- The maritime/costal characters so overwhelming in both the taste and smell
- Delicious whisky.
- Quick, call the headquarters, call the headquarters, request rum bucket support, and request Madeira bucket support.
Hearty motor oil, limestone, salted duck eggs with red oil, ghee tea, yoghurt, moldy cheese, mandarin mandarin fish, cilantro, allspice, kumquat, lemon squeezed on large pieces of pepper bacon, burnt, Iodine water, nuts.
Amazing, it's rice porridge.
Peat sweet water, ash, spicy, shredded ginger, pepper, mint, milky, fruity, spicy oak, sea salt, slightly salty and bitter.
It is very thin. If the 10 years of Genting's home is Bach, this wine has just practiced one hand at best.
Stronger, richer fat, low sweetness, no tannins, low sourness, very low bitterness.
Medium length, sea salt, pepper, peat.
- Colour: green tea
Nose: salt, peated smoke, oily, citrus, sweet fruits, oak.
Mouth: sweet, peated smoke, dryness, oily, pepper and apples.
Finish: long, peated smoke, pepper, apples, dust, sweet fruits.
Longrow is a very good balanced, peaty and complex whisky.
- From Whiskyfun:
Longrow 10 yo 1999/2010 (57%, OB for Usquebaugh Society, cask #489, 258 bottles) Colour: straw. Nose: interestingly, this one is easier than the 14, not because of its strength of course but because the wood has coated the spirit a little more, taming the fairly aggressive coastal and sooty/smoky character. It’s a little grassier as well, waxier, cleaner, probably a little more elegant… And more metallic. With water: oh, the mustard in this! Calms down after a few seconds, leaving more room for some waxy and even ashier and sootier notes. Wet rocks, well-finished oysters (not in table wine barrels, mind you) and damp earth, humus, well-aged pu-erh tea. Mouth (neat): starts a little shyish but then it’s all going tidal, if you see what I mean. Not complex, rather extremely compact, on ashes, bitter oranges, smoked tea and green olives (and their brine). Yes, not complex but wonderful. With water: same, with the smokiness more to the front. Finish: endless, flinty, grassy, briny and smoky. In short, Longrowish. Comments: my style. I could spend two (well, seven) evenings with a large glass of this in my hands. And only ten years old! Congrats to both Franck McHardy (does he have his statue now?) and the Usquebaugh Society, this one was great. SGP:366 - 92 points.
- Notes from internet.
An abundance of coffee, vanilla and Scottish tablet with a hint of coffee. Subtle perfumed notes with parma violets, black currants and liquorice coming through.
Incredibly sweet, yet peppery with zesty citrus flavours such as lemon and lime peel. Charcoal and charred oak present with hints of dunnage warehouse and a salty tang.
The finish is reliable, long, sweet, thick and chewy. A very pleasurable dram indeed.
