Springbank 9yo Local Barley

We are pleased to announce the release of 2 new bottlings - 1 from Springbank and 1 from Mitchell’s Glengyle.

 

Both the Springbank 9yo Local Barley and Kilkerran 8yo Cask Strength are available to buy in the UK from today - Tuesday 13th November.

 

Springbank 9yo Local Barley 57.7%

 

Matured in 80% Bourbon casks and 20% Sherry casks, this release is the fourth in our series of 5 annual bottlings from barley grown in the local area. For this year’s release we used Optic barley that was grown at High Cattadale Farm.

 

Nose: Traditional Springbank aromas; saltiness, sea shells and fresh oysters bursting through. Followed just as intensely by pepper-jack cheese, honeycomb and vanilla pods.

 

Palate: Whipped cream, pear drops and a heathery note are quickly engulfed by barley water, sherbet mix, sugar cane, nectarines and dandelions.

 

Finish: A gentle dry peat circulates before squashed plums, raisins, cracked pepper and dry straw emerge.

 

Please Note:

 

  • This is not a Society exclusive bottle.

  • The Campbeltown Cadenhead Shop is selling this product for £86.00.

  • The Society discount does not apply to this bottle .

 

Kilkerran 8yo Cask Strength 56.5%

 

The latest edition of the Kilkerran 8yo Cask Strength from Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery. Matured in 100% Bourbon casks and bottled at 56.5% abv.

 

Nose: The exquisite nose begins with a gentle hint of worn leather and pipe tobacco. Changing now to a much sweeter note with sponge cake, vanilla pods and clotted cream combining with some citrus and fruits in the form of key lime pie and green apple skins.

 

Palate: Good cask influence here with lots of sweetness from the bourbon casks. Golden syrup cake, banoffee pie and toasted marshmallows are just some of the desserts you could find in this dram.

 

Finish: The light peat becomes more apparent on the finish, along with an earthy dunnage note typical of Campbeltown whisky. This is followed by a herbal grassy note, marzipan and grape peel.
