A store in JHB, only had 1 of these. Also had 2 x 16yo and 5 x 12yo. One of the 16 is for me and [mention]morkhans [/mention] took the other 16 and a 12.
Have seen the 16 and the 12 quite often. Seems to be bit more available. Damn would love a heavily peated

It seems like the annual releases have different cask ratios. Might be worth to try out the 2021 releases. I'm waiting on a sample of the 2021 12 year old to compare.

I have a 12 from 2021, not sure if it is a 21 or 20. Sure there would be slight variation between the years. But sounds like all high quality at least

There should be a date code printed on the glass, just below where the barcode is on the label.
e.g. 15.09.21

I've done a few of these tours during the time I've been into whiskey but nobody has been as candid as Springbank with regards to the details of their process.

Some old stuff in that warehouse. One of nine.
Was my favourite tour too on a recent visit, thought this pic summed up the vibe of the place best

Anyone know how I can trade these? Looking to get rid of them. Not sure if this is even the right thread so excuse me in advance.

Thank you
