    "Longrow 'Manzanilla Wood' (46%, OB, for the shareholders, 60 bottles, Xmas 2005)
    This is a full-maturing, not a finish. Colour: gold. Nose: starts quite aromatic, on obvious notes of ‘jaune’ (or fino), fresh walnuts, toasted bread, caramel and bitter oranges. Gets quite meaty (mostly on ham), peaty, almondy… The blend of a peaty malt with the manzanilla produces also something quite resinous (pine needles, mastic) but also something slightly ‘chemical’ (marshmallows, bubblegum). Good and interesting.
    Mouth: sweet, toasty, winey and salty, with an unusual character (lots of manzanilla). Quite some butter caramel and liquorice, dried bananas and coconuts, salmiak, kippers… Very, very interesting, with a also a little apple vinegar and soy sauce… And the finish is rather long, compact, very salty and liquoricy. Lucky shareholders!89 points."
