Dà Mhìle “NEWBORN”

380.00

A 15 year-old, single cask bottling of our original 1992 Springbank. Aged in a first use sherry cask for the entirety of its life gives this edition a wonderful deep red colour. Bottled in 1997 to commemorate the birth of John's first grandchild, it's also the only whisky in the world with a picture of a baby on the label.

Dà Mhìle Organic “New Born” Springbank.

56.4%, limited edition of 153 bottles
Tasting notes from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2011

Overall: A roaring success on account of the gripping complexity despite the full-on sherry: a rare combination. This is the only whisky I know with a photo of a baby on the label: Danny, the first grandchild of organic whisky producer John Savage-Onstwedder. There is absolutely nothing childish about this malt, though, and I think Danny will be a happy chap when he cracks open his bottle on his birthday in 2025. I just hope this kind of classic sherry cask will not be a bottled memory.

95/100 “Superstar whisky that gives us all a reason to live”
