The third of the three single malts made at Springbank, Longrow is an Islay style peated whisky. Like Hazelburn, Longrow was an old Campbeltown distillery. Longrow has gained something of a cult following amongst peat freaks. As well as the CV, Longrow have a 10, 14 and 18 year old in their standard range. They also do regular special releases that sell out quickly.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Massively fruity (pineapple?) and juicy. Pine nuts. Blood oranges. An undertow of coal tar soap.
Palate: Initially light and fruity, then, slowly, the peat and wood spice erupt onto the palate. The finish is deliciously smooth with soaring fruit and vanilla and toasted coconut
Retails for around £35
