First distilled in 1973, Longrow is produced with a double distillation and heavily peated malt in an attempt to prove that it was possible to produce an Islay-style whisky on the mainland of Scotland. This rare dram hails from the Campbeltown region of Scotland and highlights a 100% peated single malt whisky. This heavily peated malt was first aged in ex-bourbon barrels for 7 years before it spent its last 4 years maturing in former cabernet sauvignon hogsheads. It is bottled at 104 proof. This truly unique and special whisky will make a great addition to any single malt library, specifically rounding out the limited reach of the Campbeltown portion of your collection. Although it is a limited release, you should also be able to find it at some of the most esoteric of whisky houses and bottle shops.

Tasting Notes

"Gentle peat greets the nose as your glass comes up to your face, followed by big jammy berries with hints of creamy chocolate covered nougat and air-cured salty, smoked meats. If the nose was unctuous, the palate is biting with bold and salty smoke reminiscent of a bonfire on the beach at low-tide. This is followed by creamy, chewy toffee and butterscotch candies drizzled with sweet blackberry syrup. The finish is long, like a well told story, winding through the depths of flavors from smoke and peat to sweet caramel and cooked berries. "
