Whisky Reviews for Longrow 11-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.43 points

  1. SAND scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    (Opened two weeks ago)
    NOSE: Moderate, rounded, sweet peat smoke with a touch of heather honey. With air; dried fruits as well. Dark honey. This may sound like Highland Park characteristics, but this whisky is “darker” on the peat side than HP. Water doesn’t make noticeable changes to the nose (88p)
    TASTE: The arrival is rich, oily and fairly sweet. On the mid palate there is some tar, peat smoke, hints of dried seaweed. Concentrated. With water it becomes a bit sweeter, there’s also a kind of burnt dried fruits note (presumably from the re-charred sherry staves) (88p)
    FINISH: The exit is sweet, slightly nippy, with several wood spices combined, but not in excess, such as black pepper, dried ginger and nutmeg. Notes of dark treacle. Water makes it slightly drier and a bit more peppery (89p w/o water, 88p w/ water)
    A rather solid and sturdy Longrow, displaying power, not finesse. It will be interesting to see whether it develops with a few months of oxidation. TOTAL SCORE 88 points.

    I can do this all day.
    • Nose
      Mixed with sulphur and meat-style heavy peat, attractive and juicy red fruits, high sweetness, honey, fudge, slightly burnt butter, nuts and grains.
    • Taste
      Taste Palate: At the entrance is rough sea salt and strong crushed pepper. Peat is like a vintage train pit. Sweet ginger, red apples, butter fudge, parmesan cheese, heavy salty taste tangled with the overburning tar, the background is full and rich barley.

      Full and strong, rich in fat, sweet, no acid, no astringency, no bitterness.
    • Finish
      Extremely long, pepper, peat, salted cheese, nut oil.
