Longrow Red 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky | Refill Malbec Matured.
Longrow is the heavily peated sister whisky to Springbank and Hazelburn. The "Red" range is a series of annual releases which have been finished in different varieties of casks that had previously contained a reddish fluid whether it be a wine or fortified wine generally.
The Malbec barriques for this expression have been sourced from De Toren Private Cellar in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Casks: 7 years Bourbon and 3 years Refill Malbec.
Nose: Aromas of chewy vanilla fudge and butterscotch with a hint of tart and sticky stewed rhubarb and grape juice
Palate: Delicate peat smoke is balanced with notes of juicy red apples and ripe black cherries. Freshly baked pretzels, vanilla and sugar coated almonds offer buttery, sweet characteristics whilst there is a developing earthy hint of tobacco leaves towards the end.
Finish: The ashy, earthy, buttery characteristics continue with notes of burnt embers and warm buttered toast.
Only 10,000 bottles of this whisky worldwide.
