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.
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.
