Whisky Reviews for Longrow 2001

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.55 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Very funky, but the Chardonnay doesn’t really mesh. A lot of gravel, minerals, chlorine, wool, some sort of weird tropical fruits that you wouldn’t eat, barnyard or farmy Peat longrow is known for. Fresh, but dirty at the same time. I prefer longrow society Sauternes 9 year or even the official longrow 14.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A powerful and rich mole, a vigorous batch of raisins and peat, young, but very dense and bright, of flaws - an excess of bitterness in taste and a clamped flavor, which in time is still slightly opened.
    • Nose
      Restrained, light smoke-peat hues, grain, furniture varnish, spicy wood, fruit pipe tobacco, raisins.
      .
    • Taste
      Dense, rich, oak, peat, a lot of sweet raisins, ash, coal, bitter cortex, lollipop colors.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, strong raisin notes, peat and charcoal gently frame them, a bit of tart oak, grassy bitterness.

  3. Shane_IL scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Chalk. Leather. Ash. Butterscotch. Wine tannins. Intense horseradish/wasabi type spice. Orange cake. Some medicinal and seaside notes crop up after a while. Some herbal honey.
    • Taste
      Wow, quite different from the nose. Muddy, vegetal peat. Big dry white wine notes here. Dry stone fruits. Candied citrus. Caramel pudding.
    • Finish
      Long. Slightly lemony. Muted but present peat. Warm wine. Hints of horseradish/wasabi. Tobacco.
