Happy #ThirstyThursday! It has been some time since I've done a 'Whisky With a Brew' so I've decided to rectify the situation. Today, in the whisky corner, we have Longrow 13 Year Malbec Cask and in the beer corner, we have @riverhorsebrewing's My Name Is Citrus Maximus IPA. Longrow is a limited, sought after scotch that is released by the @springbankwhisky1828 distillery. This particular run is aged 12 years in ex bourbon barrels followed by over a year of aging in Malbec casks. The nose is super fruity (lots of berries and stone fruits) with restrained peat smoke. The palate is super sweet at first but morphs into the expected rich smokiness of a Campbeltown single malt. These notes are nicely complimented by the New Jersey based IPA which is brewed with Citra and Mosiac hops, white grapefruit and passion fruit. It's citrusy and tart but very refreshing at an ABV of 4.9%. Both of these are limited releases so get them while you can!
