Longrow malt whisky is produced at the Springbank distillery Campbeltown. There was once a Longrow distillery which was a neighbouring distillery to Springbank but this closed in 1896. The last remaining warehouse of the old Longrow distillery actually now shelters Springbanks bottling plant.

Although Longrow is produced in the same distillery as Springbank it is a very different malt due to its different production methods. Unlike Springbank, Longrow malt is 100% dried above a peat fire, giving it a stronger taste. Also Longrow has a classic double distillation unlike Springbank which has a 2.5 times distillation. Longrow is exclusively matured in refill casks. At present, Longrow is mainly available as a 10 year old malt, but a 15 years old will be widely available soon. There are also a number of vintage special finish bottlings available, both original and independent bottlings.
 

Longrow Tasting Notes


Longrow 13 Year Old Sherry Wood.
Colour: Amber-Golden.
Nose: Lush sweetness with milk chocolate & autumn fruits. Strong hints of burning embers.
Taste: Very rich & oily in body with toffee apples and cloves dominating at first. Not 'In Your Face' Peatiness but rather subtle smoky undertones well integrated into the character of the malt.
Finish: Long and warming. The perfect seasonal dram.
