  1. Tauti did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Whiskyfun:

    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.

    I would agree with hot curryish - not bad overall
    • Nose
      Indeed hot in the nose, ginger, wasabi, spices, pepper, whiffs of peat and smoke, little citric and honey - really interesting
    • Taste
      Punchy, fine peat and smoke, little fruity, melons, peaches, spices, hints of ham and bacon
    • Finish
      Long and burning, water recommended

    This is a heavily peated malt from Longrow.
    He comes from a refilled sherry butt.
    The scent is peaty and medically with a touch of smoked sausage.
    It tastes like a hot curry.
