    Reminds me a lot of the Kilchoman bramble liqueur ... takes getting used to ..

      In the nose it reminds me of Kilchoman's Bramble Liqueur. In addition, young and somewhat metallic smoke. Nothing that completely picks me up now.

      More coherent in taste than in the nose. More direct and less young. Red fruits, a pleasant sweetness and caramel. These brambles are still very present. But I'm not a Shiraz expert either. Still, red wine has nothing to do with Bramble, so it’s a strange part.

      Somewhat metallic, medium length. Can be done, but doesn't have to be ...

    Very interesting whisky, unique in taste. I was very surprised. The light smoke is well integrated. I think the whisky is very harmonious due to its 5-year maturation in the Shiraz keg.

    Glorious Red i fell in love with. Too bad it was in a pub and the bottle long sold out. Let's be clear here, you get intense wine cask notes but those harmonize greatly with the medium smoky Longrow distillate. A winner in my book but you gotta be open for experiments.

    my favourite from the Red series. Nice smoke, fruity and complex. Because of the maturation, it has a well working balance between the casks.

    Second is the Port Cask for me. All that came after 2015, it is not the same that the first three bottles were were kickin'.

    Sub 200 Euros, get one and crack it open!

  9. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Spicy, slightly smoky, some mulled wine, sweet fruit notes, almost jam (even sweeter with water)
    In the mouth: strong, smoky, salty, some sour notes. Distinct wine aromas. Very warm and with water even sweeter here. Finish: tart, but with sweetish notes of wine, salty and the peat notes stay long at the end. Conclusion: Unusual whisky. Smoke and salt paired with sweet wine.

  10. Jean-Claude Van Dram scored this whisky 86 points Member Junior

    On the nose: peat, smoke, nuts, vanilla, some hay, tagada strawberries and flowers.

    On the palate: sweet peat, red fruits, burnt gum, spices, tannins and ginger.
