Longrow Barolo Wood Expression
REGION – Campbeltown
NOSE – Initially, the nose is very fruity. Think ripe summer fruits, followed by an abundance of oak – before the familiar gentle smokiness of Longrow begins to make an appearance.
PALATE – Fruit notes and dried grapes mingle with oak tannins but still allow the smokiness of the young Longrow to shine through.
If there was ever an argument for the use of wine casks in the maturation of whisky, this is it!
The combination of smoky whisky from one of Scotland’s most renowned distilling families, and wine casks from one of Italy’s most renowned wine makers has resulted in a whisky with maturity far beyond its 7 years.
Bottled at cask strength of 55.8% this Longrow has been matured in refill bourbon casks for 5 and a half years followed by a year and a half in Barolo wine casks.
