Whisky Reviews for Longrow 18-year-old

36 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.23 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [May, 2017]  I had this dram during a Springbank Masterclass tasting at the Campbeltown whisky festival.

    The nose is all about bourbon vanilla and sherry-induced aromas with some hints of peat.  If only the one slightly sulphured cask has not slipped through the quality control I would have scored it 89 or even 90 points.  The mouthfeel is nicely coating with no hot nor peppery moments, excellent!  The taste is on sweet sherry and vanilla-driven toffee flavours with not that much peat as one would expect.  The finish is medium to long and even sweeter on delicious chocolatey flavours.  Be cautious with water as it releases significantly more sulphury flavours both in the nose and on the palate - so if you are sensitive to the smell of hell (like me) enjoy it neat!

    A good dram that is very quaffable...

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      The first nose starts very promising: sweet, fruity, smoky and maritime. Bright fruits, such as apples, pears and oranges, quickly take over the aromatic upper hand. Also, exotic fruits, such as passion fruit and pineapple, I perceive after a few minutes. In the background there are pleasant notes of vanilla / caramel, red fruits (raspberries, strawberries) and delicate oak. The harmoniously integrated smoke and the clear maritime notes (salt) are always present.
    • Taste
      Pleasant start, the silky, very oily texture envelops the palate and the mouth. At the beginning with a very slight tingling at the tip of the tongue, sweet (primarily light) fruits, salt and smoke are also my first impressions. Oranges, grapefruit, passion fruit, red fruits and caramel flood the palate, closely followed by a noticeable saltiness, chocolate, nuts, light oak and rather subtle smoke. Very complex and wonderfully balanced.
    • Finish
      Long. The light and red fruits gradually fade, salty bittersweet chocolate, smoke and spicy oak notes are noticeably gaining in dominance. In terms of taste, the flavors of the refill sherry casks on the finish have so far developed most, even if they tend to linger in the background. In the end, getting slightly drier.

  4. spigray scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    thought I probably couldsave some money this year, but I should have known, that I´ have to buy a bottle.thanks pollenflug for the sample
    • Nose
      very curious about this one cause compared to older version this one is rated very high. I have always been a great fan of this bottle, so let´s see:

      everything´s still there. old coins, shoepolish, rancid butter, ash, smoke, damp earth. so no  real change and who would complain?

      maybe it´s a tad fruitier this year, I found a handful of lemons and apples. hints of solvent, quite some mild oak
    • Taste
      now, on the palate I´d say there is a change, cause this one is more quaffable, it doesn´t have this austerity we are used from longrow 18. still it is brilliant, as I mentioned a bit fruitier but the distillery character is displaced clearly. the oak comes through with wonderful chestnut flavours.
    • Finish
      long and clean.

    The sherry is wonderfully integrated into the great flavors. Wood and fruit very well matched. Masterpiece. Buy more.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Sherry, bourbon and vanilla tuned clean. Pine nuts and creme brulee roasted. Matchstick note (I like it very much) and baked apple pie come through. It is fabulous.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Full program finest oak with pepper and salt. However, the sweetness dominates the events. Roasted sugar, toffee and now comes hazelnut nougat. An experience in front of a campfire with baked apples in aluminum foil. A little dream.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium to rather long and characterized by the rich cocoa, chocolate, coffee notes. A good bar of chocolate for a great espresso in a beach cafe by the sea. The call to replenish is louder. Pure experience.

  7. Sandman scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Peat, rubber, honey, chocolate, cherries, orange, peach and a mix of nuts.
    • Taste
      Peat smoke, honey, peach, apricot, orange, burnt wood, almonds, light salty, sea salt and chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium, dry, almonds, nutmeg, oak, peat smoke, chocolate, little fruit and orange.

  8. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The 18's is very different then his younger, more charged brothers. He is more restrained and elegant. No trace of sulfur. Also much less dark in the nose and mouth. The sherry holds herself back gracefully. He looks but overall adult. It's just a little more subdued. The smoke is also withdrawn. Everything harmoniously interwoven. But that does not mean that this is a boring one. For me, this is an elegant character head.

  9. J.K.Ch scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I caught a local misfortune when I learned the price of the bottle. This is really great drinking.
    • Nose
      Light smoke, supplemented with a lot of fruit, honey and spice tones.
    • Taste
      The taste of this drink offers a perfectly balanced component of smoke, fruit, wood and spices. Quite strange is Chameleon's behavior when I try to find some fruit so there is simply. Bananas, citrus, apples, pears, maracuja, mango, raspberries, grapes ...
    • Finish
      Dozvuk is fruity juicy and smoke is very casual and decent. It stays long and ends to dry to the full end.
