This'll actually be the first review of Longrow Red on Words of Whiskey, unless you count the few words I scribbled about this series here. Made at Springbank, Longrow is the distillery's heavily peated spirit. The Longrow Red whiskeys have all matured or been finished in wine casks. Today I'll tak ea look at the latest Longrow Red. At 10 years of age, it matured in re-fill Malbec casks for the final three years.

The Longrow Red series actually has a quirky origin story which some of you might be familiar with already. And since I've never actually properly written about Longrow Red, I figured it was fine to share that story here. Although I'm a bit fuzzy on the exact details, it has to do with a brand name dispute between Longrow (the whisky) and Long Row (a wine brand from Australia produced by Angove). I believe in the end it was settled rather amicably. Springbank received a number of wine casks from Angove. They then used these to create the first-ever Longrow Red in 2012.

While wine maturation is always a point of contention in the whiskey world (there's a lot of people who dislike it), Longrow Red seems to have been quite beloved from the get-go. You'll have to do your best to acquire the latest release, the Longrow Red 10 Years Refill Mallbec.
