  • Springbank 19 Year Old 1996 for BYOB-C - Hyper Active

    By markjedi1 on 12th May 20162016-05-12T06:38:00


    The Lads of Lobland series already consist of a great Clynelish. Now this club brings us a wonderfully dark Springbank, clearly from a sherry cask. They shared the cask with the Dutch casQueteers who sold… read more

    By markjedi1 on 12th May 20162016-05-12T06:37:00


    It has been almost 5 years since I last tried the Sprintbank CV. Thank to my friend Pat I can now give the 2015 bottling a go. Oh, right, CV is short for Chairman’s Vat and is a mix of different vintages… read more

    By Pandemonium on 20th Feb 20162016-02-20T16:50:00


    As I gave the 6th Kilkerran Work In Process (commonly known as the WIP VI) a solid 91, you can imagine I was very excited about the new cask strength release. An opinion apparently widely shared as the… read more

  • Springbank 12 YO Claret - Bright Claret Springbank

    By Victor on 8th Nov 20152015-11-08T20:13:00


    The reviewed sample is compliments of @Nozinan Nose: gentle, sweet, high-pitched Claret wine greets first and dominates the nose. Along with the grape there is a little tangerine marmalade. The Sprin… read more

    Nose: Sour caramel; old library books; vintage car seat leather; slight sulfur. Palate: A touch of peat and smoke; caramel; mouse pelt; alcohol burn; musty curtains. Finish: Ends brilliantly with bright… read more
