    A rollercoaster tasting for this one, not very balanced but quite good at times.
    • Nose
      Cripes something very cheesy about this, reminds me of the Ardbeg profile.

       Smells young and spirity, maybe some apple but I do not like the nose.It gets better with time in the glass thankfully, but its mainly on wheat, grain and cereal.
    • Taste
      Some honey, its vey malty and also hot with it, tastes very young to me, not a lot of sherry on show here. plum and apple mixed with the cereal taste now, warm pastries and a little cream.
    • Finish
      reasonable length, getting sweeter towards the end

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Longmorn-Glenlivet 13 yo 1974/1988 (46%, Cadenhead's, Black Dumpy) Colour: straw. Nose: this is much drier and much more spirity and grainy, it’s as if Longmorn’s fruitiness needed thirty years or more to come out. It’s also very grassy and almost acrid for a while, before all that mingles with notes of fresh butter and liquorice and gets much nicer as well as a little beefy. Much more ‘Highlands’ than straight ‘Speyside, with little fruitiness, even after a good fifteen minutes of deeeeep nosing. Mouth: very powerful and once again, there’s quite some oak, but the rest is well there and it’s very nice. Just like on the nose, it’s a very grassy combo, with a lot of pepper on top of that. A very powerful whisky, Longmorn being totally unrecognisable here in our opinion. Finish: long, with traces of ‘a sherriness’ but the aftertaste is very grassy and peppery, with even a little salt. Comments: raw and brutal and in that sense quite spectacular. An unusually beastly Longmorn.SGP:272 - 84 points.

  4. Cobo scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    I do not necessarily have to ... there are much better.
    • Nose
      Tart, wood and lots of grassy sour notes, some licorice and only a little bit of fruit, somewhere far away, I think something like a little sherry perceive
    • Taste
      Violent, alcoholic with strong yeast and woody notes, almost coarse, very astringent and slightly bitter
    • Finish
      First malty sweetness that stops a bit and then for ever long liquorice
