Color
Old gold
Nose

Honey, light floral notes, malt, oak, orange juice, sweet apple, herbal or grassy notes as well.

Taste

medium bodied with vanilla, honey melon, green fresh apples and artificial orange (I am thinking tic tacs). The oak casks are releasing some good wood spices like nutmeg and subtle soft cardamom.

Finish

Medium in length, subtle spices and fresh fruits with a short hint of black pepper.

Comments

Not bad at all. Personally, I like the 16 years old better but a lot of folks is really into this one. There are some lot older casks in this 15 yo.

Since this is the only 15yo in 700ml on whiskybase, everyone will and has rated it as the Longmorn 15yo, no matter if it`s from 2006 or not (it`s a very flawed system as it is. [Either try to have all diffferent bottlings represented via bottling code - or, have one per design change which inevitably will cause rates and comments for different bottling batches. One other approach could be parent releases, where all bottlings of one design/period are parented under a master/parent, and the more detailed ones with bottling codes sit underneath and contribute to the Masters` rating - for people who don`t know or don`t care about specifics such as bottling code et al]). Anyhow enough with the rambling.
 
The MM Rating above is very miss-leading as it applies only to one batch from one of the Maniacs only.

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...
