Longrow 14 Years Old Cask Strength is a heavily peated single malt from the Springbank distillery. It aged for 14 years in a refill bourbon cask, and was bottled in 2011 at a cask strength of 56.2% for The Nectar. The nose is fruity with hints of iodine, chalk and peat. The palate is powerful and complex with sweet and fresh notes of vanilla, icing sugar, citrus and liquorice, joined by white pepper, cold smoke and sea salt. The finish is long and drying with a subtle bitterness. Springbank first distilled its heavily peated malt, Longrow, in 1973. It is named after a lost Campbeltown distillery which once operated right next door to Springbank. When Longrow closed in 1896, Springbank took over the distillery’s warehouse to use it as a bottling plant.
