Longrow 18 Year Old from Springbank - 2020 release
With hints of the classic Longrow peaty taste, this dram has a zesty nose and a wonderfully rich palate. Matured in 55% sherry, 25% bourbon and 20% rum casks and bottled in September 2020 at 46% ABV.
There are only 4300 bottles available worldwide of this Longrow 18YO.
Net weight: 1.6kg
Nose: Initially rum soaked strawberries with a delicate aroma of peat smoke. Vibrant scents of pineapple, mango and lemon sherbet follow
Palate: A lovely burst of sweetness and smoke like marshmallows toasting on
peat embers. Rich flavours of sea salt, dark chocolate, raisins, prunes and molasses.
Finish: A pronounced peated malt note, like being inside the kiln after it’s just
finished burning. Liquorice and the classic Springbank coastal influence.
