  1. CherryHeart scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Wenxiang Nose: clearer, more lively, brighter tones, pleasing, but the taste is not much different from 16 years, the richness is slightly inferior, green mussels, green apples, wheat straw, more obvious smoke.

    Taste Palate: smoked, saltpeter, ink, heavier white pepper flavor, higher acidity is blended with malted milk-like sweetness is not abrupt, no steamer 0 degrees Sprite.

    After rhyme Finish: medium length, smoked, saltpeter, lemon curd, honey water.

    Body: Medium-bodied body with acceptable fat content. The pressure of alcohol is not small, but it is still a good balance and easy to drink.

  3. jjkmlss scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    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,

    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.
