    WHISKYFUN.COM:Longrow 1987/2005 (45%, Samaroli, cask #113, 312 bottles)  Colour: straw. Nose: wow, this is something different! Very far from the current OB’s, starting on a fab mix of clean farmy peat, clean smoky coastality (!?) and aniseed, dill and celery. Extremely clean and fresh yet very complex, getting very ‘porridgy’ after a moment. Soaked grains, dairy cream, yoghurt, mashed potatoes…

    And then we have lots of mineral and ashy aromas, like burnt matchstick, fireplace, limestone… And always hints of fermenting hay and ‘clean wet dog’ in the background, that give it sort of a welcomed wildness. Also hints of vanilla pods and quite some Cayenne pepper and even cloves… Really beautiful, not exactly austere but truly purebred. Mouth: what a superb attack, at an ideal strength here. I’m really glad it wasn’t bottled at cask strength. First we have a mouth filling sweetness, mostly on crystallized orange zests (orangettes) and then a great ‘peatiness’, with lots of both smoky and fermented ‘stuff’, like high-end Belgian beer (old Orval – thanks again guys) or old pu-erh tea, notes of chestnut honey, getting also quite waxy and even gingery. Really excellent, very compact, very satisfying. The finish is rather long at that, spicy, vegetal and peaty, with a peppery afterglow. Just another excellent, elegant and well-mannered 1987 Longrow from the Samaroli racing stable! 92 points.
