    Cadenhead has four "Living Casks" in their shop in Campbeltown: Springbank, Langrow, Hazelburn and Kilkerran. As stated by the staff, all casks are Bourbon Hogsheads and they are refilled once in a while with very different variations from the distilleries. The age from the Whisky added differs very much between 7 and more than 20 years (at least that is what they told me) and they are always at cask strength. I bought an Kilkerran and a Longrow from these casks. 

    The Longrow needs a few seconds to come up. The first nose is very flat, but then it evolves very wonderful with rich dry fruits, salt and peat. Its the typical Springbank / Longrow peat smell, that one can tell pretty easy and its very intense. The character is oily and smooth as silk when trying a neat sip. I think there some really wonderful old Longrows hidden in this cask. Taking some more, it gets fully open and a lot different characters appear very complex with a long peaty / smoky finish. 

    I like this one even better than the newer Longrow original bottlings, but its not so good as the older ones ;-) VERY good price / value ratio!

    Unfortunately the Longrow from the Tastig room does not pick me up, so I expected more.
    • Nose
      rather restrained with mild, yellow fruits, no smoke, a bit sprightly and somehow soapy, apple, it gets directly added water, thus sweet, minimal smoke in the background, after the first Schuck I still smell wholewheat-butter biscuits
    • Taste
      dry earthy and now also with more smoke, shortcrust pastry, nettle tea, slightly diluted very pleasant to drink
    • Finish
      rather short and one-dimensional, the smoke sounds again, slightly herbaceous and herbal
