Whisky Reviews for Longrow 11-year-old
2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.30 points
- elegant nose initially - red fruits like cherrys and red plums (and fruit stones giving a little dryness) with a nice nuttiness. sweet with a little peat and no warning of the beast that awaits :) the palate continues on the same notes but the longrow spirit asserts and the peat just gets bigger and bigger. Wood tannins and citrus provide a lovely lip-smacking moreishness. On the finish there are flickers of marzipan, some fresh red fruits and a sultana thrown in for good measure. But you're left with a long peaty tang that goes on.....I want more :)
The Longrow Red 11yo spent the first eight years in bourbon casks then three years in refill Pinot Noir Barriques from New Zealand. There are approximately 9000 bottles available worldwide.
Nose: Creamy, red apples. Homemade rhubarb crumble with lots of confectionary notes. Red liquorice and maraschino cherries.
Palate: Delicate, soft and smooth. A perfect balance of Pinot Noir wine & Longrow. Red fruits, raspberry jam and cranberry. This is followed by burnt embers and tobacco leaf with hints of smoke.
Finish: More of the Longrow characteristics; creamy, smoky, sultanas and some nuttiness.
