The 2022-release of Longrow Red is a 15-year-old single malt that was initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels for 11 years, before spending four years in fresh Pinot Noir barriques from well-known winemaker Grant Taylor's Valli vineyards in Central Otago, New Zealand. Aromas of custard, bramble jam, red apples, cherries, toffee, butterscotch and smoky embers fill the nose, complemented by notes of cranberry, raspberry, rich malt, waves of smoke and hints of sea salt throughout the palate.

Now home to only 3 distilleries, Campbeltown was once known as the "whisky capital of the world" with as many as thirty active distilleries. Of the three remaining today, Springbank reigns supreme with their lightly-peated malt. In 1973 Springbank's chairman challenged the status-quo and tasked his team with crafting an Islay-style malt (heavily-peated) at their facility. The experimental whisky, codenamed Longrow, was a great success and has built a cult following, and in 1992 it was made part of the permanent lineup. Production remains limited to just a few thousand cases each year, with a minute amount making it stateside.
