Springbank Society 10th anniversary tasting, Edinburgh

Postby jmrl » Fri Mar 21, 2014 3:51 pm

Springbank Society 10th anniversary Thursday 03.04.14 £26/23* 7.30pm

At The Kilderkin, 65/67 Canongate, Royal Mile, Edinburgh

Eek, ten years! Well any excuse for a few drams, we can't let this moment pass without recognising it. Ten years ago they had the idea to court their fans - £50 membership gets you some benefits but the best bit is access to single casks unique to the society. I'm sure the second release was an 8yo Longrow for £25. They're not quite so generously priced these days but always something worth a look. The below 5 have been in my collection and as they're not zooming up the value charts its time to put them to best use. The last tasting was 5 Springbanks from differing casks - so we'll keep the theme going but try the triple distilled unpeated Hazelburn and the double distilled peated Longrowtoo all from 4 different cask types:

Springbank 17yo 12/90 – 02/08 refill port hogshead 570 bottles 51.5%

Springbank 14yo 06/92 – 03/07 Bourbon hogshead 265 bottles 55.3%

Hazelburn 8yo 07/98 – 07/06 refill sherry butt 600 bottles 58.7%

Springbank 9yo fresh rum butt 07/97 – 03/07 700 bottles 60.2%

Longrow 8yo 02/97 – 07/05 refill sherry butt 630 bottles 59.9%

*£3 discount for first timers and members.

For anyone interested this tasting is reviewed over at Bladnoch Forum under 'Canongate Tastings'. The whiskies were simply wonderful.
