Longrow is a double distilled, 100% peated malt whisky from the distillers at Springbank in Campbeltown. They have been producing Longrow since 1973 as an experiment to prove that it was possible to produce Islay-style single malt on the mainland. This unique Campbeltown offering is first aged in ex-bourbon barrels for 11 years then finished in Burgundy hogsheads before being bottled at cask strength (112 proof) and release in a limited offering of 7,800 bottles.

Tasting Notes

"Robust aromas of whisky-soaked cherries, dark fruits, and strawberries, meld with rich, dark chocolate-drizzled hazelnuts, hints of dry hay and toasted oak. The palate speaks of Christmases past at grandma’s house with notes of old furniture, smoked cherry tobacco, homemade fruitcake and butterscotch pudding, with grainy cereal notes and hints of fennel on the tail-end. There is a lot of big oaky and savory elements that string out in a sexy, lingering finish with spicy ginger, white pepper, fennel, grilled pears and wisps of peat smoke. "
