An old Campbeltown distillery, Longrow was first distilled and re-launched at Springbank distillery in 1973. Each year the distilling equipment at Springbank is cleaned and Longrow is made for a short time, double distilled in the traditional Scottish manner from malt dried entirely over a peat fire. For lovers of the Islay styles, Longrow is amongst the peatiest whiskies available, having one of the highest phenol contents (although bottlings have been reported to vary dramatically in this respect). Its limited availability has inspired an obsessive cult following, also making it highly collectable, though consistently pricey. The Longrow malts are typically matured in both sherry and bourbon casks.

Other reviews... ...strap on the head aroma with so many barley-peat nuances at so many levels it almost defies comprehension and it wouldn't be Longrow if there weren't some salty goings on too... Rating: 89 points. 46% Alc./Vol.

...The stocks of the “new era” Longrow keep getting older (and better). A pleasingly sweet foundation of burnt caramel, vanilla fudge, and toffeed nuts is challenged by earthy peat, tar, damp barnyard, and brine. Earthy, smoky finish. A nice whisky with great potential, but still needs a few more years. 46% Alc./Vol. 85 points -www.maltadvocate.com, (Vol. 17, #3) Reviewed by: John Hansell

...The wonderful bouquet features scents of fried egg and salty fragrances of coal, bean paste, pork roast, pork sausage and marjoram. The entry taste is malty, grainy, off-dry, peanuty and oily; at midpalate the flavor includes tastes of seaweed, light peat, smoke, sweet malt, and pine. Finishes elegantly, light in texture, and lusciously oily. (8/1/2008) 90-95 points - www.wineenthusiast.com

...you can count on complexity when it comes to the Longrow 14 nose. The smoke is delicate, always happy to give way to any fruity or oaky notes passing. A bit of a stunner...a Sherry butt proves the Achilles heel, but until then, a charmer. 89 points - Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2013
