    I’d tried this refill port cask-matured Longrow a few days earlier in the courtyard [Blog87], and deemed it well worthy of sixty of my hard-earned pianist’s pounds.

    N: Lovely toasted oak sugars.
    T: With coastal hints, a little water brings out the subtle & rubbery mechanics oils.
    F: Light, dirty peat with a banana-y finish.
    C: Scores the same as before as it turns out.

    Scores a B

    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].

    Scores a B

  7. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Smoke + Port has never disappointed me ..
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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
    • Finish
      the finish is dominated by fruity notes, warming, some smoke, a classic smoke + port finish

  8. schero scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Only the sulfur reduces my opinion a bit, if only slightly. Apart from that, it's great.
    • Nose
      Typically elegant longrow smoke, chocolate, slightly mineral, subliminally sulphurous, orange peel, nice and dirty
    • Taste
      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
    • Finish
      Ostensibly sulfur but that is very sweet and quite yummy, with smoky oak, which sticks very sweet on the palate
