Springbank 12 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky $59.99 - I got a fantastic price on this and I bought everything available.  They sent me a sample of this ages ago, but it didn't arrive until now.  This is a limited release from Springbank and it's fantastic.  More like the 10 year than the 15, this is an oily, dense and savory malt.  It has all the nuance of the 10, but more power and a bit more richness.  The 10 year Springbank is my favorite malt in the world, so getting an updated version of it is exciting.  Chewy fruits, supple and gum-smacking textures, hints of smoke, power on the palate, long on the finish.  Get it while it's around.
