Springbank 12, Cask Strength, 2013 edition, 53.1%

I started to type up this whisky review vigorously, when I decided to see how this bottling compares to the earlier one I had tried, about a year ago at De Whiskykoning.

As it turns out, it’s exactly the same release, which made me remember that when we ordered it for the Emakina tasting a couple weeks ago, we had to change batch numbers since the one we wanted was out of stock.

Still, I did a small comparison on the tasting notes, and I’m pleased to say that the notes I took were very similar between both versions. I didn’t get the cheese note this time, and wrote down hay some more. But apart from that, I should have known.

Anyway, a nice chance to look up an older release, which still is ridiculously good.

The drawback of not writing this post, is that I don’t have any notes left to write down quickly…
