Springbank 16YO Local Bottling Note

The Springbank distillery in Campbeltown has released Local Barley expressions before, though there hasn't been one quite a while - until now! This 16 Year Old Local Barley is the first in a series of five expressions to be released over five years. They have used barley grown at Low Machrimore Farm in Southend, which is just a few miles outside of Campbeltown. 9,000 bottles were produced.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Authentic seaside fudge, chock-full of vanilla, alongside a touch of sea breeze and dried fruit.

Palate: More fruit (think ripe pear and a hint of chewy raisin), buttery biscuits and subtle smoky peat.

Finish: The finish goes on and on, with developing smoke from the peat.

SUPERB SPRINGBANK

This expression is my favorite. I think that this is one of the higher expression of Springbank ever made!

Finish goes on forever, simply spectacular!

Amazing flavors still linger on your palate long after the drink is gone, but more so with sweet/fruit flavors while the smoke/peat is much more subdued on the finish (although certainly there on the palate in classic Springbank fashion). Sipped on this with a few friends alongside Bunnahabain 25yr and Glenfarclas 40yr, and the finish was so amazing on the local barley that it made it the top choice among all of us.

I've only recently dabbled in single malts, but have many years experienced with rare bourbons. The only bourbons i've had with a comparable finish are PVW 15yr, and perhaps old Stitzel-Weller bottlings.

Superb!

From a neat pour this quality Springbank starts out slightly unbridled but soon sets into a lovely, buttery dram. Rooted in delicious and distinctive core Springbank notes (think Springbank 10) start to finish, just packaged in a more smooth, buttered expression where the peat really shines!

For you lucky ones who snagged a bottle, don't hoard it for flipping... open this beauty and enjoy!!
