  1. Equinox80 scored this whisky 96 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Some oranges, peat, a bit of plastic, seaweeds, also camphor, mineral notes and mint.
    Taste: Quite peaty, good taste of bitter oranges, lime, ginger, dried fruits, then liquorice, followed by medicinal notes.
    Finish: Very long, salty, peaty, very bright and clean.

    Tasting note by Serge Valentin

    Longrow 1973/1988 (50%, Samaroli Fragments of Scotland, ‘Campbeltown’, 648 bottles) Colour: dark straw. Nose: starts on quite a lot of camphor, beeswax, Tabasco. Develops on herbal tea, dried fruits (pear, banana) and fudge. Much less smoky than the 1973 OB's, and closer to a Springbank. Notes of pollen and a bit of marzipan. I like it a lot, it’s quite complex. Mouth: peatier than expected, with some caramel, burnt cake, lots of spices and ginger. Quite bold! It gets more and more gingery, and even a little bitter but in a nice way. The finish is long but perhaps a bit too grassy. Anyway, an excellent Longrow, perhaps just a tad less impressive than the OB’s from 1973. 92 points. (thanks, Bert)

    [February, 2003]  I had this dram during a MaRa
    Springbank tasting in Limburg.  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 this 95. 
    My notes state a perfect mix of peaty, malty and bacon flavours and aromas.  Simply adorable!
