Springbank usually works very well young, the current Local Barley is no exception. In general, much has already been said about the cheeky prices that are being called up shortly after publication. If you can keep in mind, you do not have to re-themerate every time. The issue price for the Cadenheads Campbeltown Shop (86 GBP) is in any case (by today's standards) still in order. Too bad he has a little alcoholic sting in his nose.
In the first contact very intense and with a small touch to the alcoholic - you should treat your time in the glass.
But now, about 10 minutes later: A delicious-refreshing nose with exotic fruits, as you can find in slightly modified form in one or the other batch of 10yo from the standard range, hot melon, papaya, mango, oranges. In addition, spice of nutmeg, rosemary and basil, clearly mineral. The proportion of Sherryfass- or Portfassreifung is not much to make out, but in my opinion would not really fit - the nose is good as it is. Rapeseed, sugar beet syrup, soft fudge, Cafe au Lait.
Starts pleasantly with a fruit cocktail of papaya, tangerine, orange, mango, passion fruit. Slightly dry and spicy from the start.
Once taken a sip, the nose is a bit more attractive than it already is. Caramelized sugar, honey, cereals, yeast dough. The seasoning gets tainted over time. Maritime notes, salt water, damp stone beach, machine oil.
Medium long and dry with old wood shavings from the joinery (or is that a little bit of smoke? Difficult to differentiate). An echo of the exotic fruits from the nose and the palate, still the (love it or hate it) delicious and for Springbank so typical mineral note ...
