  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Port + smoke in great interaction. Not very complex, but it just gives away totally in terms of taste.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The nose fits the name of the series, because it screams red, written in bold, over-ripe red fruits, not very sweet, but sour fruity, behind it is creamy, caramel, vanilla, like the cake floor under the fruit cover, the smoke is there, without playing a leading role, slightly spicy, towards wood smoke, over time, the spice is more dominant, some oak, leather, brown sugar, the nose is heavier and heavier, shortly it smells slightly burned
    • Taste
      90 90
      oily, the mouth is full, wow, sweet, red fruit, raspberry and cherry, slightly bubbly, great, the smoke lies like a pleasant veil over everything, wood smoke, short dry intermezzo, caramel, a hint of oak, supple, very pleasant in To drink cask strength
    • Finish
      88 88
      Nut comes to it, the red fruits last a long time, the smoke slowly fades, warming

    • Nose
      92 92
      leather, red wine tannins, burnt engine oil, some dirt mixed with sun-parched herbs.. then comes the deluge of raspberries

      patience to give the spirit time to breathe and unfold is rewarded as it opens up spectacularly to reveal stronger smoke.. sweet and sour forest fruit jam.. strong citrus and, unexpectedly, coriander.
    • Taste
      90 90
      a wave of raspberry fizzy sweet drink hits first, the strong fruit note seems almost too strong to be real, as if chemically created.. moving into bitter, dry astringent - not necessarily pleasant, but totally interesting and my curiosity is picked!

      very potent.. strong oak.. sweetness is almost gone
    • Finish
      87 87
      still a little spicy and citrusy.. it becomes quite dry that i find myself thinking of a martini.. softer than i would have hoped for

    I’d say it lives up to the hype. The port is integrated beautifully, with loads of Longrow character shining through. The peat is rich but not really intense or ashy, and has plenty of nice coastal and industrial notes. That herbal character that I sometimes haven’t really got along with in Longrow is here serving to amplify all the tropical fruit. That’s the cherry on top I think: those gorgeous mango and rich fruit notes.
    This is a must-try for Springbank fans, and the best peated-port whisky I’ve yet reviewed.

    Nose: Spiced fruit and rich smoke. Loads of fruit: Pear, orange, maraschino cherries, strawberries, raspberries, coconut, dates, and gobs of pineapple and mango. Mango for days. There’s that wood-fired oven note again. There’s some of that green flavor, too: eucalyptus, dandelions, and juniper. Musty barley notes, but with a sweet edge. Frosted scones and buttery croissants. The smoke sits way in the back at first, but came forward with time. There’s toasted sesame oil, peanuts, nori, beach rocks, and a good dose of industrial funk. Pickled ginger.

    Palate: Thick oily texture. Syrupy fruit at first. Red grapes, then red wine, ginger, dates, flowers, bacon, and sea salt. Loads of dried tropical fruit in the middle, balanced with plenty of savoury spice. Earthy barley, Szechuan pepper, brown sugar, poblano peppers, then dark chocolate. Toasted walnuts, nori, tobacco, black pepper, and grimy industrial peat smoke. Savoury spice notes of turmeric and cumin, with some sour earthy notes. Slightly lactic too, maybe. Those green notes come in at the back of the palate: camphor and eucalyptus, with more ginger.

    Finish: Long and rich. Coastal, layered, savoury-sour peat smoke. Banana, mango, pineapple, nectarine, maraschino cherries, and orange. Cinnamon-baked apples. Raspberry yogurt. Earthy and dank barley. Red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting. Slightly waxy. Fragrant black pepper. Honey and a trace of vanilla. Distant smoked fish and bacon. Toasted peanuts.

  18. Palindrome scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Longrows and Springbanks don't shine with port oftentimes. Not sure why. Just one of those things. The type of port casks sourced seem to be shipped in the warm weather months or from vintners that just don't have the best wood, probably due to the way the empty casks are stored.

    I really do like many Springbank and Longrow sweet wood bottlings. Just not usually the port or the burgundy which tends to remind me of the smell of old mountain cabins and the sweaty innards of ice skate boots (in a bad way), along with the kind of fruit leather that I detested as a boy.

    • Nose
      The heavy sweetness of the port initially covers everything with raisins and nuts. Then the smoke pushes forward with earthy-musty notes and slightly acidic leather. Exciting nose that I like a lot.
    • Taste
      Strong start. Full mouthfeel. First creamy sweet, but then quickly dry with plenty of oak. The leather is also back, but more restrained than in the nose. Hardly any smoke.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Dry. A lot of oak.

    Very good whisky, which is hard to find because of the limited number of bottles.
    • Nose
      At first light grass tones, matolin, later on the sweetness of the syrup, port, oak tones, a solid dose of spiciness. Vanilla, caramel, creamy chocolate, peat background. Very pleasant scent
    • Taste
      The initial onset of peat followed by ginger spice, vanilla, caramel, bitter chocolate, wine tones, citrus and salt.
    • Finish
      In the aftermath of chocolate, vanilla, oak, wine, once again pronounced ginger spice and salt.

