  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A lovely, very different, whisky that I never reach for at random, but only when I fancy this
    one specifically. A special one. 
    • Nose

      Cherry, brown sugar, caramel, fried banana, citrus, raisin, gingerbread and sweet dough.
    • Taste

      Candied cherry, prune, caramel, citrus, raisin, malt sugar, grapefruit, peat ash and leather.
    • Finish

      Candied cherry, plum, brown sugar, citrus, caramel, malt sugar, raisin and a whiff of smoke. The rum very
      pleasantly remains, so after a few minutes you'd swear you've been drink a Caribbean rum instead of whisky.

  4. Willie JJ scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Immense rum influence, almost to the exclusion of all else. Very drinkable though.
    • Nose
      Hugely rummy, all raw cane sugar and cuban rum, Where's the Longrow? And the peat?
    • Taste
      More rum. Did they empty this cask before they (alledgedly) put the Longrow in it?
    • Finish
      Some salty smoke coming through now, along with barley, sugar and pepper.

  5. Falnor scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Not at all the longrow you know. This one is different. The rum cask did a big influence and I liked it.
    • Nose
      Very oily, perhaps even some diesel. Quite thick and a little dirty. After that the fruit comes out. Sugar cane, banana, candied oranges, abricot, apple compote. Just a slight earthy engine smoke.
    • Taste
      Sweetness from the bananas and citrus fruit, spicy wood, liquorice, raisins and dates. Very sweetend Rhubarb. Brown Sugar, custard and warm vanilla.
    • Finish
      Cinnamon buns, grapefruit and raisins. In the end there is a hint of smoke, nice detail but I expected more smoke from a longrow.
