The Springbank 10 Year Old Local Barley was released in late 2019 and was a huge hit around Scotland and beyond. As a result, stocks soon dwindled, with stores around the world selling out. Thankfully, more bottles of this liquid gold are on the horizon, so if you want to get your hands on this exceptional expression, pre-order today.
Created at the famous Springbank distillery using Optic barley grown at the local High Cattadale Farm, it was then matured in a combination of three different cask types – 77% bourbon casks, 20% sherry casks and 3% Port pipes. This helped to create a natural, fruity and incredibly smooth expression that offers a drinking experience that you’ll remember for some time to come.
It brings sugared peels, sweet roasted barley and a smidgen of charred oak on the nose, followed by tropical fruits that dance on your palate before a gentle breeze of smoke cuts through the sweetness and sets up the finish. The finish brings subtle sea-salt, sweet mangos, lashing of vanilla and sticky toffee. It’s a truly natural and honest dram that every whisky-lover should experience. We can see why the first 9,000 bottle batch sold out so fast!
Note: This is a pre order bottle. Shipping will start on the 1st week of May.
