Product Description

The third release under the "Local Barley" series from Springbank and the youngest and strongest yet after previous releases at 16 and 11 years old.

2017 release and only 9000 bottles released

70% Bourbon & 30% Sherry cask aged.

Nose: Creamy goats cheese, singed straw, malted milk biscuits, vanilla cheesecake, almond pastry, cream soda pop in a hayloft! Touches of chocolate lime sweets, barley water squash and ever so delicate smoke (smoked sugared almonds?)

Palate: Key lime pie, vanilla cheesecake, more sugared almonds and marzipan, citrussy-sherbet dip like body. That elegant singed barley or toasted oak smoke from the nose but again very subtle and elegant allowing a fresh and grassy mouthfeel.

Finish: Spiced cookies, freshly baked pastries, honey glaze, fresh cereal, sugared almonds and hints of something salty and smoky in a distant field of  freshly harvested barley.

Very elegant and delicate for its abv, well poised and sure to be another in demand limited release from this classic campbeltown distillery.
