    Quick hit review. Online tasting 01/2023.

    My main concern with this single cask was the low ABV, but rest assured that it has no negative impact. Strawberry ice cream, mineral peat smoke and whiffs of an old tobacco pouch form a magnificent nose. The syrupy arrival is followed by stewed fruits, brine and gentle peatiness. It is light but not thin. Eucalyptus, licorice and peppery oak migrate into the medium-length finish. An excellent Port-matured Longrow, which is rarely seen in these days!

    RATING: 4.4/5.0 stars ≙ 90 pts → SUPERB [-]

    (Tasted blind)
    NOSE: Sweet peat smoke, not quite bacon. Over brewed black and lightly smoke tea. Nice, medium rich. With time; leathery. (89-90p)
    TASTE: The arrival is sweet like sweetened smoked tea. On the mid palate dry liqorice, slightly hollow in the middle. Not very complex. (88p).
    FINISH: More sweetened tea, including very mild astringency. A mild touch of pepper. (87p).
    OVERALL: I have to admit I was slightly disappointed when this was revealed as Longrow 21 YO as I would have hoped for a higher level of complexity in such a whisky. Also I found it a bit to sugary. Total score 88 (89) points.
