisky. The standard Longrow is also a ten year old, matured in ex-bourbon casks, while a Sherrywood 10 year old is also available. There is also an experimental tokaji-cask edition available. Longrow won Best Campbeltown Single Malt at the 2013 World Whisky Awards.[1] Hazelburn Single Malt, the newest variety, was first distilled in 1997 and since bottled as an 8-year-old. In 2009 a 12-year-old variety was released. Hazelburn is a triple distilled, non-peated whisky, named for another now-defunct Campbeltown distillery.
