    Body: gentle and soft.

      Oily.

  10. Armin Fuchs scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Very dens and complex and exceedingly spicy!

    Mighty peat, but also fruity and with sweetness.

    Not the most elegant one, in exchange earthy, 'dusty', 'rural' and powerful!

    A Longrow with a strong character!

    (2014.12.22.)

    • Taste
      Sherry, fruits, citrus, pepper, some salt, sour oranges, smoke, bitter coffee, peat, tart cask, cocoa powder, grapefruit, grilled meat / bacon, some malt and cereals, some sulphur, Sherry cask
