Whisky Reviews for Longrow 2001

- 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.
- Nose. Prune. Compote of prunes and other dried fruits. The taste is sweet plum jam that has stood in a jar for a long time, and a little candied. Strong black tea with thyme. The aftertaste is sweet and gives off a hint of buckwheat during roasting.
- 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.
Restrained, light smoke-peat hues, grain, furniture varnish, spicy wood, fruit pipe tobacco, raisins.
Dense, rich, oak, peat, a lot of sweet raisins, ash, coal, bitter cortex, lollipop colors.
Spicy, warming, strong raisin notes, peat and charcoal gently frame them, a bit of tart oak, grassy bitterness.
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.
Wow, quite different from the nose. Muddy, vegetal peat. Big dry white wine notes here. Dry stone fruits. Candied citrus. Caramel pudding.
Long. Slightly lemony. Muted but present peat. Warm wine. Hints of horseradish/wasabi. Tobacco.
