Product Description

This spectacular vintage Springbank was distilled in June 1973, matured (unusually) in a rum butt for 18 years and then specially bottled by Wm Cadenhead in September 1991. Two versions were released, this is the much deeper and darker coloured 57.9% ABV bottling.

Some folk were upset with the use of a rum butt, whilst others championed it - namely the WhiskyFun guys, who awarded this natural cask strength beauty a whopping 93 points!

The fill level is mid-to-high-shoulder, see image for detail.
