Description

First distilled in 1973 Longrow is a double distilled, heavily peated single malt produced at Springbank Distillery and was first created as an experiment to make a peated whisky in Campbeltown, but today it has become very popular, thanks to its brazen, muscular character.

Springbank distillery is the oldest independent, family-owned distillery in Scotland. Legal distillation began in 1828. The chairman is Hedley Wright, the great, great grandson of John Mitchell, the first legal distiller of Springbank whisky.

There are a few Scottish distilleries that still malt barley but Springbank is the only distillery which malts 100% of its own barley, using the traditional floor maltings.

The whole production process: malting, milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturation and bottling, happens on the one site in Campbeltown which is unique in Scotland.

The malt is peat dried for up to 48 hours to give the whisky a unique Campbeltown-style smoky character. Less than 1000 casks of Longrow are filled each year.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Golden Hay.
Nose: This whisky has an incredibly sweet nose with some savory notes peeking through. Marshmallows in abundance - the vanilla variety, with icing sugar and foam bananas adding to the sweetness. Upon further nosing the fruit makes an appearance, brambles, mandarines and over ripe damson fruits. Some savory notes pushing through such as linseed oil - do we smell cricket bats?
Palate: This dram coats your palate in a waxy fashion with its continuing sweet flavours as described on the nose. But there is also the familiar, well balanced trace of smoke which makes this a brilliantly complex wee dram that will make you feel right at home no matter where you are.
Finish: The creaminess of this whisky means it doesn't go away - you feel the warmth of this Longrow all the way down to your boots, creamy, sweet with a gentle smoke finish.

Rich and smoky yet smooth. This is a true Scottish whisky, a little 'rough around the edges' if you will, however it is perfect for easy drinking evenings. Tradition and simplicity is at the heart of Longrow's operation and this is reflected in these bottles.
