Happy Friday! It's September, the sun is shining in the Bay Area, and Labor Day weekend is upon us. You know what you need for the big three day haul, right? You need old, high proof, delicious single malt whisky from our friends at Springbank. We just snagged our annual single cask allocation from the distillery's 18+ year old rarities, as well as from the company's independent bottling arm Cadenhead. Those who went gaga for that 26 year old sherry cask of Highland Park a while back can now rejoice in the arrival of its sister barrel: a 28 year butt of magnificence!
We've got multiple Springbanks to show you, as well has a rare single cask of Hazelburn: Springbank's triple distilled delight. There's not much available (surprise, surprise), but the quality is there and fans of Campeltown should be pleased. Springbank is also one of the only distilleries whose official single casks are always cheaper than the independent ones. Our 18 year old sherry butt cask of Springbank 18 year from Hunter Laing was $300 retail last year. Many of these less expensive by comparison and they come straight from the source, out of some of the oldest warehouses in the country.
