**SELLING ON A BEHALF OF A PRIVATE CLIENT**

Distilled from 100% Bere barley, grown in Campbeltown region. Distilled Feb 2006, fully matured in 100% ex-bourbon casks, bottled Feb 2017. Second release in the LB series. Non-chill filtered, natural colour. 9,000 bottles.

Region: Campbeltown

Colour: Pale gold.
 
Nose: Lovely. Loads of waxy / unwashed lemon wedges, rich egg custard that is hardly sweetened but with a touch of vanilla. Dusty hay and a touch of spearmint. Sea spray and dried grapefruit around the edges. Dried herbs with a slight earthy peat smoke. More time adds sugared almonds.
 
Texture: Medium weight, oily & creamy. A little dirtier than the nose suggested. Slight heat but very pleasant.
 
Taste: Creamy egg custard again, but no vanilla this time, and again barely sweetened. Soft earthy peat behind it. Touch of dirty engine oil, sharp lemon which builds as the peat recedes. Touch of sweetened grapefruit and grassy malt, then those sugared almonds again with a good pinch of sea salt.
 
Finish: Medium-long length. Touch of spirit-y heat, turning into white pepper when that creaminess comes through again. Then the lemon wedges, almost salted lemons now, touches of clove spice & petrol. Surprising creamy milk chocolate note in the background as it winds up.
