Longrow 18 Year Old

Postby jplu2 » Tue Apr 01, 2008 9:04 pm

Hi there

Just wondering if anyone knows when and where the new Longrow 18 Year Old will be available. I am in South Africa but my wife and some friends are coming out in the middle and the end of April.Was hoping they could pick up a bottle of this when they come out ... but i can't seem to find it on any of the regular websites.

Any help would be appreciated

Cheers
Jordan

P.S. Drinking a Longrow 10 year old 1994...quite superb really!

I guess it isn't going to be quite 16 yet if it's 1994.

If you live in Soth Africa and have a boat, you can get Longrow quite easily - you'll just have a long row.

Got a little confused there with your first post...thought I was going crazy....or had too much whisky! :insane:

But seriously I am sure that it is a 18 year old...have a look at these links

http://www.whiskyfun.com/archivemarch08-1.html#090308 (about half way down)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Longrow-18-y-o-3- ... dZViewItem

And it was also announced on the Springbank website...

Longrow cv is coming too. It has been review in WM, but is not yet available. I understand that Longrow is not selling as well as hoped.

Are we sure that it was ever in stock...maybe they haven't got their stock yet as no one else seems to have it on their websites yet! Here's hoping!

Les - The fella at Oddbins told me that it had gotten good reviews and that it was worth a try. They only had one bottle so left so I brought it :D

Now I think about it, it could have all been a sales pitch!
I'll let you know once I open it!

Not sure I like the packaging though:

Looks like they have been taking tips from Raymond.

Longrow CV £28.70 at Cadenheads Edinburgh, it will be a permanent extension to the range, well as permanent as Springbank gets . !8yo was released in a small batch and will not be repeated until 2008, apparently. I'll be using in a tasting on April 24th in Edinburgh, unless its rank. The tastings can be ordered by mail, if that makes sense.

listen to your uncle dog ... longrow 18 .. only 2200 bottles worldwide.

this is in the same league as lagavulin21, PE 6th edition or festival laphroaig.

The dogs nose has twitched ... trust the dog.
