  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    great ... an exciting whisky
    the ease of the wine finish
    cleverly combined with peat and barley
    one wavers between delicate light tones and rough spicy ones
    the finish is long, surprising and very good
    I give 91 points for the finish

    mmh, I like them indeed
    • Nose
      the dark rich color irritates my senses
      the flavors are much tenderer than expected
      I'm trying for wine finish
      Barrel, strawberries, a hint of nutmeg,
      behind it moorland
    • Taste
      Soft on the palate, strawberry, again nutmeg, Tartaric acid and tingling, some salt, he gives me the feeling of having a dry, slightly sparkling Rose wine with a strawberry in my glass and strong canapés with salt and spices,
    • Finish
      again barrel, a lot of salt, a bit bitter, spices, smoldering fire
      Malt sweetness and peat smoke ... mmmh ...
      >>> at the end fruity tender strawberries !!
      Like a little dessert

  2. Joe Karacho scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    A very stand-alone, complex and well-made malt, I am very happy about two storage bottles in the cupboard
    • Nose
      Maritime saltiness, smoke, vanilla, dark fruits, all very dense and full
    • Taste
      Oily, strong, smoky, dark fruit, dry and somehow sparkling, very own, but consistent in itself
    • Finish
      Long, oaky and fart-dry

  3. PunxsutawneyPhil scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Close to perfect. The spirit, the bourbon aging and  burgundy finish are in perfect balance with the wood influence. All covered in the earthy, mossy Longrow peat. Brilliant.

  6. etwa77 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    pleasant enough nose on red fruits and peat with a touch of sulphur that doesn’t disturb too much.. palate is however a tad too hot and oak is dominant.. it becomes liquor sweet and syrupy thick with some water.. some bitter notes in the end.. i’ve had better
    Longrows!

  8. Rody024 scored this whisky 97 points Expert Junior

    A lot of emotional value. This was the bottle that made me take my passion serious! Damn this is an awesome dram. One of the best I've tasted so far to be honest, emotional value aside.
    • Nose
      98 98
      Intensity - 7,5
      Richness - 9
      Raisins, cherry, oak, vanilla, leather and a whiff of peat
    • Taste
      95 95
      Intensity - 8
      Richness - 8
      Oily, spicy and sticking mouthfeel.
      Red fruit, cacao, raisins, vanilla, smoke, biscuits and a whiff of peaty saltiness.
    • Finish
      98 98
      10+ seconds.
      Very long and very complex, with tones of fruitiness, peat and biscuits.
