Product Description

The 5th release of the Longrow Red series after previous releases finished in Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Port casks.

This time it is the turn of Malbec, a red wine made famous in Argentina and better known in France as le Cot or the black wine of Cahors.

Nose: Smoked pink grapefruit, crunchy red berries (cranberry & redcurrant) pink wafers , some earthy/strawberry plant notes, red liquorice, salted rose water.

Palate: Stewed plums, redcurrant jelly, crunchy tannins, black grape jelly, peppery strawberry, leathery, liquorice, salty smoked shortbread.

Finish: Dry and leathery, big red wine/black grape tannins, peppery red chilli flake heat but balanced by smoked red berries and some salty-meaty/savoury notes late on.

A superb heavily peated offering from the ever reliable Springbank distillery and not often you see Malbec casks being used for finishing whisky.
