The bottling I am talking about is the new one. Don't get me wrong, I am a HUGE Springbank fan, but my bottle is decidedly sub standard. I think I know my Sprinkbank, perhaps more than any other Whisky and this is why I was so disappointed. Could I have a duff bottle?
2008, I can't wait that long, perhaps I will have to crack the double magnum of Springbank I own.
My taste buds, I don't think are shot, I still work as a consultant for 'drinks' issues as a professional taster at the highest level.
For young bottlings of SB not mentioned already I look to the 12 year (dark)and the jummy rum finish. My 15 year old is the new bottling and just isn't fun to drink, ditched it for the 65 McMD the other night. The older 15, 21, 25 were great.
Huurman, emailed LFW re Whisky a month or so ago with a big order, they didn't reply....orders went to for other merchants. A touch disappointed about this.
So who has had the new bottling?
