Whisky Reviews for Longrow 2005
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.03 points
C: The maturity and composition is good with some dirty complexities thrown in for good measure. For £60, this is a bottle I’m happy to take a punt on. This I tried later on along with the Hazelburn, and found it just as appealing [notes to follow].

- Mark found some words and notes for the 2018 festival bottles on MALT review: https://malt-review.com/2018/05/25/campbeltown-malts-festival-releases-2018/
- Smoke + Port has never disappointed me ..
A nice combination of the red fruits from the port barrel and neat longwax, a bit of sulfur, caramel, overall rather fresh than sweet and heavy.
intense, creamy, almost sparkling, with cheese notes, lots of red ripe fruit and a lot of smoke, which, however, only plays a minor role in the remaining intensity of the aromas, some oak, which brings dry notes
the finish is dominated by fruity notes, warming, some smoke, a classic smoke + port finish
- Only the sulfur reduces my opinion a bit, if only slightly. Apart from that, it's great.
Typically elegant longrow smoke, chocolate, slightly mineral, subliminally sulphurous, orange peel, nice and dirty
Here, the sulfur dominates first then peppery smoke, the orange peel fights and comes only slightly over, a lot of heat in the mouth, sea salt chocolate
Ostensibly sulfur but that is very sweet and quite yummy, with smoky oak, which sticks very sweet on the palate
