  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Longrow 12 year Oloroso 1996 57.9%

    N: Damp earth, dried strawberries, wet autumn leaves, a horse stable, some Springbank minerality, lingonberries, vegetal Peat.

    P: Juicy, leafy, vegetal, dunnage, dark chocolate, a tiny bit of sulphur...maybe, but it’s ok here, it’s all in balance. Minerals, crushed wet rocks, wool.

    F: Juicy, dusty, damp earth, dark chocolate, dried raspberries, slight sulphur again but it blends right into the longrow profile, I don’t mind it here.

    88/100

    Notes: Another surprise! I find Longrow can get confused with having sulphur because of its barnyard, vegetal, earthy type of peat. I prefer it to the last 18 year Longrow I had. It actually feels older than 12 years. I didn’t see the abv until after I finished and wow, it drinks more like 46%. Always a good sign in my book. Not huge oloroso influence, but enough that everything is harmonious. A solid Longrow that gets my endorsement if the price is right.
