- Blind tasting.
Pepper, liquorice, syrup and sulphur. Sausage, oily and liquorce - salmiak.
Pepper, oily and fruity - exotic fruits like mango. Liquorice, sulphur - fireworks and citrus - lemon. Later some wax and salt.
Medium drying with liquorice, pepper and orange.
- This is definitely not a dram for everyone, but I like it.
Caramel, roses, strawberry, cherry, plum, lime and peat.
Peat, toffee, cherry, plum and oil. Perhaps even some petrol.
Peat, toffee, cherry and plum.
- I believe this is a nice example of a whisky containing flavours not everybody is able to nose & taste. For me this is the second whisky (aside a sherried Glen Grant) I had difficulties to swallow and indeed here I didn`t. It resembles like urinal cake for me (sorry for the bad image).
I gave the bottle to a colleague at work who came back to me few days later and mentioned that she and her husband couldn`t drink this whisky either, but they had a friend who loved it....so this is where the bottle ended and did finally make someone happy
- As the ratings show, this
I like it actually, then again I didn;t get any of the soapy-ness people seem to have a problem with, for me it was merely an unusual upfront bitterness.
If you liked the flint-stoney
recent Longrow CVs for it's unusual taste, this is the same on
steroids + more sherry (if you don't get soap like me...)...
stones (bashed against each other) +, muddy/farmy/manure-y +/o,
freshly tanned leather (red) o, spicy sherry o, (dripping) meat roast
fat o/-. (85)
peat ++, dark spices +/o. (85)
less peat than in the
palate o, redwine / tannins +/o, dark wood o, more spices +/o &
some cardboard o/-. Bitterness is much more extreme in the palate
than in the finish. (83)
- actually great substance, except for the soap, but always better than the average rating of Base, I like such young vegetables
Peaty, dark chocolate, an extreme spiciness with a hint of fruit
nice peaty fruity and really spicy longrow, strong, you would accept CS, dark chocolate, the sherry fits well in but a little soapy
