Product Description

Matured for 11 years in Bourbon casks and the final year in fresh New Zealand Pinot Noir wine casks.

Just 9000 cask strength bottles will be available worldwide.

Natural colour and non chill- filtered

The third in an ongoing series of red wine cask finished releases from The Springbank distillery under the Longrow label (heavily peated style)

Our Tasting Notes:

Nose: Stewed red plums, rhubarb and custard along with the classic earthy-funky peat smoke you expect with Longrow. Some red liquorice, leafy/brambly/floral nuances, smoked ham with cranberry sauce and hints of old sweaty leather.

Palate: A peppery and crunchy red berry delivery with the earthy peat smoke high in the mix, some blood orange/pink grapefruit zing and an oily-wine tannin body/mouthfeel and an almost game meat or that pate you get at Christmas like richness.

Finish: Game pie with crunchy cranberry or redcurrant jelly, earthy/mulchy/brambly peat smoke with an aromatic edge, some white pepper, blood orange and leather notes linger on a long and full bodied finish.

Superb combination of New world Pinot Noir wine casks bringing gamey tinged red fruit and classic earthy/funky Longrow distillery character. I loved it but i know many may find this is a little bit too funky!
