  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Pretty straightforward but really good at what it does. Lovely signature Springbank distillate that is great even at what is (presumably) a young age.
    • Nose
      Great stuff. Subtle farmy notes with a touch of breakfast cereal and just a whiff of peat. A bit of brine, sweet porridge and a touch of orange, papaya and lemon peel. Lovely waxy and old school.
    • Taste
      Somewhat bolder and peatier with a nice fruity side, mainly pink grapefruit. Waxy notes make an encore, as well as a touch of menthol and a whiff of cardboard.
    • Finish
      Lingering menthol and soft peat.

    A subtle Campbelltown Malt. Clear line, pretty good.

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant smoky silence with smoothed corners, neat, but powerful and full, as if Nikolai Valuev sitting in a tuxedo and a butterfly at a violin concert in the Philharmonic.
    • Nose
      Light smoke, rubber, soot, peat, smoked meat, the flavor is rounded, smoothed, without sharpness and kykuchesti.
    • Taste
      Sweetness, oak, burnt sugar, smoke, soot, hot pepper, creamy tones, boiled condensed milk.
    • Finish
      Warm up, orange and lime crusts, very light ginger, cream, burnt sugar, a little oak.

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    N-
    Energetic bourbon cask character leading the packs with clove and
    plums. Deep fried banana and fragrant honeydew melon creeps in
    effortlessly with masculine burn wood smokes.

    P- Punchy and tongue numbing. Sweet malt and salty smokes, with intense spiciness building up over time.

    F- Fiery and long. Acidic mouthfeel. Drying and gum twitching. Bitter herbs at the back. Decay notes lurking.

  8. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting. I seem to like these Longrow's.
    • Nose
      Briny - salty, peaty, citrus and pepper. Oily, curry, some cloves and mint.
    • Taste
      Pepper, waxy, mint and some parfume notes (not unpleasant). Orange, peat and smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium drying with citrus, vanilla, spices and waxy notes.

  10. cfosterk did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    January 2007 Whiskyfun

    Longrow
    10 yo 100 proof (57%, OB, 2006)

    Colour: straw. Nose: quite expressive
    but a little weird like often with
    the recent Longrows, with lots of
    notes of violets and rotting oranges,
    the whole becoming then quite mashy.
    Also notes of Cologne, lavender…
    Truly bizarre for my tastes but
    I know many guys like it. Little
    peat in this one, in any case.


    Mouth:
    better now, more ‘classical’.
    Bold, peatier, nicely sweet and fruity
    (lots of crystallised grapefruit,
    kumquat and orange). Better balanced
    than on the nose, for sure. Goes on
    with hints of gin fizz, Fanta (or
    Orangina) and a long, peppery and
    orangey finish. Quite a good one,
    in fact, markedly less ‘erratic’
    and ‘uncontrolled’ than
    most finishings the distillery’s
    been issuing in recent times in my
    opinion. 83 points.
