Whisky Reviews for Longrow 1989
14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.92 points
Strawberry, apple, peat, mango and fig. With water some cocoa.
More peat. Red apple, strawberry and pepper.
Peat, cherry and caramel.
- Body: gentle and soft.
Dundee cake, raisin, pecan , smoke. More sherry than smoke.
The peat bedded down in the rich fruitcake character given by the sherry cask. Subtle, rich and weighty.
- Review 2014.12.22.
- 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!

- Although it is not my favourite type of whisky, I liked it!
At first there is a hit of delicate smoke, a bonfire like smoke. When it settles a bit, a bunch of fruits appear - cherries, raisins, oranges and lemons. Plenty of spices there too, pepper in the first place. Complex.
A spicy one it is. Loads of pepper, chili and ginger, like a regular Springbank. The peat smoke is there at the background gracefully complementing the spices and fruits.
Very long. Pepper, peat and wood. Nice.