    Jop - that's cool. You can safely drink without water (as i did) but I can imagine that with water is also good! A great part - but bite is nice :) One more gulp: Now this caramel comes even more. A bit dried fruit in the nose, brown sugar and a stain in the panties! Yes 11 years in the port wine barrel are already awesome. Not as intrusive sweet as some of the side by side with Port Finish, but - how should I say - just different.
    • Nose
      A bit sour, peach, nut, a bit bitter, like walnut. Yes, the right strawberry edge as often in port whisky I do not have. It's rather all the orange fruits like peach, mango, apricot. The acidity is pleasant, so not vinegar but rather rosé wine. I hardly have any vanilla and wood. He also smells fresh rather than typical Springbank musty.
    • Taste
      Caramel and .... Boah that has to be sorted first ... Yes caramel, nuts, leather armchairs, and the aforementioned mustiness (my association with the chair). After 5 seconds of chewing, the quite heavy seasoning, the oak cargo and the fruits come after. But also not really strawberry and the typical dark fruits, but rather tangerine, or orange peel. Maybe it's the oak that reminds me of the orange peel's bitterness? Breathing through my nose I have a touch of cinnamon, as well as a kind of sugar that I can not really define. I just call it 'cutie'. The whole thing is underlined by a not so fat smoky note as one would expect.
    • Finish
      For ages. The malt settles between the tooth and the cheeks and does not want to give way anymore. The mouth is constantly occupied with this pleasant bitterness. The acid I had in my nose is totally fizzy! In the finish, then again shows above game. Bauer gives this yoghurt with cereals, apricots and mango. This mouthfeel I have .... great!

    Nose:-
    Intense root and herb peat. Trademark pungency cling by the rusty
    mineral and coastal notes. After water, soft tropical fruit reveal, with
    tinge of nail polish.

    Palate:-
    Big and vibrant mouthfeel. Rush of flavours make it handful to accept
    on first sip. Take a
    second sip to really enjoy the complexity. Refine sweet maraschino
    cherry and red dates with oak spiciness and dryness, good intensity,
    firm structure. Unbendable.

    Finish:- Smooth and long finish. Dry and raw nature. Chewy dram with creamy fruit aftertaste. Whiff of banana and red dates.

    One of the best I had tried lately, Totally a worthy winner as Best Campbeltown on WWA 2015.

    I like this quite a bit better than the shiraz. This said, I don't like the woodiness in it at first. After about three months in the bottle, it opens up and the woodiness is assimilated into the whisky better. At first, there is a rotten woody flavor that is not so nice. Some might call this "figgy." But I used to work in a wine vineyard as a boy and I recall the old rotten posts smelling like the Red Port for the first month or so it is open. Once this whisky settles down after a few months, it's a different animal. Much more appetizing. 

  41. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I have to compare it with the Benriach Solstice rather than the other Red's and have the feeling (day shape?) That in comparison it is more intense in all respects, more fruit, more smoke, more sweetness plus the grassy and earthy notes. A fragrance that wraps around you and at the same time remains very round. It is confirmed that smoke and port harmonize well, especially at a full maturation. Excellent!
    • Nose
      an intense smoke spreads around the glass, not unlike the Lagavulin smoke, but as soon as the glass is led to the nose, the port wine with all its fruity-nutty aromas is immediately present! Very intense, he is bursting with power and is cute! A wonderful combination, it immediately reminds me of the Benriach Solstice with dark fruits (mostly blackberries and strawberry jam) walnuts, sweet and creamy like Panna Cotta with strawberry, then the smoke comes back with leather, tobacco, some fleshy and earthy and grassy notes , again some vanilla, I like very much

    This is the perfect example that maturing (peated) whisky in port pipes can have exceptional results, where it in my opinion often leads to disappointment.
    • Nose
      Earthy, mud, clay, peat and a trace of smoke, then mainly sweet red fruits, like strawberry, and also some raspberry. Later it develops on mint, and even a tropical edge of peach. There is even a faint trace of almonds.
    • Taste
      Sweet and oily, with a nice load of smoke now (rather than the moist peat), strawberry jam and peach, vanilla, tobacco, black tea and almonds. At the end, some pepper arrives.
    • Finish
      Medium sweet with fruity layers of strawberry and lemon, pepper, ash, counterbalanced by mint.

    Longrow Red 11 Fresh Port Cask 51.8% WID: 57595

    Nose: first pleasant smoke. Not stinking. The smoke is quickly displaced by the port fruit. Fresh mint is added. Then red fruits and vanilla. Walderdbeer? Raspberry? Reminds me of Panna Cotta with red groats and mint leaves. Later comes tobacco smell. Great! I like it better than I remember the Longrow Red Pinot Noir.

    Taste: It is easy to drink straight. No burning. Nice creamy and voluminous mouthfeel. Very cute. Darker and heavier fruits than the nose had announced. Raisins are not. Goes rather in the direction of dates. Leather. The smoke remains discreetly in the background. Then milk chocolate. Not bitter.

    Finish : Warming. Chocolate. Leather. Still no bitterness. The smoke stays in the mouth for a long time.

