The 13th release in the First Editions Authors' Series from Glasgow-based independent bottler Hunter Laing & Co, this single cask Campbeltown malt was distilled at Springbank in May 1993. Matured in a refill hogshead (ref HL14288) for 24 years, only 216 bottles were filled in October 2017, each one at a natural cask strength of 53.3% abv and presented in a beautiful leather case emblazoned with gold lettering.

A complex nose on this pale gold whisky of dried fruits including oranges and peaches combined with beeswax, a big hit of vanilla and a faint whisper of smoke. Waxy on the palate with more dried fruits, some toffee and sandalwood. The fruity, waxy notes continue into the long, drying finish. An excellent example of a long-aged American-oak matured Springbank.
