- Longrow 10. Consumed March 2019 in Glasgow (at the Ben Nevis pub if memory serves). Aroma is a little peachy, some lemongrass Taste again has lemongrass, soft coal embers, very fruity, peat - burnt citrus peels ... interestingly fruity lemon. Interesting stuff - subtle integrated peat, lemon and salt, fruity distillate showing only soft bourbon cask influence but nice subtle wood. A pretty citrussy dram. 3.4/81
Mineral salt, sooty, after rain sunny beach, camphor, eucalyptus, plaster, some pepper, tiny bits of sulfur, that springbank/longrow peat excellent!
Similar with the nose, that good ol' dirty springbank/longrow
peat, lemony, mineral rock.
Medium long, sooty with some lemon juice.
- Longrow 10,
Do you look like a peated whisky? I fully agree for whisky ...
However, you have a lot more charm than this bland orange cardboard box would suggest.
You are a spring whisky in my eyes, I find you refreshing. You are the sacrosanct representation of scotch tape which does not fart. And yet, you could humiliate many vikings and their frenzies of gondola heads.
- Good balance and consistency. The set of ingredients is not rich, but they are adjusted to each other. Saturated, even harsh whisky.
Sun dried lemons and oranges, ash, smoke, charcoal, grapes, cranberries in powdered sugar, dust, leather furniture, pumpkin candy, barbecue, farm, vegetables, drying apricots, apples, and iodine and salt over time.
Lemon, coal, ash, chocolate, pumpkin, meat notes, buttery and sweet.
Lemon, charcoal, skin, peach, dry palpable, ash, tar, knit, and there is a tangible sweetness.
- Rich, exotic fruits, vanilla, cinnamon
Oily, sweetish, at first a little pepper, then a little iodine and sea salt,
Medium finish, spice, pear
Very smooth, good ten
- A charming nose, fresh and fruity with a peat typical of this house, a beautiful painting but ..... The painting is not dry ... And under this nose embellished, the mouth is really not. What a pity. Where will not you tell me. If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 82.
Straw yellow color, few tears, thin and fast. Blind to the nose, I would have confused with the Springbank 12 years CS 2017. It is clear that the Springbank identity is there. Peat burnt, earthy and iodized, fruity, vanilla and spicy. White flowers, violet, pear and white pepper, lactic like some Beaune wine. Melon, Khaki and lime. A fresh and tangy nose.
Opens on rubber, earth and burnt wood. Hot wax. It's creamy, vanilla pear, and maritime at the same time: licorice, mineral, wet and iodized rock. Little grilled feeling.
The finish is short on the sea, salty and iodized squall. The empty glass is burnt camphorated and grilled.
I like it quite well (85/100), but not quite my prey scheme. I'm guessing on a bourbon-barreled malt at about 46%. Spey or Low. Maybe a Glen Elgin?
Very lemony freshness with subtle smoke and hints of passion fruit and some green apples and pears. No alcohol noticeable. Later some hay and grass. Was there smoke before? Now there is no one left.
On the palate more hay and grass as well as shaky notes (shortbread) and a very subtle citrus note. Very round. Almost no alcohol noticeable. In the second sip a nice matching bitterness and a mixture of alcoholic u. peppery pungency. No smoke.
Finisch long and soft.
