What they say:

A double distilled, heavily peated single malt from Springbank, Longrow was first created as an experiment to make a peated whisky in Campbeltown, but today it has become very popular, thanks to its brazen, muscular character.

Colour: Amber / full gold

Nose: Apple peels, and smoke. Earthy peat, damp leaves, notes of truffle, woodshed, porridge oats and soot.

Palate: Peaty with notes of spicy. Very oily, with hints of orange zest, pepper and chili. Very “big”. Kippers, smoked meats and honey.

Finish: Spicy and oily, with notes of dark, earthy peaty.
