The latest in the Longrow Red series whereby the whisky spends time in ex-red wine casks, this edition has seen the inside of Chilean Cab Sav casks.
The heavily peated label from Springbank in Campbeltown, Longrow is flavoured by lingering kiln smoke and is a smoky whisky unique to the region and on par with any peated whisky in the country.
Bottled at 51.6% and aged 13 years.
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.
