Longrow is the heavily peated expression of Springbank, and it’s a vatting of four different cask styles ranging in age from 6 to 14 years. The nose is smoky as expected, with an unusual lightness and slightly heathery and floral. The taste is peaty and peppery, hot and spicy with notes of cinnamon and burnt leaves. The finish is smoky and warming. This one was inspired by John McDougall’s tenure as distillery manager.
