    What are these prices screwed up!? I bought it two years ago for 290Fr.- and am extremely disappointed. It wasn't well received by our whisky club either (rating 3.58 out of a possible 5, corresponding to about WB 85-87).

    One of the more industrial, dirty and austere versions in this wave of Single Casks, very well done but not as charming as others. If you like the dirty SB DNA with chalk, parget dust, linoleum, dry earth, dirty potatoes and artichokes, then go seek this one out ;)

  4. shend1982 scored this whisky 95 points Newbie

    An attractive Springbank single Casks, and ranked in the top 3 cask from which came in 2016 on the market, in total 15 casks I think.

    The taste is pretty much the same as the German edition - same rating:

    I could talk with somebody from the Springbank distillery during the WhiskySchiff 2016 event at the lake Zurich and it turned out that the release of all these single casks wasn't planned like this. The reason is mainly that the Springbank distillery didn't get the enough strong boxes for the regular 21yo bottlings and they had to change to a different packaging (light cardboard). With this they decided pretty much adhoc that they would also bottle the 21yo at cask strength. Thus this was probably a single event and there are no further single cask releases planned like this.

    This year Springbank decided to drive collectors crazy spreading 15 single casks – bottled at cask strength - around the world.
    So far I know of 8: UK, USA, Belgium (The Nectar), Netherlands (Fourcroy), Italy, Switzerland (Lateltin), Taiwan and Germany (Hanseatische)
    Please let me know if you know of more editions!
