Nose

Die Nase ist unglaublich dicht und schön. Eine schöne Süße, Orangen, Marzipan, Vanille, Eiche, Andeutung von Torf. Mit der Zeit leichte Andeutungen von Hafenbecken im Hintergrund.

Taste

typische Springbanknoten, Orangeat, leichter Torf, Vanille, Pfeffer, Eiche, Perfekt auspalanciert

Finish

Pfeffer, tropische Früchte, Orangenschale, herbe Eiche und ein Torfaroma, das zusammen mit der Eiche den Ausklang findet.

Comments

Ein fast perfekter Whisky.

I liked the 2014 expression very, very much, let´s see if this one is similar
n: yes it is similar indeed. seems a bit more winey but not for bad. ink!
    same wonderful smokiness, the chalky aromas are a bit less but still there.
    something metallic but not youngish, do you know how old guitar strings smell?
    (ahemm) same aromas of cotton mill and wet wool. wonderful again.
t: oily and good oomph, sweet smoke, sweet lemons ( I know they do not exist)
   mandarins, olive oil. always hard to pin the flavours down, but it is so wonderful.
f: long, still complex
comments: if there was a hymn for that whisky I´d sing it every day.
                   one of my all time favourites.
92/100

Im Vergleich mit dem 2016er gefällt mir der 2015er etwas besser!
In der Nase hat er eine leichtere, angenehme Rauchnote mit schönen Citrus- und Orangennoten. Später kommt leichtes Karamell dazu. Sehr rund und exakt ausbalanciert. Der 2016er ist kräftiger, würziger, rauchiger und hat zu Beginn einen leichten Stall-Muff. Vielleicht braucht er auch einfach nur wesentlich länger im Glas?
Im Mund ist der 2016er alkoholisch schärfer, auch hier finde ich den 2015er runder und angenehmer.
Im Abgang ist der 2016er minimal bitterer, zeigt aber schöne Kaffeenoten.
Insgesamt würde ich den 2015er vorziehen, obwohl der 2016er nicht schlecht ist. Er hat mehr Ooomph und braucht vermutlich einfach nur länger im Glas!
Mein Ergebnis: 2015 = 89 Punkte / 2016 = 87 Punkte

An old fashioned whisky.

The nose is on mastic notes, with that kinda green old peat.
Animal, meaty notes. Tobacco.
Not an easy drinking dram. Needs time, air, water ect. 
Traces of exotic fruits and honey are appearing after some time in the glass. 
Distillate makes the whole job. it's surprizingly not that woody for a 18 yo.
Balance is perfect and it swims very well.
With a sharp and a very salty ending, this really is a freaky dram one will love or hate. 
This is pure Longrow, I like it.

Rustique mais suave, et réconfortant. Un dram délicieux, et qui fait du bien.
