Springbank 9 Year Local Barley Single Malt Scotch

The fourth release in a series of five Local Barley releases. Nose is very rich and full-bodied. Hints of tar and kerosene, with a whiff of bonfire smoke. It’s not all hell and brimstones though, far from it. There’s a honey-like sweetness, accompanied by cookie dough and sprinkles of lemon zest and grapefruit, as well as a subtle maritime influence that shows more minerals with time. Palate is heavy and oily, with a big initial hit of lemon zest and lime, as well as pink grapefruit. Whispers of nectarines too. Followed by some brine and soft peat smoke, as well as a hint of menthol. So, so good. Produced with Optic barley from the High Cattadale Farm and bottled at 57.7% ABV.
