Looking for some old Springbanks?

December 18th, 2007

I recently received an email from someone who has to unload two Springbanks which some of you might be interested in. His name is Chris and, for financial reasons, has to sell them.

The first bottle is Springbank 21 year old, which we all know is a great whisky and pretty hard to find. The second is a 1965 vintage, 31 year old Springbank that came from a private cask owner. Here’s what Chris has to say about it:

“The cask is from Hugh Gallagher.  One of the largest private land holders in Ireland.  His father bought the cask for him.  He’s my son’s godfather.”

I don’t know Chris and have no financial involvement in this. But, I know how great some of these older Springbanks can be and, if I can help to find a good home for them, then I will have done my good deed for the day. You can email him at:
