Longrow 2000 Gaja Barolo 7 Year Old
First distilled in 1973, Longrow is the peated single malt produced at Springbank distillery. Although very popular, Longrow remains an elusive whisky, with only 100-150 casks of it filled at the distillery each year. Early champions of this spirit included the legendary Italian bottler, Silvano Samaroli, who bought and bottled a number of famous casks from the inaugural vintage, and is credited by many with a good deal of the brand's success. It remains revered by connoisseurs to this day.
This is part of the Wood Expressions series, and is matured for 5 1/2 years in bourbon casks prior to being finished for 1 1/2 years in Barolo casks from the winery, Angelo Gaja.
A total of 12,120 bottles were produced, distilled in 2000 and bottled in 2008.
