A NAS Longrow to accompany the 18 year-old that most of us will never get a bottle of. Subtle it aint, but fans of peaty, citrussy young drams will not be disappointed. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010, and another gong at the Malt Maniacs awards in the same year.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom

    Nose:  Dry smoke.  Cigars and canvas.  Rockpools / wet stone and rain-moistened tweed.  Water makes it more like oilskins (maybe put on over the tweed?) and turned earth.  Young but enigmatic.

    Palate:  Smoke, then an unctuous thick feel.  Clings to the tongue.  Deep syrupy fruit, semi-dried peach.  Brooding and powerful.  Complex

    Finish:  Black treacle.

    Comments:  A belter.  Highest recommendation.

    Score: 8.6 / 10

  • Tasting Notes by TF

    Nose: Some early wet cereal notes, alongside something curiously white wine-like; wet dog, old cut grass; then some orange / tangerine notes slowly appear, ash, dusty dried turf, charred wood and lemon peel.  With time, beautiful light orange blossom / Cointreau notes take over.

    Palate: Quite hot and assertive, with flavours very much from the nose and a much more prominent peat, white pepper and tingling spice presence; meanwhile the orange notes from the nose are sweeter, almost estery, and the savoury cereal notes are ever-present.  Then the lemon arrives, but much more sherberty (if that's a word).  Calms down considerably after being left ten minutes or more, and becomes much more approachable.

    Finish: The peat and pepper ease into fourth gear and cruise along down the tastebuds, with occasional citrus cameos and a palpable briny character adding to the fun.  Very long and drying.

    Comment:  The key to getting the most from this dram is time in the glass.  At first a bit overpowering, assertive and astringent, but contact with the air produces a much better balanced dram.  Longrow fans will like this a lot.

    Top single malt I've ever had. Looking to purchase online to replace the 200ml sampler bottle I bought. Great product!!!

    Possibly one of my favorite Scotch Whiskies I have experienced so far. Smooth, satisfying, and thoroughly enjoyable.

    light pepper and honey on the nose then very subtle arrival like watermelon, an unexpected peat and pepper evolution, then a long ginger and smoky tingle to finish. On reflection a bit too easy to drink, because I guess the arrival is so sweet and light. This would make a very good summer whisky as it is so light. For the heavier syrupy malts, then the Springbanks from this stable are perfect.

    Technically impeccable, and contrary ot TF's impression, very appealing as soon as I poured it. Not as uncompromising and terroir-driven as earlier releases, and lacking the unmistakable iodine Islay character. Way too easy to drink.. how about bottling some magnums?

    Tried on reccommendation and a lovely smoky, smooth whisky it is too.Got a kick at 46% but needs no water in my opinion.
