Longrow 12yo Red 2015 (70cl, 52.9%)

SW_CA_LONG_002

A 12 year old Longrow single malt Scotch whisky from the fantastic Springbank distillery in the Campbeltown region. This one has been allowed to finish for a year in French Pinot Noir wine casks before being bottled at 52.9% ABV, resulting in intense fruit notes from all angles.

Loads of red berry notes here, with a touch of orange and familiar Longrow smokiness too.

Springbank is one of the few remaining family owned distilleries. Nearly all of its whisky is sold as a single malt, with little of it finding its way into blends. Most blends are produced by larger conglomerates who tend to use the single malts from the distilleries that they own in their blends. Springbank is one of few distilleries in Scotland to perform every step in the whisky making process, from malting the barley to bottling the spirit.
