The 9 year old Barolo Cask Matured was released in 2016. It was matured for 6 years in ex-bourbon and then transfered into casks which had been used to mature Springbank. The original used of the casks was to hold Barolo wine, a type of red wine made from the Nebbiolo grape which originates in the Piedmont region in Northern Italy. Nebbiolo produces wines which can be very tannic when young, but offers increased balance and a wider array of fruity and herbal notes as they age.
