Longrow Peated Review

Longrow Peated Review

Distilled & Bottled by Springbank

Region: Campbeltown

Type: Single Malt

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: NAS

Color: Pale Gold

Longrow is Springbank’s heavily peated offering. The barley spends roughly 48 hours drying under a peat fire resulting in about 50ppm (phenol parts per million). Longrow Peated is double distilled and bottled without an age statement, caramel coloring or chill filtration.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Barley toast and some yeast/lactic character is detected first. Then comes vanilla bean, pickled ginger, and dried lemon rind.
Palate: Medium weight mouthfeel with sweet lemon candy, syrup and ripe fruit with just a hint of brine.

Finish: Medium-to-long with a decent layer of smoke. I find more vanilla, earthy notes of a fresh tilled field and more ripe fruit. I also find the strange yeast note from the nose.

Rating: 6/10

Conclusion: This whisky is quite a tasty with some fairly standard bourbon barrel and peat flavors. But that doesn’t mean there’s not some interesting things thrown in. For all the time Springbank lets the barley dry under a peat fire, the smoke is not as prominent as I expected but the result is a tasty whisky worth drinking.
