Collectors note: This product is very old and the gift boxes are not in perfect condition. Springbank's labels almost always arrive with minor wearing and markings, most often to the top of the front labels. This is unavoidable. If you are likely to be disappointed by minor label scuffing, we recommend you don't buy these whiskies.

Longrow ten year old was officially launched in 1985, so this is delving deep into the archives. The label has been produced since the early 1970s with various age statements, strengths and maturations. The 1970s, late 1980s, 1990s and subsequent distillations are all quite different, which is why finding something like this is exciting for both drinkers and collectors. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Colour: white wine. Nose: oh, we do have these strange chemical notes that I find in many recent Longrows. Something like Alka-Seltzer, cheap cologne, sulphur, porridge with a spray of lemon juice... Add to that notes of new plastic… Now, it does get nicer after a moment, with nice whiffs of wet stones and cold ashes as well as flints, fresh butter… Funny how it improves in your glass, getting sharper and much more elegant after a good ten minutes. Quite some lime juice and hints of wet dog (say a collie ;-)) Mouth: not unbalanced at the attack, oily, cleaner than at first nosing, with some interesting notes of fresh herbs (chives, parsley, mint) as well as various sweets (lemon, orange, pineapple and lots of lavender and violets) and a little paraffin. Quite phenolic but not especially peaty in the Islayer sense. Finish: quite long, spicier now (curry and pepper) but also grassier and slightly bitter – nicely so. The whole is quite good, much better than the 1994 in any case. 84 points - whiskyfun.com
