Since this was released in 2019, and I was very active in the whisky scene (as a consumer) I would expect to be aware this bottle existed. Of course, I was not, and it wasn’t until I saw it listed … Continue reading

A Campbeltown Vertical of Classics

With anything made by Springbank selling out instantly, Tom thought it right to go through the three classics that they put out. Most of them are reasonably available, with especially the Springbank 10 being in some shops for € 50 … Continue reading

Springbank 22, 1997-2020, 55.4% – Private cask for HMMJ

Private casks are a bit more rare these days, than they were a decade or so ago. This is in part because it’s much harder to purchase casks from Springbank, and in part because Springbank started buying casks back year … Continue reading

While technically the new decade only starts next year, we’ve still moved from the tens to the twenties last week and that is much more noticeable than 2020 to 2021 is going to be. So, to get things going: Happy … Continue reading

Longrow 18, 1999-2018, 52.9% – OB from the Cage

Longrow, the ‘peated-to-Islay-levels’ version of Springbank with a slightly shorter distillation regime, is one of their three brands. With it being a Springbank whisky, it means they have cage bottles available at the shop in Campbeltown. When I was there … Continue reading

Hazelburn 2005-2018, 54.6% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

When I bought this bottle I figured it would be a slam dunk because Springbank is a great distillery, and Cadenhead is a great bottler. Also, when you check the almost 87 points it gets on Whiskybase, you’re still good. … Continue reading
