  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Wonderful whisky.
    • Nose
      Lime, peach, apple, honey, caramel, malt and gentle peat smoke. More toffee after a while. Even a grassy touch.
    • Taste
      Lime, peat, mango, chocolate, honey, beeswax, orange, toffee, pepper and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Milk chocolate, peat, lime, red berries and a salty touch.

    The 2100 bottling is still too simple, the peat is weak (compared to conventional Springbank), the wine is mediocre (you are double distilled), the malt is light, and there is nothing to remember except for the sweet and sour interweave of a little fruit. Comparing Longrow in 74 years and 18 after resumption of production, it is not difficult to conclude that the quality of Yunding Shirley barrels may have experienced a cliff-like decline. Today's Longrow 18 still picks up this barrel to drink.
    • Nose
      Marine-type light peat fruit-flavored refill bucket, what did you think of? Bingo, Talisker 35. Broken sea intestines, oyster shells, sea car, juice from boiled port crab, reefs, bright pebbles by the sea, mineral-flavored textbooks, hearty and clean. Lemon juice, oranges, apple peel, mushrooms, peach, yellow apricot, sweet and sour balance, honey, malt, vanilla, peat.
      The legal loli, the follow-up 18yo took the road of farmhouse, this one highlights the minerals and fresh fruits.
    • Taste
      Mineral water, white reefs on the seashore, tender and slightly sour juicy fruits (like a wine barrel without defects Finish, of course we know that this does not exist), mangosteen, pretzels, malt sweet in the form of cake embryos Show it, waxy, vanilla.

      Medium, medium fat, sweeter, very little acid, no tannin, no sourness, no bitterness, no spiciness.
    • Finish
      Long, indifferent sweet and sour fruits, ash, honey.

    First release. Great balance!
    Nose: this is something magical ... A sweet creamy cake, citrus, vanilla, mint, light honey, candies, and against the backdrop of all this diversity there is a light haze of a fire ... Great!
    Taste: pastries, butter cream, honey, old salty wooden support of the pier ... ash ...
    Finish: long and pleasant ... Heat ... At the receptors, honey and butter cream are the basis, and all this is sprinkled with ash.

    The balance is at the level, but at first a little scares, you need to give a little breathe. 22
    • Nose
      Hmm, the first nose is very closed, despite 46%, even more accurate is not that closed, but some kind of absurd, on the first background some not very tasty sour, then a pleasant enough farm inherent in many Okto-mam in the form of a barnyard and silage and then mineralization in the form of stones, dust and still that, from start 21 is already shown and it even with a stretch. He was puzzled and left to breathe for half an hour under the lid. Subsequently, the sour was lost, the farm did not return, but came light fruits in the form of a clear lemon and echoes of peaches with oranges, and a little seasoned with spices and peat. Already everything is much more interesting. 23
    • Taste
      Quite strong peat and bourbon base in the form of light fruits, but unfortunately a bit thin for me, at 46% I wanted much more. 22
    • Finish
      Long enough and harsh, but the fruit retreated, and ash, soot, burnt fire, something even reminded Ardmo. 22

  8. valery77 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Not bad, but the price / pleasure ratio, perhaps, is not up to par.
    • Nose
      The first wave - smoke, peat, ash, light lemon sour. Something like a mineral water. Then sourness weakens, sweetness is added, something like apricot jam and sweet baking. But smoke, peat and ash still dominate.
    • Taste
      Smoky-peat, sweet, sulphurous-mineral. A little bit sharp.
    • Finish
      More likely, long. Smoky, sweet-salted, but without the Ailov sea features-iodine, ozone, algae.

  9. DenisLeonov scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Balance (23) Steep mole, a bit thin, but it's nitpicking. (92)
    • Nose
      Grass, sweet peat ... mineral ... lemon caramel ... eucalyptus ... oatmeal cookies ... zhivotinka
    • Taste
      Ashes, pepper, wax, salt, orange in pepper glaze (23)
    • Finish
      Finish paper-wax ... burning ... spices, salt, orange peel and mint ... burnt wood ... a wave of caramel-smoky, dusty lemons
