Springbank 1965 Lombard / No. 1 The Golfing Greats
Lombard was a company originally based on the Isle of Man. Although blending was their chief concern, they began to acquire stocks of well-selected single malt in the 1960s, the legacy of which has provided some fantastic independent releases.
This is a wonderful bottle, Springbank distilled on the 30th April 1965 and matured for 26 years before being bottled in January 1991 for the US market.
Springbank distillery has been owned and operated by the Mitchell family in Campbeltown since 1837, and it one of Scotland's most revered distilleries. Following a brief mothballing between 1979 and 1987, upon the reopening the decision was taken to cease all sales to the blending industry and focus on its single malt sales. Today it is one of the only distilleries to malt, distil, bottle and mature whisky on the same site, and produces three distinct and highly prized single malts.
