    Very nice Longrow on initial impression but as I continued with it, the wine had more to say in this one as it became syrupy and bordered on cloying sweetness. Initial impression would have put this higher but with the sweetness coming in, it had to come down a notch for my tastes.

    Suddenly there was a faint worry about Genting's flavor barrel series. What exactly did the long-term Finish trade?
    • Nose
      A typical two steamed kan wine, black chocolate, truffle-flavored peat, and fresh sea rainbow shell. Berries, minerals and summer fruits, mare's milk extract, bitter orange blossom, firewood bacon, rustic, firewood, turpentine, straw.
      Although there are minerals and fruit elements, it is not very clear. The smell of fireworks and crops comes from behind. The whole is sweet and oily.
    • Taste
      I don't know if it was caused by a long time or Chardonnay barrel. The entrance was plump and boneless. Matcha, peat, Thai yellow curry powder, chopped pepper, chopped basil, salt, nut oil.
      The fruit is very small, the wine is not strong but the fat is rich, and the peat presents all kinds of dry spices and bacon, with a slight ocean flavor.
      Medium to strong, oily, sweet, no acid, no astringency, no bitterness.
    • Finish
      Longer, pepper, sweet plant ash, soot.

    Rich and delicious. It reminds me of a few drams I’ve tried recently, such that it’s almost a combination of an earthy/grape-jellified Oloroso-cask BenRiach, the lightly-smoky honey-bomb Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry, and a tropical/charred Longrow 11 Recharred Sherry Cask. I like this one better than any of those three, I think. It’s got a more robust finish, and that very nice tropical/lapsang mix of notes on the palate. And, while it was definitely quite salty, it wasn’t overbearing. All in all, an outstanding single-cask release.

    Nose: Nothing shy about this. Fruity and savoury: plum sauce, dried fruit leather, clove-studded dried oranges, nectarine, and grape jelly. Spicy, too, evoking some kind of sweet barbeque sauce. Ahh, here’s the smoked meat to go with it. Earthy notes of dried leaves, wet dirt, and lapsang souchong. Plenty of vanilla and dark maple syrup. Celery salt, as well as regular salt. Blue cheese!
    With a sip left in the glass, it's all perfume, nori, and wood-fired pizza oven.

    Palate: Thick texture. Tarter, smokier, and less syrupy-sweet than the nose. Quite salty up front, then orange, grapefruit, coconut, nectarine, lemon, basil, and burning grass. Lots of lapsang souchong here, as well as leather, dried leaves, and smoked meat. Some cooked, maybe slightly burnt, vegetables as well. It develops into dark chocolate, vanilla, tropical fruit, and honey. Dried meat, green table grapes, and citrus peels, along with charred wood. Comes down into seaweed and sea salt, as well as a hint of juniper.

    Finish: More sweet than smoky. Red grapes, cherries, black tea, vanilla, maple syrup, sharp cheddar cheese, pickled carrots, cumin, and balsamic vinegar. More of that blue cheese. Lingering honey and smoked meat. Just a hint of mint on the back.

    Tasted in line with 16yo chardonnay finish single cask.

    Nose: a lot bolder than the 16yo.There's tons of lemon sauce, orange sauce, fish sauce, pepper, and sweet smoke.

    Palate: Smoky and mineral, almost no sulphury notes. Lemon with roast fish, some bonfire, paper ink and flinty notes.

    Body: Medium, very swifty and punchy. No sulphury wine cask detected.

    Finish: Long with lemon and sweet smoke,
