    The Malbec casks have certainly left their mark on this whisky, bringing dark red fruits and oak tannins while still retaining some classic Campbeltown character. Springbank definitely made the right choice batting together refill casks as first-fill casks for such a long finish may well have overpowered the base spirit. Value (£57) : 8/10
    • Nose
      The nose is the star of the show for me. I get almost like a cherry liquorice initially. Developing into rhubarb jam and yellow plums. Butterscotch and molasses. Vanilla spongecake with a syrupy strawberry reduction. Classic heavy Springbank spirit with a dry, earthy peat smoke in the background. Wet rocks and sand by the beach. White pepper spice with cardamom and ginger. Now cherry linctus. This is one where I can easily nose for an hour as it's that complex and balanced.
    • Taste
      Oily in texture. The initial palate is jammy red fruits and sweet fudge. Fresh red apples. More vanilla biscuits and cherries. Grapefruit peel. Ginger spice hits. A touch of bitter dark chocolate that develops into more oak tannin led flavours. Overbrewed tea and tobacco leaves. A slight note of salty iodine. Some cocoa nibs and coffee beans. Quite drying.
    • Finish
      Medium in length. Continuing on from the development it retains that tannin-heavy influence from the Malbec casks. More coffee and tobacco with some fresh leather now as well. Once that drying sensation subsides, the maritime salty sea air becomes much more prominent with a lingering ashy smoke.

    the first nose disappointed, but after standing the aroma evened out, tasty berry and wine, a good story to drink!

    Today I'm trying this Longrow which was part of a virtual tasting session with Springbank. This sample was at 56.7%ABV. Let's see how it tastes.

    Nose begins with stewed red fruits, oak tannins, wet cardboard, light smoke, vegetal notes, perhaps some cinnamon in background.

    Palate gives red fruits, smoke, salt, sugar cinnamon.

    Finish has more red fruits, cinnamon, baking spices, and some salt to dry the moderate finish.
