  1. schero scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I like it very much. Longrow should be like this more often. Less creamy than usual, but as powerful as a CS 12 spring bench. Reminds me at times of the Glen Scotia Festival Ruby Port.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Lots of smoke, less aromatic than typical for Longrow - but more powerful and mineral, more the spring bench smoke intensified, then strong cherry and raspberry notes, followed by citrus notes
    • Taste
      89 89
      Creamy and red fruity at the beginning, then alcohol and smoke germinate, the whole thing mineral and citrus-heavy again, becoming drier and a lot of heat in the mouth
    • Finish
      89 89
      The heat then produces sticky oak tones, which in particular produce red fruits again, the smoke remains on the palate for a very long time with the spice, later on it becomes increasingly bitter

  2. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    doesn't quite cohere, a bit jumbled. pass me the springbank 10yo instead please. 6/10 (barely)
    • Nose
      a bit prickly at first. time and water. orange liqueur, lots of blackberry and raspberry, summer pudding, sweetish, blackcurrant too, but also a saline character which is nice. the peat goes towards a medicinal side, with plasticine too.
    • Taste
      with time and water - still clearly springbank distillate - in fact it could almost pass for springbank and not longrow! nice fruitiness (peach compote, orange liqueur) and minerality (limestone). red and black liquorice. a bit metallic in the finish on the neck pour, but after time it's quite long, oily, mineral, juicy. but there's a little bit of crab stick and plasticine that does not work.

  5. ctu scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A slightly bizarre encounter between Longrow and port, but good. :)
    • Nose
      Exotic fruits, smoke and peat, spicy oak, salted caramel and orange peel.
    • Taste
      Powerful and creamy. Forest fruits, ash, orange peel, spicy oak, peanut butter and earth.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, fruity.
