  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.
    • Finish

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

    From recharged refill sherry butts.

    C: Solid/decent whisky with a natural funk, subtle yet full-on/strong ppm and a sprinkle of festival magic to top it off.

    Re-charred sherry cask = no trace of sherry notes + ashy/charred wood notes. And once again the distillate shines here. Simple, clean, tasty.
    • Nose
      Damp wood, wet bonfire, hay, pencil shaving, wet stones, brine and smoke.
    • Taste
      Creamy, smoky and spicy (pepper, ginger) with lemons and herbal notes. Hints of ashes.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, peppery and lemony.

  4. schero scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very balanced and sweet longrow with a lot of power. The leaves hardly any criticism and should quickly drink away =)
    • Nose
      90 90
      Sweet and fragrant smoke, vanilla, a lot of aroma in the smoke, slightly floral, lavender, baked apple and creme brulee
    • Taste
      88 88
      Directly sweet baked apple, then comes pressure, sweet smoke, warming, spicy, very creamy, just a touch of dryness
    • Finish
      88 88
      Much heat, seasoning, the smoke and the oak remain nice long, the vanilla comes through slowly again

    LR 11
    • Nose
      salt, smoke, dried wet herbs, bunch of flowers
      creamy, vanilla, cooked citrus, not very obvious
      caramel and strawberry
    • Taste
      spices!
      sweetness of the scents, the woody, the less present smoke leaving the peat appear, to amplify the combinations of fruits, varied
      there is a lot of wood, there is wet lichen mold!, there is a creaminess on the sherry which finally arrives, it is sweet, it is fruity, a compote of fruits cooked on the corner of the fire, a little caramel, the salty and spicy return comes with making an interesting sweet / savory!
    • Finish
      quite long on wood, cooked fruit, sherry with ripe fruit and subtle mold
      smoke and dried peat, long finish

  10. detachedblue scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    OK, I gave less points simply because it is not an enjoyable whisky with too much exotic flavours and poor balance.
    • Nose
      Young peaters, nutty, oaky, dry and leathery, sherry is not visible
    • Taste
      Sweet, malty and peaty, some fresh peach and pear drops
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet malt, peat, popcorn.
