  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    very idiosyncratic and interesting
    The exquisite sweetness of a Tokaji is the result of everything and mixes with the notes of bitter old whisky (barrel influence), very full of character
    the longer the better, I might like it
    Here the name really is Tokaji & Wood's motto
    for a 10y very intense
    a breath of a very old Springbank ... I take one last sip to dream ....

    a big old house
    an old man in his library by the fireplace
    he pretends to read
    drinks his whisky,
    Smokes his cigar and is far away ...
    it smells like old books, smoke from the fireplace
    and after the old walnut paneling
    maybe he is at the late vintage for the Tokaji
    in the vineyards of Hungary
    then he is not alone ...
    psst ... we close the door
    a very sweet memory in the mouth

    I touched the sky

    • Nose
      Raisins, cold tobacco,
      Plum and walnut liqueur, a hint of tar, raw cake dough in the background,
      some engine oil,
    • Taste
      there are the moldy raisins that are already starting to ferment,
      Walnut, cinnamon and clove, tar, sugar couleur, cigar
      dry on the palate
    • Finish
      Long & dry, bitter, birch bark, sugar couleur
      Smoke and sweet malt come to an end, but stay dry
      getting sweeter

  2. Snerik scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    This is just so cool! A special whisky, but it’s much to my liking. Then again, I’m a big fan of Tokaji and Sauterne wine, so… Swims like an Olympic medallist! 
    • Nose
      Hihi, what a nose! Cinnamon, burnt sugar, marzipan, peat, cloves, sage, sour cream & union crisps!!! How cool is that!? And even some slightly sweeter, tropical notes in the background. I guess that’s the cask working. And it’s working towards my liking. 
    • Taste
      It’s peaty, dry and the cask influence is really coming through here. Red apples, peaches, some lemon and that sugary feeling. 
    • Finish
      The finish is big and the first zip (without having added water) it just a punch in the face! Bang peat! With water it finds its place, settles down and offers a rather more pleasant experience. Long finish, notes of peat, red apples, sugar and cookie dough.

    I can understand that this is a love-it-or-hate-it whisky for many, but I just like it.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Blueberry, caramel, salami, peat, sulphur and cheese.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Blueberry, salami, caramel, spice and cheese.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Blueberry and salami.

  4. ctu scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I think this is not a good Longrow finish. Doesn't really come back the Tokaj wines in the taste, it's too dry.
    • Nose
      Tokaj wine comes well. Musty basement, exotic fruits, marzipan and camphor.
    • Taste
      Powerful, peaty and dry. Big oak and some sweet fruit.
    • Finish
      Medium length, peaty.

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Cheerfully and unusually, the barrel is very active, a lot of raisins, but it differs from sherry, interesting spices, the basis here appears more as a canvas, but the result pleases with the depth and variety of ingredients.
    • Nose
      An open, damp, raw oak barrel, raisins, pitted grapes, even more raisins, new wet leather goods, lemon, fondant, carpentry notes, dry treated wood, light mineral tones
    • Taste
      Clearly pronounced raisin, sweet and sour, with a soft peppery wave (moderate red pepper), spicy astringent oak, creamy notes, orange peel, eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      Spicy, cinnamon, ginger, fennel, caraway, camphor, oak, a little raisins, grape seeds, oily, orange juice, tangerine peel.
