  1. Calmar scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Excellent molding, impressive in depth and variety, the fragrance evolves from a restrained and minimalistic to kaleidoscope hues and halftones, a harmonious combination of rubber and red wine in taste and finish, densely and sated.
    • Nose
      Restrained, moist, opens with rubber notes, raw grain, wood dust, grindstone, raw ash, over time red wine, black currant and chokeberry grow very powerful and juicy; light smoke-peaty tones, old books, plum jam, walnuts, confectionery flavors - mannik, fresh moist cake impregnated with jam.
    • Taste
      Rubber with semisweet red wine, very harmonious, sweet and sour dried fruits and berries, bitter-peppery wave.
    • Finish
      islo-sweet, wine notes, nuts, cream tones, black pepper, grapefruit crust, creamy tones, boiled condensed milk, light oak smack.

      Long aftertaste in which the sweetness and smoke predominate. Still salty, yet again Barolo wine, beautiful

    Had this one in the cupboard for a long while and finally got around to tasting it. The nose doesn't do it justice.

    Smell Nose: large areas of marmalade, old books, moist musty smell, peat, plums and apricots, a little lemon juice, pepper, sawdust and tannins, energetic and abundant, with weaker stamina

    Taste Palate: still salty and wet, a large piece of orange sugar, peat and choking spices such as pepper and cardamom, little succulent plums, a bit of berries, younger barrels of tannins have some intrusion, but to a certain extent meet On the demand of shaking M, I was fascinated by this combination.

    After rhythm Finish: Long, but gradually becoming unitary, some smoked, nuts, cream, black pepper.

    Body: A soft, moderately alcoholic body with mild oils and fat, significant alcohol strength, and a slight burn.

  7. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Longrow 13yo 51.3% Red WID: 94433 vs. Longrow 1995/2005 55.6% Tokaji WID: 529 vs. Longrow 2000/2008 55.8% Gaja Barolo WID: 1910

    The red is a very tasty malt. The Longrow Rauch along with the spicy and fruity notes of Malbec. The finish tends to make the malt smoother. I just seem to have a problem with maturing in the wine barrel. Somehow, the wine often seems to me to be put on. Unfortunately, this is also the case here. But it's probably just up to me.

    Now the Tokaji. Rarely had so many raisins / rum raisins with a whisky. It's really interesting. This is partly reminiscent of PX. The smoke is more reserved compared to the red. This is probably covered by the Tokaji. Then sticky in the mouth, but then the oak is there too and it gets a lot drier.
    Funny part. Not bursting with harmony now, but somehow tasty. But can also understand if you don't like it that much.

    With the Gaja the smoke is now more intense again. Also more intense than the red. In addition, the fruits are darker than the red, but not as dark as the tokaji. Overall, however, closer to the Tokaji. Overall, the Gaja is tart and spicy, but less dry than the Tokaji.

    Interestingly, I didn't have these "wine problems" with Tokaji and Gaja

    The Tokaji is a pretty extrovert colleague. You have to like it. I kind of like it.
    The Gaja is on the tart and sweet side and does its job well. Also considering the age.
    The Red is probably the most accessible. A good malt if I didn't have these "wine problems" more often.
