Colour: Dark gold.

Nose: Sweet, Earthy peat. Red fruit. dried Grapes. Smoke , BBQ smoke to be more specific.. A little citrus. Pepper

Palate: Spicy. Winey and Smokey sweet. Very very good. The wine does not overpower this strong and virile youngster of a dram, but adds a very nice layer. Some peppers , Earthy peat. Leather. Chilly and Sugary at the same time. A delight. I absolutely love this one. One of the best peat-wine combinations I've had (since of course Octomore 2.2)

Finish: Long. Peppery sweet and smoke galore. Raisins. Peat. Long and powerful. You can not ask for more.

@galg, is this really in the same league as Octomore 2.2?

I have a bottle of this Longrow in the stash that I'm pretty excited to open. The Octomore 2.2, though, is one that I just dream about. If I knew they were in the same league, that might make the dream a little less bitter. wink

Thanks, @galg.

"Re-visit"? Do you still have some of both whiskies still tucked away to do a proper comparison? As far as I know, you're the only person in the entire universe who's made a connection between two whiskies. Don't underestimate the importance of your opinion on the matter! wink
