Longrow 10

Longrow 10Longrow 10. A Campbeltown single malt from the Springbank distillery.  Mellow Peat and a hint of smoke with a teasing aroma of fruit, perhaps pear.  A smooth entry on the palate, medium dry finish, smoke and peat emerging.  A comfortable dram that sips like a mild Islay.

I did a bit of homework on the Springbank web site and they describe Longrow as an experiment in developing an Islay-like scotch.  The peat on this seems less sea salt influenced than those of the Islay offerings.
