Springbank 10 Year Local Barley
Peated Single Malt
Springbank // Campbeltown, Scotland
The third of five annual releases, this expression is part of the 'Local Barley' range from Springbank. It was made using Belgravia barley grown at West Back Farm, located a mere 4 miles from Springbank Distillery. After being milled, mashed, fermented and distilled at the distillery, it matured in 70% bourbon casks and 30% sherry casks. Approximately 9.000 bottles were released.

"With a balance that is top-notch, this Springbank opens up on citrus notes, with ripe, luscious oranges leading the way. The peat influence is surprisingly mellow. The palate is properly oily, with a light touch of brine and tobacco leaves. There's some vanilla and honey too, but they are secondary. The finish is drying with a touch of salt."
