Whisky Reviews for Longrow 10-year-old
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.88 points
- Young and quite crisp in the nose and on the tongue, but nonetheless a beautiful and typical longrow.
First of all, freshly glazed wood and wild berry compote - and then there is an association that I have never had with any whisky: a puma cage that urgently needs a thorough cleaning. In the end it was maybe just damp straw after all, but get the impression of just once out of your head ...
Has a certain sharpness in the nose, but you can get it under control with a little standing time. Sour yeast dough, matcha, a freshly mown meadow. Heather. Nougat chocolate.
Starts warm and dry. Blackberries and blueberries, slightly spicy. Here, too, there is a certain sourness on the tongue, as well as the freshly mown meadow, like in the nose. As a longrow it should be smoky, but this is another case where you can easily mistake dry wood for smoke. Delivers a few nice notes of warm chocolate pudding and cold coffee grounds later.
Dry wood (or smoke) in the medium-long finish, with not too sweet forest berries, a little pepper and paprika spice.
- A tasty, young and still wild longrow, it takes a little until it shows its full aroma profile, but then it delivers well
rather the fruity woody variant with a good trace of spice, some cinnamon, slightly peppery, sour fruit, raisins, some oak, musty, pine smoke, campfire, then also greasy, above all there is a sour note of cereals with yoghurt, after the first Sip a little nut, also a little tobacco, slightly chocolatey
extremely oily, caramel, intense, raisins, smoke, dirty, not even a sherry bomb, could taste like Port Charlotte, on the second sip I catch more, cinnamon, chocolate, yes now clear sherry in the mouth, something Liquorice, it tingles at the tip of the tongue, the liquorice note is now quite clear
here the smoke comes through more and more, ashy, still light, this spicy of firewood smoke, creamy, here too a aftertaste of licorice
