Longrow is the heavily peated malt made at Springbank in Campbeltown. The 18 Year Old is a sought-after favourite – rich, smoky and sweet with notes of smoke, dark chocolate and ginger.Tasting Notes (1)

Producer's Tasting Notes
A complex nose: Sweet fruits, citrus, peaches and orange zest at first before a gentle earthy peaty aroma reveals itself.
Rich and very, very tasty. Well balanced. Dark chocolate, creamy coffee and gingerbread to the fore, followed by rhubarb and vanilla custard.
Long and sweet, a hint of typical Longrow peat smoke combined with more chocolate and some dried fruits.

Well the 2008 (2200 Bottles) and 2011 (2280 Bottles) releases are almost the same colour very light in colour (refill casks probably) The 2012 (3700 Bottles) and 2013 (4500 Bottles) releases are alot darker since the use of more First Fill Sherry casks. Atleast the 2012 since I havent got a 2013 yet will soon though at the Distillery...
@TWE Admin- Thanks for that info about the color and casks.
@anonymous: Springbank don't add colour to their whiskies and as such the hue depends on the casks the whisky was matured in - it looks like the 2011 release had some more active sherry casks in the mix.
@Whiskyfun- just bought a bottle of this great whisky from you. Compared to my other bottle of Longrow 18 years from the 2011 release this is much much darker in the color. Do you know the reason for this? To my knowledge there is no difference in the maturation between the two.
This stuff cost me an arm and a leg in the U.S. but it's quite rare and unique. Think more coastal Highlands than Islay in style as the peat is very delicate and locally sourced. Just as good as the first 2008 bottling. Everyone in the UK is getting this at a great price. I paid $200 USD!
