Longrow, Peated (700ml)
Peated Single Malt Whisky
46% ABV, NAS
Longrow is peated spirit from Springbank Distillery - and it shows! The same hand-crafted attention to detail is evident here, just a bit smokier!
The first distillation of Longrow was carried out as an experiment when Springbank's chairman set out to prove that it was possible to produce a heavily peated, Islay-style single malt whisky on the mainland. Longrow was distilled again a few years later and has since become an important part of Springbank's portfolio, with regular distillation having taken place since 1992.
Nose: Salt and a leathery smokiness come to the fore in a maritime combination, like a weathered fisherman's jacket.
Palate: Light and sweet with notes of green grapes and rhubarb, a great contrast to the nose. Then comes a big blast of smoke.
Finish: That salty smokiness returns from the nose providing a deeply satisfying ending.
