    Very fruity and balanced - one of the best Longrow I had so far - flabbergasting!

      A lot of peat, little smoky, seabreeze, iodine, seaweed, smoked fish, hints of honey, some fruitiness, peach, banana, pineapple, whiffs of vanilla - excellent!

      Very fruity, oily, sirupy, good peatiness, little smokiness, subtle sweetness, more peach, apple, pear, banana, spices, more smoked fish, some vanilla, little oak wood, little saltiness, hints of peanut butter - superb!

    Tasted at old and rare 2020. Farmy peat, varnish, some citrus fruits and herbs, amazing balance, brilliant.

  4. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Great stuff but probably not better than the 16yo versions, especially the more sherried version. Plus, the 16yo's are probably less expensive.

    • Nose
      Strong tropical fruits, lime and passion fruits, a fresh and light side. A touch of farmy notes, almost no peat but smoke.
    • Taste
      Rich and tropical, light body and floral, mellow and elegant, a bit drying wood tannins.
    • Finish
      Fresh tropical fruits, melons, papaya, banana skin, long.
