  1. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    At the first drams that I had in the glass, I had not found the Longrow character at all. Now, five or six drams later (not in one day ;-)), the distilling character is clearly visible. Oxygen does it very well, it gets better every time.

      Dark red fruit it strikes against: Overripe red grapes, black blackberries, ripe raspberries. A slightly fermenting note. Some match wood abrasion. Baconous smoke, which initially hid, pushes forward. Old wooden shelves in a damp cellar. Modrig, but still berry fruit. Sandalwood, nutmeg, pepper, thyme. Loamy soil, moist leaves. After a while, turn to the dark side.

      The sherry barrel is clearly noticeable with ripe red grapes, blackberries and black currants. Also on the tongue shows the match again. The greasy smoke note at the beginning - and once on the tongue, the smoke is also much more present in the nose, as if you would only verriechen. Light herbal note that captures the sweetness of the berries well. Dry with time. Coffee beans, milk chocolate, vanilla ice cream with hot cherries. Spicy. After a while peppermint.

      Medium long, dry. The fruits sparkle again and again, but do not crowd too much. Something musty, still smoky.

  3. Palindrome scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Initially, the scent of this whisky gives up the ghosts of orchard and berry fruits, such as boysenberry, blingon, and pear (although it is not the "new make" kind of pear that one would expect from a younger whisky). Peat seems to wrap a woolen blanket around the fruits, along with a bit of wax.

    In the mouth, one can notice fruits right off, along with an oily note of steak fat dripping on a lit briquette barbecue. Now, I'm reminded of the Swiss alcohol drinks that I used to have at the Apothecary, a bar that has since gone belly up in my home town. Those rare medieval/monkish herbs come through in this Longrow as a tasting note. How curious.

    But I digress . . . for there is also a creamy cacao side to this dram, which seems a bit surprising. The finish is medium in length with just the berries (and no pear) lingering, along with smoke and toasted herbs.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Sweet, somewhat farmy and smokey. Orchard fruits and darker forest fruits. Pear, peach, blackberry, blueberrie, slight sour cherry. Quite meaty with some silage (fermenting grasses), a wet autumn day in the forest, just a mild note of dusty wood spice with some nutmeg, and pepper.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet and syrupy, peach, dark red fruits, blackberry, sour cherries, plum, also quite some peppery spiciness with just a mild note of cow stables. Again silage, some burnt grasses and eventually also espresso and some ashes.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long: fruity but also quite savory and ending with a clear dry note of peppery wood spice.

  6. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Delicious, woody, sweet longrow. The recharring would have overlaid one or the other malt. Fortunately, the springbank character is invincible.

    As of 2020 this is the nicest whisky I ever had. It has the tropical fruit hit in the middle of the palate that is typical for Longrow but it delivers it so cleanly and intensely it is really amazing to me. Much thicker than the 18 and much less distracting funky tastes than the basic Longrow Peated.
