  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A style that's a mix of the Lagavulin 16 White Horse and a more elegant Benromach 15. Totally gorgeous.
    • Nose
      What do we have here? Beautiful sherry-matured, subtly peated nose. Tobacco leaves, bonfire smoke, sweet oranges and a touch of charcoal. There's polished leather as well, with just a touch of burlap and charred lemon.
    • Taste
      Oily with subtle notes of peat and furniture polish. There's touches of pepper, but also menthol and plums and oranges. A whiff of liquorice. Very classy indeed.
    • Finish
      Soft, earthy peat notes. Tobacco. Finally some touches of cocoa powder and oranges. Medium in length.

    Tasted this whisky during a blind tasting. Unfortunately I switched to another whisky and region...

    Got myself a 5cl sample. Tryed it 2 times. Got some sulphur on the nose and palate. Also some coastal notes and some peat. I am not so happy with the sulphur notes but they are little. Looking forward to opening my bottle some day.

    This was the 2nd Longrow in a Springbank distillery line-up; and my 2nd Longrow ever. But i is really of an unbelievable quality. Only mild peat-smoke (where I had expected heavy influence). I would call it "silky smooth". Beautiful well integrated sherry notes. Would love to have a bottle, but the prices are simply crazy.

    This is an amazing intriguing and clever drink - what a feast with very subtle tastes that are coming together. Love it! Nose: Seasalt, bourbon, hint of vanilla, barley, peat. Nose changes into red wine with rubber after a while. Taste is full with dried fruits, rubber, turf, nutmeg... Finish is strange: medium but the more you drink (and wait) the more it changes and lasts. Wauw!

      Seasalt, bourbon, hint of vanilla, barley and wheats with some peat - but not too much. After about a half hour the nose changes into red wine with some rubber. Lovely!

      Nutty, warm and dark, bitters with some burned caramel, slightly turfed and very well in check with all the other flavours - some dates and nutmeg as well with even a hint of tea-leaves. Wauw!

      On a first sip the finish was kind of medium-short. But on a second sip it transformed again and become much fuller and longer with some orange peel and terracotta, smoked wood and even a hint of burned rubber at the back - very beautiful evolution.
