Whisky Reviews for Longrow 10-year-old

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.16 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    What was a standard bottling some 20 years ago may not be that common anymore. I feel that Longrow hardly has bottlings below par, and this is no exception to that rule. I didn't taste a recent standard bottling head to head, but I find the modest yet complex character of this dram, and the lack of over-evident wood notes an absolute asset. It is not made to knock your socks off with a lot of power, but with balance. I worked with me.
    • Nose
      After pouring, a very pleasant citric freshness leaves the glass, with a puff of smoke. Although nice, it's best to give it some air in order to reveal more than just this. The lemon makes way for orange, red apple and prune. Further there is the signature robustness that both Springbank and Longrow share: a slight burnt and note (pleasant), a bit on the nutty and musty side towards almond and earth/moss. There is peat, a soft, slightly rubbery variant. What remains is sweet, oily barley.

      All in all, a complex, yet mild nose.
    • Taste
      Quite a full body given the 46%, with a nice oily texture, some acidity, sweetness and no harshness from the wood. It's rather earthy and leafy now, with tobacco, dunnage, moss, peat from moorland. The fruity side tastes like dried fruit and orange now. A gentle and warming spice comes into play, giving extra depth.
    • Finish
      Quite long, the oily spirit lingers in the mouth. It gives a medium sweet association, with warming but by no means bitter or drying spice. There is liquorice root, moorland peat, heather honey, tutti frutti and tobacco. A great sensation.

    Lovely Longrow bottled in 2000 afaik. Very elegant and lovely sweet peat with a tad of smoke. Bottle aging made it even smoother.

    At its release, to my knowledge, the most expensive of "only" 10 years of age. But certainly the best. A superb whisky. The Springbank Distillery, releasing the Longrow brand and returning to producing peated whiskys has been very strong. Campeltown looks like Islay!
    • Nose
      Ozone, peat and light but persistent smoke
    • Taste
      Flexible while being sâlé.
    • Finish
      Very long finish with nice smoky notes.

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    A good Longrow, by Springbank distillers. Note made during an exclusive Springbank N&T in 1999.
    • Nose
      Smokey, briny and musty.
    • Taste
      Peaty, juicy and dry.
    • Finish
      Long and chewy.
