Springbank Distillery Tour

So I just arrived in Scotland the day before, and while the journey was rather long I’ve finally made it to Campbeltown! So after a fun night of good seafood and whisky with my dad at the Ardshiel Hotel it’s now time for the main attraction that most visitors of the white sandy shores of Campbeltown are keen to enjoy, the whisky tours! For the … Continue reading Springbank Distillery Tour

Springbank 9 Local Barley / Springbank 19 1996 Port Cask

Thanks to /u/xile_ for these samples. In a recent online discussion, someone brought up that Springbank was now so popular that the price is stopping people from being able to afford it, thus making it harder to buy, thus screwing more people at trying it, and here we are.

Kilkerran WIP 7 Sherry Wood & Kilkerran WIP 7 Bourbon Wood Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/ScotchChick and /u/boyd86 for pouring these whiskies for me. Kilkerran, from the Glengyle distillery. Why not call it Glenglye? Because there was another Glengyle in Campbeltown, and we’re trying to keep things all tickity-boo and working, alright? Otherwise we’d be keeping things confusing. Kilkerran is the new kid in class. The interesting one who has a clean slate. Any flaws they have been viewed as interesting. Do… Continue reading Kilkerran WIP 7 Sherry Wood & Kilkerran WIP 7 Bourbon Wood Cask Strength