    Conclusion: very nice. I have to pour the Red Pinot Noir again and compare

    The color is already great, golden brown. The nose is fruity, you can feel the port quite clearly, a sweetness rises with. The first sip you feel the strength, but not uncomfortable. The scent is gorgeous. Oh, he moves in, it gets warm, pleasant, fruity, very nice and round. A drop of water brings out the port even more clearly. I can not feel anything about peat ... It smells great and tastes great. Wow!

    Excellent matter as well as the version of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz. Some of the boys had her at the table at the whisky festival, I sniffed, and I had to go for a sample. It was a great choice.
    • Nose
      Fancy mix of fresh fruity scents (red currant, strawberries, fruit pulp, sugar wool), wine aroma, smoke and peat. More than the portraits of these fruity scents evoke some pink wine. This also applies to Longrow Red. (92 b)
    • Taste
      Significant fruity acidity with gentle sweetness, a strong influence of red wine. In the flavor, the peat is dry, the peat appears at the very end. Spicy. (90 b)

      A lot of sweetness of port wine and smoke (am I enjoying a Dannemann Moods cigarillo?), Cranberry compote to game dishes, Swabian Träubleskuchen, in the end caramel and leather
    • Finish
      Warm, spicy, long, salty and appetizing

    OK dram, not the Longrow I like the most, but still a solid dram. The smoke and the port finish doesn't fit so good together, in my opinion. I liked the Red Shiraz better.

    dry bitterness of Brazil nut, walnut, some smoke, fat port, alcoholic, mineral tingling, salty, pepper, very sweet, the port is very present, but beautifully integrated, behind comes cereals, the smoke is wonderfully integrated and makes this malt even more complex , great interplay of sweet port and dirty, maritime notes

    Our Longrow Red, always bottled at cask strength, is released annually in small quantities and every year a different type of red wine cask is used to mature the whisky.

    Offering a different sensation from Longrow Peated, this whisky is smooth, elegant and subtly juicy. The latest release was matured in Port casks for 11 years.

    Tasting Notes and Comments by Springbank
    • Nose
      Beautiful sweet fresh summer fruits. Creamy with a hint of peat and classic cigar box notes.
    • Taste
      Smooth and elegant, particularly for an 11 year old. Good peat influence accompanied by the juicy current notes of lingonberries.
    • Finish
      A soft oaty creaminess provokes thoughts of brie and cranberry on oatcakes. Long and sweet.

    Colour: Reddish Gold/CopperNose: Wow, take your time because the first impression is peat, lovely, fat succulent peat. Then, after quite a while, malt and red fruits like cranberries and raspberries arrive, followed by oak, caramel, butterscotch, cured bacon, butter, coal, fresh grapefruit juice and salted smoked mackerel!! Some floral tones in the background, with a very complex nose, but it needs time!
    Taste: is strong and perfectly full, with peat(!), red fruit and red wine, nice caramel, orange, black pepper, cardamom and cinnamon, oak, leather, salt and my beloved bitter chocolate!

    Finish: Very long and dry with red fruit, red wine, peat, menthol, salt/brine, black pepper and smoked bacon.With a view drops of water, you get a bit of extra malt and buttered toast on the nose. On the palate the red wine becomes more evident. Finish almost disappears apart from a bit of Licorice, Red Wine/Fruit and Spices. Drinking this whisky neat is the best way, the taste is - absolutely - delicious!!!

    Confusing. I largely preferred the cabernet version
    • Nose
      The first nose is almost repulsive. Industrial household product and cough syrup. This feeling goes into the air. Smoked peat and encaustic. Medicated.
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet and sweet.
    • Finish
      Average

    The 'darkest' in the 'Red' range so far. 87/88.
    • Nose
      Toffee, candied cherry, mocha, peat, cranberry, apricot, gingerbread, marzipan and chocolate-coated sugar candy. A light mineral touch. 
    • Taste
      Dark cherry, peat, toffee, cranberry, dark chocolate, blood orange and pepper.  
    • Finish
      Peat, toffee, dark cherry, dark chocolate, coffee and clove.

    Bottlers note: Aroma: Fresh summer fruits - creamy with a hint of smoke and the classic smells of a cigar box.
    Taste: Very gentle and elegant for its 11 years. The Portfaß together with the significant peat influence brings a taste of cranberries.
    Creamy and soft in the end, with hints of Brie and cranberries on an oat biscuit.
    My assessment:
    The 51.8% appear significantly stronger in the nose and on the tongue than expected.
    With water he is much tamer, but also more pleasing.

  71. Hans-Ludwig scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The longmorn presents itself darkly with a distinctly reddish influence. The aroma is sweet at first. There are exotic fruits. Then there are clear port notes. Then caramel and a little vanilla. In addition a harmonious smoky note joins in harmoniously. In the mouth is a colorful company of sweet fruits, citrus fruits, white chocolate, caramel and, again discreetly and harmoniously, smoke. The finish again brings sweetness and port flavors.
    A complex whisky and a wonderful combination of whisky, port and smoke.
