    Ingenious dram! Creamy, typical longrow, bright fruits. Top

      Sweet and aromatic smoke, light grapes, lots of caramel and vanilla, including apricot and peach, creme brulee, liquorice, then it is suddenly sweet but at the same time musty

      Sweet and grape-sweet smoke, very creamy, pleasantly strong onset, the grapes are even more present, beautiful warmth, sweet oak

    Longrow 16 Single Cask
    Vintage/Bottled: 2001/2018
    Casktype: Fresh Bourbon, Chardonnay Barrique Barrels
    Strength: 54.3% Vol.

    Eyes: Golden Scent Nose: Peat, salty cheese, kerosene, cheese powder, coconut cream, lime, refined salt in the back. Turning the cup, there is some astringency of grapes and smoke with a slightly woody bitterness. But overall it is harmonious and rich.
    Taste Palate: The slick body is encouraged by alcohol, and the astringency of grapes destroys the round flavor. Unusually salty, resulting in a somewhat imbalanced flavor, significant irritation, vine wood, green apple gummies, grape juice, smoke, salty chunks of salt, butter cakes, and grease residue.
    Final rhyme Finish: long, salt, German smoked sausage, seaweed, wooden barrel, sea water

    Nose: 87/100
    Palate: 85/100
    Finish: 85/100
    Body: 87/100
    Overall: 86/100, there is a little excess of peat, too salty wine is not so pleasant to drink.

    Smell Nose: rich, dense, smooth, simple, sweet honey at the entrance, filled with a lot of slightly green apples and mangoes, a little lime, slight alcohol stimulation.

    Taste Palate: simpler, green mussels, arugula, grape seeds, fine sand, white pepper and cinnamon to provide spiciness.

    After rhyme Finish: short, arugula, grape seeds, white pepper, fine sand.

    Body: Medium-bodied wine with acceptable fat content, simple taste like deceptive, spicy.

    The book returns to the truth, the single barrel is too much to see, compared with the efforts made by wineries and winemakers, sometimes it is so helpless in the face of the carving of nature and time. A winery with an annual output of less than 2 million liters, who still sprinkle money all year round, and any country's dealers can like bills of lading. Reasonable consumers should see the experimental nature of this production (wine barrels take longer than Bourbon) Barrel) with the nature of lottery tickets. Its reasonable market positioning should be slightly inferior to the same aging time and reconciled in small batches of the original barrel strength (up to and including 3000 ~ 9000 bottles), which is higher than the winery's payment in the same year, rather than ignoring The specific situation, without judgment, is that a single barrel should be stronger than a blending work.
    • Nose
      A not-so-typical, dessert-like Longrow, a lot of condensed milk mixed with green apple and grape-flavored hi-fudge, is easily reminiscent of the greenery of the summer vineyards, and finally adorned with the iconic rice fragrance Farmhouse cooking smoke.

      The sense of this lively green fruit is somewhat similar to the works made by some wineries in the last century using 3rd or even 4th-fill sherry barrels. In comparison, Longrow is undoubtedly much more powerful.
    • Taste
      With a frown, I found that things were not that simple. If Wenxiang did his best from Longrow and Chardonnay, then the entrance would be the generation of innate weak seeds. The astringency of wine barrels and tannins are undoubtedly destroyed, which destroys the winery's gene of sweet and fat grains, and although it is reasonable to say that no special treatment is required to fill the Bourbon barrels in early 7th, this wine obviously has Something is not old and the barrel is too deep. The whole kernel is sprinkled with whole peppers. The rough peat and some paint entangle each other. The building will fall. The sweet coconut milk is also difficult to support.
      Strong but rude, fat is good, low sweet, less sour, extremely astringent, with a bitter bottom.
    • Finish
      Long, soot, coffee residues, vanilla.

  6. jjkmlss scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Tasted in line with 17yo chardonnay finish single cask.

    Nose: quite closed, green apple, white grapes, caesar salad, basically everything green.

    Palate: still we get subtle grapes, white pepper, sawdust, mineral notes and some lemony fruits & cat piss, sulphur.

    Body: Medium to light, too sulpury to create perfect balance.

    Finish: smoke, green salad, bonfire.

    • Nose
      Smoke, gouache, plastic, earth, peat, wet cardboard, fruit lollipops, oatmeal, chemicality, sweet pastries. 21
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, moderately dry, dense. Black pepper, ripe fruit, smoky and phenolic motifs, malt, cream caramel, candy floss, tablets, bitter oak. 23
    • Finish
      Long, smoothly fading, phenolic motifs, wood tannins dominate, menthol and a hint of wax are added at the very end. 23
      Interesting, powerful, delicious scotch tape, however, the chemicality in the aroma slightly spoils the picture. Balance 22

    I liked the sample very much, smooth, consistent, everything in its place, signs of mature whisky, balance of wine charm and bourbon classics, delicate smoke, the fortress is ideal for perception. Stronger than regular 18s. Without illusions: an excellent sample of wine support !!!

      Freshly hand-squeezed pomegranate juice with neatly interwoven mineral-medical shades. This is the height of grace! Sweet smoke, baked potato skin, quince jam, cherry juice, unpeeled green walnuts. In the end, all the shades of flavor, like a puzzle, are formed into a wine-tobacco profile with nuances of apricot and exotic fruits, which are an attribute of mature peat whisky. Unusual, beautiful, cool!
    • Taste

      Tobacco in the square, right there powerful sweet wood, Mikadamia and Brazil nuts, sweet yellow fruits that are wrapped in thick smoke. Simple and concise!
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is long, warm, fruit-smoky, the medicine returns again.

    Fantastic! Fruits, berries, vinous tones and sticky smoke evolves, intertangle and ends in a superb finish.
