This Longrow first matured for 10 years on refill bourbon casks and then got a finish (or is that a second maturation?) on Fresh Burgundy Casks for 3 years.

It is immediately sweet on the nose. Raisins, toffee, caramel, dried apricots. Some leather and dark chocolate. The peat is rather discreet. After a few moments, the association with warm krieks will no longer leave me.

On the palate, this translates into slightly sour stuff with some liquorice and, well, sulpher. It is somewhat winey on grapes, but the krieks return. Some plums too. And a pinch of salt.

In the medium long finish, it tends towards leather; somewhat drying and spicy.

The sulpher stays within the borders of the acceptable, making this still a very nice dram.
