The Local Barley Series is one of the most highly anticipated Springbank releases and this year's edition is no exception. Initially planned to be a series of just five bottles, due to its popularity the plan is to keep this as part of the Springbank range as an annual limited release. Each year, Springbank uses different barley varieties, grown by different local farmers and up until now either matured fully in bourbon or mainly bourbon with some sherry influence. This year's edition bucks that trend, release an expression that is 100% Sherry matured. Bottled at 10 Years Old, made from Belgravia Barley grown at Glencraigs Farm, located just 2.5 miles from the distillery.
Nose: Rich, fruity and nutty with notes of raisins and prunes, a hint of bitter dark chocolate, espresso coffee beans and walnuts.
Palate: Elegantly rich and creamy. Sweet creme brulee and a touch of zesty orange peel. Sweet and spicy with a hint of nutmeg.
Finish: The finish opens to give flavours of juicy soaked maraschino cherries, delicious caramel shortcake with a coastal briny influence towards the end.
