Colour - Golden Hay.
Nose - This whisky has an incredidly sweet nose with notes peeking through. Mashmallows in abundance - the vanilla variety, with icing sugar and foam bananas adding to the sweetness. Upon further nosing the fruit makes an appearance, brambles, mandarines and over ripe damson fruits. Some savary notes pushing through such as linseed oil - do we smell cricket bats?
Palate - This dram coats your palate in a waxy fashion with its continuing sweet flavours as described on the nose. But there is also the familiar, well balanced trace of smoke which makes a brilliantly complex wee dram that will make you feel right at home no matter where you are.
Finish - The creaminess of this whisky means it doesn't go away - you feel the warmth of this Longrow all the way down to your roots, creamy, sweet with gentle smoke finish.
