Longrow Burgundy Wood

Country: Scotland
Region: Campbeltown
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 56.1%
Score: 87 points

This expression was matured for 11 years in ex-Bourbon casks and three years in Burgundy wine casks before being bottled, and the nose is sweet and fruity with red apples, peaches and pears, red grapes, hints of orange peel and coconut with a kiss of mild smoke. The taste is tart and peppery with red grapes, figs, honey, and a nice boldness with good balance. There’s a touch of smoke that comes out as the spice fades, and the finish is long and intense with dried fruits, honey, and a hint of smokiness. Very interesting. (January, 2013)
