The annual Springbank cask strength releases vary in terms of maturation. 2018 saw a combination of 70% sherry and 30% bourbon. 2019 was an even 50/50 mix. For 2020 the pendulum swings in the opposite direction - this time 35% sherry & 65% bourbon. We've noted a different kind of complexity each year, without compromising the Campbeltown soot and rugged coastal character. This year's may be slightly sweeter and fruitier. Only those who cave into opening a bottle will find out. Non chill filtered. 55.3% Alc./Vol.
Prized by whisky lovers and now more so collectors, Springbank has become the new darling of the secondary market. While several international retailers are now upping prices in an attempt to curtail collector demand, we maintain that whisky is first and foremost for drinking. In order to accommodate as many customers as possible, we'll continue to offer these gems at reasonable opening prices while strictly limiting purchases to one bottle per customer. It should be noted that international demand for Springbank now outstrips production. Allocations from the distillery are getting smaller with no future guarantees of reliable year round supply, even on the core range.
