    Hi all. 

    I want to buy my first campbeltown whisky bottle. 

    Can you recommend me a good campbeltown bottle below 40€? 

    I heard good reviews of Springbank 10? It has campbeltown original soul? Typical region flavours,  I mean. 

    Thank you,  guys.

    If you want to get a taste of Campbeltown, you can't go wrong with the 10 year old Springbank.

    as we know Cambelltown is tiny and out of the way, as compared to the other regions and thus pretty expensive, at least here in Chicago, Springbank 10 is $60, the 12 cask strength, which is an outstanding whisky is about $80, not the cheapest product line, but definitely very high quality, the other Springbank products, Hazelburn and  Longrow (peated) are also about $60 for their basic bottle, the other working distillery, Glen Scotia is typically closer to $75-$100

    If you can find it, try the Kilkerran 12 from Glengyle distilery. It's run by the same folks that own Springbank
    I had a couple of the Works in Progress so when the 12 yo. made it through customs here in California
    I picked up a six pack & I'm glad I did.  Ralfy did a review and gave it 90/100

    I would also recommend the Springbank 10 because it contains a little bit of smoke. This makes it very interesting and complex.

    Springbank 10 is superb for me. I tried it just couple of months ago and I was surprised by the quality and complexity of a  just10 year old. Excellent dram. Go for it
