Longrow 11 Year Old 'Red' Cabernet Fran Cask Single Malt Cask Strength Whisky 55.9% 700ml
is on back order
The latest annual release of the Springbank distillery's famous Longrow 'Red' is now available. Matured for 9 years in American oak casks before being racked into Cabernet Franc red wine barriques, this batch of the Red is quite peaty to start, giving way to a lush sweetness from the wood - toasted coconut, toffee, nutty marzipan and raspberry jam. The peated barley and cask flavours have great interplay on the palate with caramelised sugar, toffee and stewed rhubarb, mingled with smoke and juicy red apples. The finish drifts away from buttery biscuits to sooty smoke, edging towards phenolic medicinal (antiseptic) notes and dry tannins.
