Springbank Longrow 11 Years Old Red Tawny Port

Springbank distillery is located in Campbeltown, a picturesque Scottish town situated at the southern end of the Kintyre Peninsula on the glorious west coast.
The first reference to Campbeltown whisky is recorded in writing in 1591. Springbank was established in 1828 on the site of Archibald Mitchell’s illicit still, becoming the 14th licensed distillery in Campbeltown. Today, Springbank is one of only three distilleries operating in the Campbeltown area and is the oldest independent family-owned distillery in Scotland.

Named after another lost distillery of Campbeltown (which once operated right next door to Springbank and whose warehouse now houses our bottling hall), Longrow was first produced in 1973 to provide a peaty, oily and robust component to a blend being created at the time. More heavily peated and double distilled, it has been a staple in the production calendar since the 1990s.

The limited Longrow Red series combines Springbank’s peated single malt with maturation in a different type of red wine cask each year. The 2022 release first spent seven years in bourbon casks, followed by four years in fresh Tawny Port barrels.

    Nose:    Restrained smoke, red grapes, some sweetness with vanilla, spicy oak. Diluted port wine.

    Taste:    Sweet, hardly any smoke, some ginger spiciness, red grapes and also spicy oak on the palate. Port wine can be clearly tasted. Earthy and wood.

    Finish:    Long aftertaste. Creamy sweet with a spicy finish. Lots of dryness on the cheeks that stays until the very end.

Please note: Springbank labels are extremely prone to scuffing. We cannot guarantee these items are like new.
