Springbank CV

Postby Fscott » Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:10 pm

I just saw this on a site where I sometimes order whisky. It says that Springbank CV was 'new in 2010' and is 'a mix of 7, 10 and 14 -year-old whiskies matured in sherry, bourbon and port barrels'. 46%, un-chill filtered.

Has anybody tried this? I love Springbank 10, and at 37€ this has piqued my curiosity.

I never much cared for the 10y, but love the Longrow CV, so have been eying a 3x200ml collection at Binny's consisting of the CV expression of all three Springbank "versions". A good chance to give Hazelburn a try, too.

My experience with the Springbank cv has been very good. I'll be surprised if you are disappointed. The 3x20cl pack is good too.

Do it.

The 2x distilled Longrow CV vs
the 2.8x distilled Springbank CV vs
the 3x distilled Hazelburn CV.

( the Longrow is by far the better IMO )
