Longrow 10yo (46%, OB, +/-2009) – Scotch Whisky Tasting Note

Longrow 10yo (46%, OB, +/-2009)

Springbank Distillery produces three styles of malt whisky; Springbank, mildly peated and 2.5 times distilled; Hazelburn, unpeated and 3 times distilled and Longrow, 2 times distilled and heavily peated. All variations are unadulterated by colouring or chill filtration. The nose reveals toffeed peat smoke, malt, some fragrant heathery notes and light bees wax (warm), a distant lumber yard along with some warm bread. The peat smoke is not over powering and the over all is impression is pleasant and inviting. The taste is strong, malty, leathery (lightly), peated and fragrant and is much like the nose. There is also some really nice dark chocolate and a lovely toffeed sweetness and more malt. It’s very nice. The finish is malty, oaky (oak spice), with some fruit (not too big) and peaty but once again it’s not out of balance with the other descriptors and does not dominate. The finish is very long and warming. Malt trumps at the very end.

Another good dram from Springbank
