"Instantly right up in your face,with hot,peppered tangarine.After the initial hit,the peat surfaces and becomes more noticeable.As the dram calms a little in the glass,sweetness appears with gingerbread.Not a subtle whisky,but very enjoyable nonetheless."
Longrow is a peated whisky produced at the Springbank distillery.
This particular expression has been matured for 5.5 years in bourbon casks then 1.5 years finishing in Barolo wine casks(from the legendary Gaja winery) before finally being bottled at cask strength.
Springbank got into a bit of trouble for specifying which winery provided the Barolo casks and makes this even more collectable.
