Whisky Reviews for Longrow 2001

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.80 points

  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Springbank and wine barrel actually always works - despite the small age
    • Nose
      dry campfire smoke, the red wine is already clearly recognizable and well integrated, light dirty sulfur notes, tobacco, grape pomace - with water it is fruity and balanced, vanilla is audible
    • Taste
      the red wine-smoke combination is even more present than in the nose, pure peppery and spicy - with a little water, it also offers red grapes and currant jelly, is much sweeter
    • Finish
      smoky, dry, sweet - relatively long with noticeable tannins

  3. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    not for the smoke that covers too much, with water, the smoke is stronger
    • Nose
      slightly smoke, some vanilla becomes stronger, earth, fruit, malt
    • Taste
      the smoke is stronger, red wine, grass
    • Finish
      medium long, smoke

  5. Feusi scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Ha, that's a small explosion, smoke, peat, spicy and beautifully sweetness. Enormously complexity , spicy tobacco and black coffee. In the long finish the smoky notes on the palate hangs for long time. For me this is a classic, they are still there, the new bottlings with top whiskys, indeed.

  6. Willie JJ scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Fantastic whisky. Incredibly evocative, almost like I was standing beside the cask with a valinch.
    • Nose
      this is amazingly complex. Thereâ€
    • Taste
      Strong tea, strong mints, chewing tobacco and salt.
    • Finish
      Tobacco and coal smoke. Long, lingering and ashy
