Nose
Slightly alarming hue,but rich fruits: berry picking in autumn with a bonfire. Oily smoke grows as it opens: blueberries and salt. Now,there's a combo you don't get every day. Just stops being jammy.
Palate
Fruits to the fore, light spice,fine grip. The smoke slowly picks up and takes charge on the back palate.Best neat.
Finish
Salt!
Comment
Longrow's bold character manages to boss the wine cask resulting in a fascinating combination.

Nose
Rich,stewed plum,smoke.
Palate
A nice oak and smoke one two,burnt cardboard,a nice balance between sweet and sour,complex and full.
Finish
One of those that grabs the roof of the mouth and hangs on,and on.
Comment
The unusual cask provides a different take to the previous malt – but not an unwelcome one.
