Longrow Peated, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
Springbank distillery first produced heavily peated spirit in 1973, naming it after Longrow, a lost distillery from Campbeltown. Less than 100 casks of this are filled each year at the distillery.
Nose: Salt and a leathery smokiness come to the fore in a maritime combination, like a Harbourmaster'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.
