Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Slightly alarming hue,but rich fruits: berry picking in autumn with a bonfire. Oily smoke grows as it opens:blueberries and salt. Now,there's a combo you don't get every day. Just stops being jammy.
Palate: Fruits to the fore, light spice,fine grip. The smoke slowly picks up and takes charge on the back palate.Best neat.
Finish: Salt!
Comment: Longrow's bold character manages to boss the wine cask resulting in a fascinating combination.
8.4
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Rich,stewed plum,smoke.
Palate: A nice oak and smoke one two,burnt cardboard,a nice balance between sweet and sour,complex and full.
Finish: One of those that grabs the roof of the mouth and hangs on,and on.
Comment: The unusual cask provides a different take to the previous malt - but not an unwelcome one.
