Limited Release

Springbank Distillery Local Barley 16 Y.O. 53.3%

Joe writes,

This is the first of 5 releases of Local Barley and is limited to 9000 bottles for the world. The barley was grown only 12 miles from the distillery.

Springbank is one of the few distilleries that malts its own barley Springbank is also family owned, small, niche, and doing it very well. After some sporadic releases, they are now back on track but allocations are still small - It is not always easy to get a bottle of the limited releases . They are definitely worth the trouble.

"Barley, damp earth, sea salt and citrus fruits on the lightly peated nose. The buttery palate yields spicy peat, orchard fruits, and more earthiness, closing with smoky lemon." Gavin Smith - Whiskey Advocate

This is a wonderful Springbank. Although there is peat, it's not overbearing, and works really well. This is Old School Single Malt , the way it should be.

$199.99 - 12 Bottles available
