Longrow Single Malt Scotch 10yr

The name of an old Campbeltown distillery, Longrow was first distilled at Springbank in 1973. This whisky is double distilled in the traditional Scottish manner from malt dried entirely over a peat fire. It has inspired an obsessive cult following, due to its powerful peat smoke character and partly due to its very limited availability. Colour: Pale straw Nose: Unmistakeable. Dry, pungent peat smoke and subtle tar notes. Palate: Dominant peat character. A delicate vanilla sweetness from the bourbon casks subtly asserts its presence to give the perfect balance. Finish: The sweetness subsides and gives way to an intense peaty, smoky finale.
