Springbank 1995 Single Cask 20 Year Old / Special Boat Service

This is an incredibly rare bottling of Springbank that was released privately to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of Operation Chariot carried out by the Special Boat Service in 1942.

Operation Chariot was the code name of the infamous Commando raid on St Nazaire, a German naval base on the Loire, and was an early test for the newly formed Special Boat Service (SBS). Operation Chariot has been described in history as one of the most successful Commando raids of World War Two, despite the heavy losses.

Bottled in 2012 from cask #542 only 200 bottles were created, this is bottle number 17.  

Please note that these decanters were not sealed at bottling though the stopper is tight and the liquid appears authentic.
