Distillery Notes:

2024 Edition

The Local Barley is an annual release made from barley grown in or around Campbeltown. Each year a local farmer is commissioned to grow barley on our behalf to continue producing this ‘grain to glass’ limited edition.

Different farms, barley varieties, cask maturations and length of time the whisky spends in the casks from one batch to the next allow our customers a unique tasting experience every time.

Springbank Local Barley 13yo 54.1%
60% Bourbon, 40.0% Sherry
Farm: Glencraigs
Barley Variety: Belgravia

Tasting Notes:

Nose: On the nose, this whisky is packed full of fruitiness, ripened bananas, boiled sweets and cinnamon.

Palate: Initially, the thick, chewy and oily texture of this whisky is evident. From there, we get a peppery and malty note, then strawberries, brandy schnapps and parma violets.

Finish: Into the finish there’s subtle peat smoke hiding in the background, wine gum sweetness, toasted oats, dunnage earthiness and a slight drying taste.

Awards/Reviews:

"Nose: It’s the vibrant fruits that stand out. Tinned pineapple, nectarines and mangos, as well as some steeped barley, salty liquorice and citrus-y gelato. The smoke is almost non-existent but adds an important layer of complexity.

Taste: Proper oiliness and a decent waxiness. Hints of charred lemons, wet pebbles, petrichor and a sprinkle of salt, accompanied by wood smoke, peat, some coffee grounds and earthy liquorice root, but also a sliver of chocolate and subtle yellow fruits.

Finish: Long. Lingering smoke, peach and lots of minerality. A sliver of mint too.

Really good Springbank with a fruity, mineral edge. The citrus notes, waxiness and salinity all add to the experience. Those who managed to secure a bottle should consider themselves lucky." - Words Of Whisky
