The Springbank Local Barley 11yo is available NOW!
Springbank Local Barley 11yo (53.1%)
Our 2nd release of the Springbank Local Barley series uses barley from Aros Farm near Machrihanish airport, with the Barley type being the historical Bere Barley and bottled as an 11Y/O at 53.1%.
We used 13 tonnes of Barley across 4 hectares - I will be perfectly honest with you guys, I have no idea how big a hectare is, let alone 4 of them, but it sounds like a lot. So after 11 years in 26 Bourbon casks there are now approximately 9,000 bottles available worldwide.
Nose: Freshly baked bread with sweet notes of sun dried bananas to contrast with the salted caramel topping
Taste: The promise given in the nose delivers, a lovely creaminess and sweetness of grapes, custard, honeycomb and marshmallow.
Finish: There’s a nutty quality about this, almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts as wellness an air of indulgence, rich and buttery with an elegant finish that keeps on giving.
A true Campbeltown dram that needs to be opened and enjoyed amongst friends.
