Longrow 14 yo 1990/2005 (56.9%, Scotch Malt Whisky Society, 114.5)
Colour: pale straw. Nose: curiously cheesy at first nosing (Appenzeller, Fribourg), with truckloads of lemony smells. Very special indeed. Develops on lots of yeasty notes (fresh bread, mashed potatoes, yoghurt). A malt of its own kind, which I like very much. Mouth: beautifully complex – more complex than on the nose. Sure it’s still sort of austere, like most ‘unfinished’ Longrows, but it’s in a very nice way. Goes on with some lemon seeds and barbeque herbs… The finish is very long and quite farmy. A very nice one, but perhaps not for newbies. 90 points.
