First distilled in 1973, Longrow is the double distilled, heavily peated style Single Malt from the Springbank Distillery. The Longrow 18 years uses peat dried malt for 48 hours to give  a unique Campbeltown-style smoky character. Less than 100 casks of Longrow are filled each year and this one bottled in 2021 is matured in 30% bourbon, 60% sherry and 10% chardonnay casks Nose: sweet fruits, vanilla, oak with smoke and maritime notes Palate: very creamy and oily mouth feel with grapefruits, passion fruit, caramel and more red fruits Finish: wonderful balance of salty smoke and subtle sweetness of some dark fruits perhaps coming from the refill sherry cask with a dry and long finish.
