    Re: Foreign Whisky of the Month - 09/2013: Springbank

    Springbank is my favorite Scotch distillery. I currently have a Hazelburn 8, older Springer 15 and a Longrow 7 finished for 1.5 years in Gaja Barolo open. Waiting in the wings is the CS 14 amontillado CW mentioned. Best I've tried is the CS 12 Madeira finish that came out a while back. The depth, complexity and diversity of Springbank cannot be overstated. I'd love to get into a Springer 21, or some older bottlings. When people say 'a cracking good dram' Springbank is the first thing that 'springs' to mind!

    Poured myself Springbank 14yr CS Amontillado and it knocking me on my @$$ - it's a stunner of a Scotch... Clean sherry flavors & no sulphur tones to speak of.

    Re: Foreign Whisky of the Month - 09/2013: Springbank

    Springbank is a distillery I really don't want to tell other people about (apart from close friends) because when word gets out people will be all over it. Sadly word has gotten out because Springbank has stopped offering private bottlings of single barrels for stores because they need all the whisky for their standard range and special releases.

    I think Springbank is a rough and tumble whisky but it's such a good rough and tumble whisky. When I'm not in the mood for a peaty whisky or a fruity and smooth Speyside, I always reach for a Springbank.
