Longrow Peated Campbeltown Single Malt Whisky 700ml
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Campbeltown Whisky
Longrow is the name given to the peated whisky made at the Springbank distillery. The aroma starts with creamy desiccated coconut, white pepper and a hint of salty brine, with the peat smoke lingering in the background. Sweet and incredibly oily on the palate, it becomes peppery and dry on the finish, with smouldering peat bonfire smoke and a musty, earthy spice. The peat smoke found in Longrow is very balanced and integrated, making it very well suited to those looking to bridge the gap between an unpeated mainland and heavily peated Islay style.
Nose: Salt and a leathery smokiness come to the fore in a maritime combination, like a Harbourmaster's Jacket.
Palate: Light and sweet with notes of green grapes and rhubarb, a great contrast to the nose. Then comes a big blast of smoke.
Finish: That salty smokiness returns from the nose providing a deeply satisfying ending.
