    I don't know what's the typical sweet spot for a Longrow. It might depend on preference, the type of cask and the number of previous fills. Yet, this 17 yo refill hogshead matured version tends to be quite near my sweet spot. It's maybe not as earthy and sooty as younger versions, but it has the fruity side that gives so much more depth and pleasure. The palate is a tad dry, but this is all within boundaries. It shouldn't mature much longer though. 23 p.
    • Nose
      A typical mineral and earthy Longrow profile can be detected first: limestone, farmyard, soot, engine oil, putty, and peat smoke. It's by far not the only thing to be discovered. It has also a crisp, fresh and tropical fruity side with lemon, gooseberry and lychee. There is a slight green side of chlorophyl, and a hint of coconut. 23 p.
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, yet on the dry side (sense your tongue). The sooty and earthy side is most dominant too, but now with also licorice (the Italian sort, without added sugar). Lemon, tangerine and papaya make for a fruity twist. Then, menthol, coconut and crushed black pepper complement this pronounced palate.
    • Finish
      Long and salivating. In the beginning, the black pepper seems to be of the level of a good old Talisker. Then, licorice and soot join the finale, along with papaya and tangerine. Very good again. 22 p.
