Thanks to /u/smoked_herring for this dram.
Springbank. Can they do anything wrong? News at 11.
Oh, wait, I write things like this. I can’t wait until 11. Also it’s international. I didn’t think this through at all.
A few years ago Springbank released their 12 year old single cask series. Different cask types, a simple label, full details, and cask strength. Of these, the sherry casks were: An amontillado, a cream sherry, a fino, and this one, an Oloroso.
Sales were slow for all of them, not just Springbank 12 1996 Single Cask Oloroso Sherry Butt, so when they brought out 14 year versions, with little price change, people grabbed them. Not just sherry this time, after all.
I’ve relegated my hopes to trying these only if they pop up, and was lucky enough to find the 14 rum cask (news at 11… I mean, in my archives).
