Longrow, 18YO (700ml)
Single Malt Campbeltown Whisky
An absolute gem of a whisky, 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, and its popularity grew quickly thanks to its brazen, muscular character.
The whisky is matured in two barrel types, 75% in sherry casks and 25% in bourbon casks.
Only 4,800 bottles of the complex single malt are produced each year, bottled at 46% ABV.

Palate: Peaty with notes of spiced honey. Very oily, with hints of orange zest, pepper and chili. Kippers, smoked meats and honey.
Finish: Spicy and oily, with notes of dark, earthy peat.
