Official Springbank Notes:
This Springbank Local Barley was bottled at 56.2% abv and is the 5th in our series of annual releases distilled from barley grown locally in the areas surrounding Campbeltown. This year it is Optic barley that has been used and it was grown especially for us, 11 years ago at High Cattadale farm. The whisky was matured in 77% Bourbon casks, 20% Sherry casks and 3% Port casks and there are approximately 9000 bottles available worldwide.
Nose: Sweet and slightly spicy with hints of honey, Demerara sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Light peat smoke and a dusty characteristic reminiscent of freshly milled barley
Palate: Tropical and soft fruit sweetness. Ripe pineapple, mango and juicy peaches are complimented by a building peat smoke. Green tea and a coppery tone follow.
Finish: Creamy, buttery mouthfeel with light integrated peat smoke and a coastal salty influence.
