Springbank 12 year old Cask Strength batches

Springbank don’t add the batch number to their bottles of the massively wonderful and wholly recommended 12 year old CS.  This causes lots of confusion for retailers and customers, if they want to go by the batch number.  David Allen was good enough to provide me with a definitive list, which I provide here for the education and enjoyment of all.  You can identify the batch by the (so far unique) alcohol ABV.
EDIT: Feb 10 2014 - added batch 10
Batch # Year Month ABV
1 2010 January 54.6%
2 2010 September 58.5%
3 2011 September 55.3%
4 2012 February 55.1%
5 2012 August 52.2%
6 2013 January 53.1%
7 2013 July 50.3%
8 2014 January 52.3%
9 2014 July 54.3%
10 2015 February 53.2%
