Murray McDavid Springbank 1965
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%

7 Longrow's bold character manages to boss the wine cask resulting in a fascinating combination.

Master of Malt Springbank 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.50%
8 Invigorating like a crisp spring morning. Fragrances in the air. I prefer it neat.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Springbank
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.60%
8 Sometimes the palate cries out for whiskies as direct as this, especially on cold days like today.

Chieftain's Choice Springbank 35 Years Old Single Cask Sherry Butt
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.20%
7 Springbank is a big whisky but the sherry here is even bigger, and wipes out some of the whisky's subtleties.
