  1. JeJoost scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    15 year old Longmorn bottled by the Dutch independent bottler van Wees. Overall a really decent dram, but not one for those who like their whiskies sweet, there isn’t much of that going on here.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Light and chalky. Lemon juice, golden kiwi, oranges, green apple and lots of unripe fruit aromas. Cinnamon biscuits, baking spices and a little honey. Definitely far more sour than sweet.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Spicy and sour, but not as sour as the nose might suggest. Slightly waxy vanilla, lemon peel, oak, white pepper, nutmeg, tropical fruit in the distance. Nice mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium, bitter. Lemon peel and vanilla again, a little sugary sweetness and alot of oak.

  2. MoutMalt scored this whisky 85 points Newbie

    I got bottle 215 of the 219 from my brother. A super brother. The cap comes off very easily (is it completely closed?).
    It is light in color. I really enjoyed it because of the longer finish.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Not a very strong smell in the nose. A bit fruity and a bit vanilla.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Not a greasy taste but a thin and strong taste that remains in the back of the throat and partially hangs in the nose. Otherwise fruity, powerful, a bit spicy / peppery, rich / complex, full, soft.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Longer finish that mainly retains the slightly spicy finish.

    Very nice fruity Longmorn.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sweet barley, some vanilla, lemons, orange peel, honey and biscuits.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Oily, fruity, chewy, some oak not too much and spicier then the nose.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, lemons, apricots, vanilla, sweet barley
