Springbank Rundlets and Kilderkins Single Scotch Malt Whisky

Discontinued Limited Edition.
Total number of bottles 9000.
Springbank Rundlets and Kilderkins Casks.
The Rundlets & Kilderkins refer to the barrel sizes used during maturation. 15 and 18 gallons (Imperial) respectively.
These Casks are quite a bit smaller than the normal hogshead (2/7ths and 1/3rd the size).
Or a bourbon barrel (3/5ths and 2/3rds the size).
The maturing spirit gets more wood contact, allowing it to get more influence from the wood and thus ‘mature’ faster.
