Springbank bottles

Postby ncmussell » Tue Feb 28, 2012 10:52 pm

Just wondering if there is any difference between the spring bank bottles with the new labels and those that are still around with the older labels? Particularly the 18 year, the old purple label is much higher priced than the new 18 year release.

The blue label was the first release of the 18 (08 or so). The subsequent bottlings have been the lavendar/purple labels. Have they started putting out a new label beyond these and a lesser price? There are some differences between the two I mentioned and I would much prefer to have the lavendar label.

Yeah the new 18 has black label like all of the other springbank releases now. Looks like it may be around 130 a bottle so that might be similar to previous releases.

The blue label was like 150-180. Purple was 120-140. It would seem like it is right in the ballpark with the purples.
