Longrow Peated

Fans of heavily peated single malts are always happy when Longrow is in town! Matured in a combo of bourbon and sherry casks, this double distilled expression is a classic offering from Campeltown's Springbank distillery.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Salt and a leathery smokiness come to the fore in a maritime combination, like a Harbourmaster's Jacket.

Palate Light and sweet with notes of green grapes and rhubarb, a great contrast to the nose. Then comes a big blast of smoke.

Finish That salty smokiness returns from the nose providing a deeply satisfying ending.

Overall A great entry-level offering from Longrow perfect for Islay fans looking for something a bit different.

Reviews for Longrow Peated
Surprising nice!
Tried a dram. Never really had peated whiskey before. A unique taste and the smokiness surprisingly doesn't over power.
Very tempted to buy, if back in stock and the price doesn't rise.

Exceptional
One of the best whiskies I have ever tasted. The peat is perfectly balanced at all stages. On the palate you can control the sensations by swirling it around in different ways. The finish is astonishing. It leaves a sticky dry feeling under your tongue just like a top quality air cured ham. Unlike some of its Islay competitors, it does not leave you with smoke for hours to come.

If you like medicinal, this one’s for you
Very young. Phenol lovers may like it but very medicinal for more palate. Not sure I would describe it as sweet, more like bitter almost tangy. Would I buy I again? Ehh, probably not, not it’s not terrible either.

Woop Woop!
I got onnnnnnnnnne :)

I like it's change of pace, smoked hammmmm.

Stick with it & give it time in the glass & coax it out.

If you like Lediag you'll like this, it's a little more subtle & saline though.

If ur looking for lemon peel with your peat look elsewhere, this 1's soft.

Decent young whisky
For the price I think there are much better peated whiskies available thus I can only give 3 starts. This is an unmistakably young whisky, I think its a little flat on the palate, not very oily and very bright. Bright, fresh smoke, a little sour and and medicinal. I find Cambeltown (Springbank) has a lot of hype around them, but that doesn't necessarily speak for the quality. Its a decent whisky, but wouldnt pay more than £32 for it.

Complex and Rewarding
Intense, sweet, and savoury before the long smokey finish hits. This is an excellent offering of something between Campbelltown style (Springbank 10 year) and Islay.
Thoroughly enjoyed this and highlight recommended if you can get a bottle.

Lovely stuff
Deep amber in appearance, the nose on this is complex and challenging. The bonfire peat smoke hits first, although it's not as intense as many Islay malts, then the signature Campbeltown brine and salt appears in force. There's a sharp fruit note as well, grapefruit and citrus.
On the first sip this is a taste explosion. First there's an apple hit, more a dry cider type taste than sweet, then a lemon citrus. After this your mouth tingles and salivates as the peaty, meaty and savoury notes come in. It's chewy in the mouth, rich and thick. Think apple sauce and a rich BBQ salty pulled pork, burnt ends and brisket. At the same time, sweet, sour, salty and bitter.
The finish is medium, you're left with that salty, umami sensation which is very pleasant on the palette.
Adding a teaspoon of water brings out some more sweet elements on the nose - honey and barley sugar. In the mouth also it amps up the fruit and tones back the peaty/salty elements.
All in all, another winner from Springbank!

If you love whisky, I wholeheartedly recommend you try this
Savoury, sour brine, liquorice on the nose.
Taste is tar, phenols, seaweed followed by dry woody finish.

It's not super peaty, or downright weird, like some of the Islays - it's complex, savoury, balanced and distinctively different.

It's my go too standard barer against which everything else gets measured against.

Lovely smoky seaside
Given this as Xmas pressie, love it, love it! My go to dram has been Talisker for the past 30 years, might give this another try, now and again.
I like the smokiness, floral spice and hint of seaside.

Left field whiskey. Hallelujah! Loved this.
Nose: Sweet beautiful peat. Somewhat nutty.

Palate: So many layers. Its creamy and that leads to fresh wood into gentle sweet peat before the pepper on the oak closes out. Wow. Wow. Wow.

After: You so want this to continue to evolve but it doesn't. There is enough but in truth it's the palate that's holding the end up.
