Nose
Balsamic with fragrant heather, burnt wood, treacle and winey red cherry notes. Hints of smoke appear with some manure laced peat and salt. Now I like this! It's got great intensity and is pretty unique!
Palate
Lightly tannic and very winey with redcurrant / berry fruit. Treacle, dark chocolate and light butyric notes follow. Chunky, earthy peat and hints of brine and burnt wood.
Finish
Long and surprisingly soft with lingering peat smoke, salt and red winey notes.
Comment
With all those red fruit notes, this tastes a lot like Longrow Red.

Nose
Some sweet tea notes, along with honey, baked apples and orange peel, a dash of something potentially smoky and savoury (rosemary) underneath.
Palate
Old books, red fruits, dusty cocao, yesterday's cigarettes, brown sugar and cream. An old world, armchair kind of dram.
Finish
Nice heat at the front of the palate with baking spice notes around the sides and gums. Dark and comforting.
Comment
A classy, rich whisky that one can take one's time with. Wouldn't want more than one or two, as quite full-on, but attractive nonetheless.
