The classic creamy, heavily peated Longrow from Campbeltown’s Springbank distillery.
Flavoured by lingering kiln smoke, this is a smoky whisky unique to the region and on par with any peated whisky in the country.
Distillery tasting notes:
Nose: Very creamy, vanilla custard. The smoke develops and toasted marshmallows, herbs and rich fruits appear over time.
Palate: Incredibly well balanced – rich and creamy with a slight medicinal hint. The smoke is always present and washes over the palate in waves.
Finish: The gentle smoke lingers and lingers.
Springbank is one of Scotland’s most historic distilleries and one of the most sought-after by Scotch enthusiasts. An icon of the Campbeltown region, it is arguably the most hand-made whisky made from a distillery that has survived from the Victorian era. They are one of the last distilleries to have their own maltings – and certainly one of the very few to malt 100 percent of their requirements on site.
The distillery produces three types of malt for whisky. Springbank is two-and-a-bit times distilled and lightly peated, Longrow is double distilled and heavily peated and Hazelburn is triple distilled and unpeated.
