A 13 year old Campbeltown single malt from the Springbank distillery, released under the Longrow name – so expect a good kick of peat with this one! For this release, the whisky was finished in Malbec casks for 15 months after 12 years in bourbon casks.

Nose: A very coastal beginning; sea salt with a fresh breeze, then becomes fruity; sweet cocktail cherries, blackberries and red currants. A faint and subtle note of cigar boxes and tobacco comes through.

Palate: The fruitiness continues with rhubarb crumble, stewed apples and juicy plums. Current ham follows with a very soft and delicate touch of peat with more coastal sea salt notes.

Finish: Red wine tannins dominate, combined with smouldering campfire smoke and the ever present fresh fruit notes of prunes and cherries.
