Fans of heavily peated single malts are always happy when Longrow is in town! Matured in a combo of bourbon and sherry casks, this double distilled expression is a classic offering from Campeltown’s Springbank 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.
Overall: A great entry-level offering from Longrow perfect for Islay fans looking for something a bit different.
