Longrow Red 11 year old Port Cask, 51.8%

Price: $82 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The latest incarnation of Springbank's Longrow Red matured for 11 years in port casks before being bottled at cask strength. The nose is sweet, with cherries, caramel, new leather, chewing tobacco, and soft peat. Voluptuous in the mouth, with a palate of rich peat, summer berries, and toffee apples, with growing spice notes, and light oak. Lengthy in the finish, with cinnamon, peat, sweet oak, and red berries.
