The 2018 release of Longrow 18 year old is a limited release of just 4800 bottles and matured in 60% Ex-Sherry wood and 40% Ex-Bourbon wood.
Heavily peated 45-50ppm from The Springbank distillery.
Non Chill filtered and natural colour.
Nose: Spilt hot milk on singed barley and garden bonfire smoke (leafy and mulchy) sponge cake mix with dried fruit and mixed peel, cashew nuts, aromatic spice, some candyshop spice dolly mixtures?) and coffee fondant.
Palate: Smoky rice pudding, coffee fudge, singed barley, aromatic honey on brown toast, toasted hazelnuts, malty praline and peppery oak.
Finish: Milky oatmeal with toasted nuts, rice pudding skin, aromatic bonfire smoke, spicy coconut fudge and salted cashews.
Needs some patience to let this truly reveal itself, but once it does there is plenty to enjoy here beyond the peat smoke.
Always an under rated heavily peated malt and tends to get lost in the fog of the big Islay releases.
A campbeltown malt that can compete with the best of Islay.
