A new Limited Edition from the Springbank distillery Longrow Red has been matured for Seven years in refill bourbon, and then four years in
Cabernet Sauvignon hogsheads from Angoves Long Row, Australia.
Nose: A real treat. Sweet in the beginning; raspberry jam and hints of rose petal. As the nose develops it reveals a light peatiness, with cherries, red grapefruit and blood oranges.
Palate: Oh theres the peat! Initially oaky and leathery with a little bit of tobacco and salt, the Cabernet Sauvignon influence appears later with some blackberries and cinnamon. A very chewy dram.
Finish: Long and peaty. Definitely coastal in style, there is a touch of mellow fruitiness here too.
