This whisky is HUGE! a young unbridled monster from longrow. Finnished in Gaja Barolo wine casks and in total only seven years in maturation it is remarkable to see a whisky of such size and immense complexity at this age.

Colour: polished wood

  • Nose: peat, phenol, heavy, more like Islay peat, smoke and a real sweet richness poking its head around.

  • Pallet: initial sweetness, BOOM, smoke, peat, salt, maritime, phenol, pain. what a crescendo

  • Finish: smoke dissipates, sweetness returns, rich fruits and gentle mouth smoothing spice readying you for the next plunge.

  • Mark: 9/10

one more year of maturation (im not educated enough to say whether it should be in wine or bourbon). and this would be a truly great whisky instead? well it will only astound.
