Tasting notes: Longrow and Bushmills 21yr old (OB) Madira F

Postby Frodo » Thu Oct 14, 2004 9:00 pm

Query:

I've seen an IB bottling (Hart Brothers) of 12yr old Longrow. I'm wondering if anyone can give me a review of longrow, and/or the IB (Hart Bros). I've heard Longrow is more peaty than Ardbeg 10yr. Is this so? The only other thing I know is that it's distilled by Springbank. Any feedback would be useful as there are only 4 bottles left at my local store and they're 20% off.

I've heard good things about Gordon & Mcphail, but I don't know the reputation of Hart Bros.

Also, there will be a limited run (again at my local store) on 21yr old Bushmills (OB) Madiera finish that I'm also thinking about, but I've never had it before, and am cautious about making a purchase with that kind of money.

Any help would be apprietiated!!!

Regards
Frodo

If you are asking about Longrow, why have you got Longmorn in your title?

Hart Brothers are very inconsistent. I had a good 1990 12 yr Aultmore and a terrible 12 year old Macallan and 12 yr Macallan is usually my favourite. :x
