Springbank Double 1966 / 1975

Postby DukeofSandwich » Sun Sep 20, 2009 6:27 pm

I saw this bottle on US ebay right when it was posted but didn't have a chance to do any research until I got home that night. By then, it had already sold for $300. The Buy It Now price was $350. Should I be kicking myself for missing the opportunity?

Still, it's a vatted malt...


I think in that case it could still be worth a lot of money, don't you think so? :wink:

It's a single isn't it Nick? Two casks of Springbank apparently. I'm inclined to agree with the idea that $350 is not that cheap though. It says at least 18yo so presumably the '75 cask was 18 and the '66 was around 27.
