Springbank 21 yr old

Postby Ian_Hamilton » Fri Jan 10, 2003 12:44 pm

I was in LFW in the Summer and bought a bottle of S21 for 89 pounds, I went back at Christmas and they were selling the same for 195 pounds, can it really go up in price so much, so quickly. If so what is the estimated price in two or three years when it is totally exhausted???

Hi,

As the availlability drops down below, and the demand grows for a Springer 21, then the price will rise up like a maniak, simply because it'sa getting very scarce now. However if you come back again somewhere in 2008, then there will some Springer 21Y old availlable, the quantity? I don't know, but have a felling that there will be enough, at a resonable price.

Hi all:

At that price I am selling my remaining Springbank 21's.
I do think it is an excellent malt. It is very much in a class of its own with a distinct range of flavors --but its just not worth that much, in my opinion.
I always thought that Springbanks were somewhat over rated --perhaps due to the justified sympathy that their independence elicits. For example, the Rum wood expression's nose was reminiscent of paint remover. Yet everyone sang its praises! Sometimes the ways of the pro tasters are impenetrable!!!

It will be on e-bay very soon. Just type Springbank 21. They all sold for less than LFW's price.
