Longrow 18 70cl 46% ABV

£275.00

Description

Named after another lost distillery of Campbeltown (which once operated right next door to Springbank and whose warehouse now houses our bottling hall), Longrow was first produced in 1973 to provide a peaty, oily and robust component to a blend being created at the time. More heavily peated and double distilled, it has been a staple in the production calendar since the 1990s.

An absolute gem of a whisky here, Longrow 18 year old is a double distilled, heavily peated single malt from Springbank distillery in Campbeltown. Longrow was first created as an experiment to make a peated whisky in Campbeltown, but its popularity grew thanks to its brazen, muscular character.

Nose Apple peels, and smoke. Earthy peat, damp leaves, notes of truffle, woodshed, porridge oats and soot.

Palate Peaty with notes of spice. Very oily, with hints of orange zest, pepper and chilli. Very “big”. Kippers, smoked meats and honey.

Finish Spicy and oily, with notes of dark, earthy peat.
