Whisky Reviews for Longrow 1998

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.41 points

  1. penumbra scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    It is delicious and complicated, but Madeira brings a little excess of tannin and sugar, which willfully damage the longrow's iconic oily wine body. The excessively prominent sweetness and sweetness are closer to the cocktail, which makes the complex flavor in the scent. It has become younger. Maybe next time we should try to finish only two years?
    • Nose
      Iberian ham oil, pickled olives, can be said to be very dirty. The medium peat, a little black mud on the seashore, is slightly weaker than Lagavulin. Dried flower essence is slightly irritating, with a small amount of milky flavor. After a little rest, the taste will turn into thick and dense, butter, plasticine, nut oil, excess honey, citrus, grapes, figs, persimmons and other fleshy fruits.
    • Taste
      Medium tannins, sweet and sour, vegetable oil, garlic, spices, cream, salty, fireworks, pepper, 50% dark chocolate, bitter almond, orange bitter essence, slightly tightened when closing.
      Strong, medium fat, medium sweet, tannin is more obvious, with bitter bottom.
    • Finish
      Medium long, bitter orange wine, smoked, western tomato thick soup.
