Whisky Reviews for Longrow 14-year-old
31 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.19 points
- Balanced and softer dozens, but a dozen touches more
- Molt like and not too complicated and deep, but invisibly tightens, there are new halftones, interesting development in time and almost a merged taste / aftertaste, a good balance, in general there is something to see and what to spend time on.
Raw, light, smoked, hot-smoked fish, an empty smokehouse, smoked wood, the cool coals of a campfire flooded with water, a burnt newspaper, a little lemon and mineral tones in the background.
Slowly, the pepper wave is developing slowly, although it's not the wave, but the slow flooding, against the background of coal and smoke, burnt crackers, then the sweet and sour dominant with smoke and smoked foods in the background, lemon in tea, rhubarb, bitter chocolate.
Continuation of taste, the transition is almost imperceptible, more bitter chocolate, leavened notes, dark beer, burnt caramel, over time, the lemon peel, which is very long, is brightly displayed.

- I like this grotesque whisky, but hard to point.
Today the peaty, medicinal, smoky line goes down to each other.
But the 88 points another time will be occur.
Iodine tincture and adhesive plaster. Orange liqueur, BBQ, copper coins, earth. Peat and smoke.
Big dose of peat and medicines. Bittersweet citruses. Cough syrup. Pepper. Honey.
Medium length, smoky and fruity.
- [October, 2012] I had this dram during a community tasting near Bonn. I bought the bottle for 61 Euro in October, 2004.In
my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
- 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5. My notes state this was the weakest Longrow I had so far due to an unbalanced profile with a lot of flaws (that result in unpleasant aromas)...
