Longrow 18 Year Old 2016
70cl / 46% abv
A heavily peated, twice-distilled Single Malt from the Springbank Distillery of Campbeltown.
This new 2016 bottling of the Longrow 18 Year Old differs from previous releases by being matured in 60% rum casks and 40% refill sherry casks, where previously it had been matured in 100% sherry casks.
Nose: Spicy with cinnamon and ginger, notes of pear drops and pastry coming through too.
Palate: Very buttery with ginger notes developing into marzipan and coconut. Juicy apples and a thick sweetness of sugar cane molasses emerging thanks to the influence of the rum casks.
Finish: Peat and spice with hints of nutmeg and burnt embers.
