Longrow

Distillery Bottlings

Posted 23 January 2018

Since 1973, Springbank have been producing Longrow, their heavily peated expression that harks back to the early 19th Century when Campbeltown malts where naturally very smoky – and a key component in the blends of the day. Peated to around 50-55PPM, Longrow takes around 10% of Springbank’s annual production time (unpeated, triple distilled Hazelburn another 10% since 1997). Longrow CV was first released in 2008, and in 2010 won both the best ‘Campbeltown NAS whisky’ at the World Whisky Awards as well as ‘Best Peated Malt’ (Daily Drams) at the Malt Maniacs awards. It’s a well-loved favourite in many circles.

There’s a good reason why expressions produced by Springbank are so well-regarded and sought after. To my mind, the distillery is one of Scotland’s most consistent – rarely have I tasted anything less than ‘solid’ from the cult Campbeltown producer. The quality is high, and the messaging is extraordinary simple (that’s personally exactly what I’m after) – there’s no ridiculously contrived back-story, no finding of ‘special’ casks seemingly lost in the back of a warehouse  <yawn> – just good honest whisky with a strong and definable character. Gone are the days when Springbank was an enthusiasts Mecca – the word has been well and truly out for years, and it seems that nowadays I struggle to obtain anything even smelling like a limited release for the sea of new entrants.

Springbank’s peatier expression Longrow has been releasing its ‘Red’ series since 2012. These focus on wine maturation/finishing, specifically, and in no surprise to anyone, red wines. To date, we’ve had smoky Longrow whiskies matured and/or finished in casks which have held Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Port, Pinot Noir, and most recently Malbec.

Longrow is Springbank’s double distilled and heavily peated line of whiskies. Its name derives from the long lost distillery which operated in Campbeltown from 1824 through to it's closure in1896. Springbank first produced Longrow as an experimental ex-bourbon/ex-sherry cask marriage with a phenolic level of around 50PPM. It gained a small army of fans and has subsequently become established as one of the distilleries three main brands.
