A 16-year-old whisky from Longrow, distilled in 1974 and matured entirely in sherry casks.
Colour: light amber.
Nose: starts with quite some camphor, menthol, camomile tea, straw. Develops on guava, mango, fir tree, honey. Beautifully complex, with the peat smoke underlining the whole. Whiffs of white pepper. A great one, no doubt.
Mouth: beautiful attack on all sorts of dried herbal teas, crystallised tropical fruits (pineapple, mango). Great peat, dried angelica, cold tea… Gets very spicy, with some clove, cinnamon and lots of crystallised ginger and liquorice. Very long finish, on tea. Just superb! 93 points.
