    Wow. I'll start by saying to date, this is the best longrow I've had. It will be sure to put a smile on your face.
    Exceptional longrow, and fortunate enough to have a 6cl sample, to have it multiple times.

      Now I'm not one to get stuck into the hype of bottle tasting notes, but straight off, I feel like I'm walking through an orchard field full of red apples, and a grassy breeze is filling up my olfactory system. Wow, the peat has really dissipated here but replaced with a fruit syrup juicy fruit style of peat.
      There is a citrus element of lemon drops, and that mineral distillate character we keep seeing appear from 90s distillate single casks.
      Hints of dunnage goodness, hessian, hay bales. We're on a farm, which certainly feels like it, an orchard field next to a giant weatherboard shed, painted red, with a white roof, and trimmings.
      Im in love with this nose

      Wow, now we're in longrow territory, the peat on the palate is more pronounced, arrival is tempered down juicy fruits, then that mineral chalk profile, white pepper, a touch of bitters and nutmeg, ginger.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Lots of white pepper on the front of the palate, barrel spice, oak (but not overbearing), whilst the front of the palate remains spicy, the back of the mouth has this orchard fruit sweetness. The finish is medium, nearing to long, just not quite there.

    scbp-7653, it's easy to think of some 70s Laphroaig, vegetable feeling and peat with a certain dusty feeling, but the feeling of cloud top is also obvious, in short, there are many advantages of old things in it, the most important of which is sweetness Sufficient degree, no sharp bitterness, moist oil, and low irritation.
    • Nose
      92 92
      A little bit of egg yolk and even pastry, a little vegetable, creamy, burning apple wood mixed with tangerine. The whole is old books, grass, some chopped grapefruit, fine jackfruit, salted fish. 92
    • Taste
      93 93
      The peat is not obvious, the flavor concentration is high, a little citrus acid, and then the sweetness is full, honey, freeze-dried apples, a lot of fructose, pineapples fully soaked in brine, condensed milk and vegetables, maltose. The fat is full of milk, the flavor is strong, the wine is supple, and the finish is slightly youthful. p93b93
    • Finish
      90 90
      The aroma of milk fat and even milk powder is strong, vegetables, slightly astringent, sweetness is retained, and a little rough original feeling is displayed, which is not satisfactory. 90

    very complex - the existing sample is ultimately not enough to penetrate it completely
    • Nose
      89 89
      mineral cold ash in a lemon cloud, yellow plums, maritime flair
    • Taste
      90 90
      Lemon and orange lemonade drunk from an ashtray, ripe apples, greengage, hints of liquorice, its dry, spicy oakiness settles heavily in the cheeks
    • Finish
      90 90
      long dry sugar sweetness and pleasant smokiness

  5. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Right from the start, nice fullness, you can smell malt, cereals. Braised vanilla. A few puffs of smoke, clouds of ash. A good chimney fire, crackling logs, the smell of soot on the hot stone. The hay, the barn, the Springbank brand, but it's very intense. Looks like candied hay. A twist of lemon on whipped cream. Loose soil, good for tilling. The sun on the ears of wheat. Nuts, baked chestnuts. Gingerbread, pine bark. Juicy pear. Starch.
    On the palate, peach juice, spices, pepper, cumin, nutmeg, vanilla pod. After the spice fire, it becomes soft, woody, cereal, honeyed again. Almonds, calissons from Aix. Barley sugar. First powerful finish, on nutmeg and paprika, then it calms down, it's soft and very long. Malt, straw, vanilla milk, lemon pulp. Pecan nuts.
