    *Speechless*
    • Nose
      Talk about balanced and well-integrated. It's waxy, there's some furniture polish and leather, and light hints of aniseed and mint as well. Baking spices. A plethora of red and tropical fruit and subtle citrus notes. Strawberry marmelade, brambles and orange zest, but also mango and tangerine. Finally some light floral notes. Superb.
    • Taste
      My god, this is fruity. Great refill sherry influence. Never overpowering and always in balance with the spirit. More tangerine, subtle grapefruit and vibrant orange juice. But there's more than just fruit. There's a touch of leather, tobacco and a wee bit of menthol.
    • Finish
      Long, with lingering leathery notes, as well as some light citrus and a whiff of milk chocolate.

    A masterpiece. Less sherry than other 1972 Longmorn but a crazy pleasure.
    Can be even 94.
    • Nose
      Very nice velvety sherry.
      Big fruit, big wood, big camphor. The Trinity is here.
      Plum, currant, green pineapple, papaya, passion fruit. Kiwi.
      Camphor, mint. Fresh.
      Black pepper.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is softer and controlled.
      Wood is more present with spices. Pepper, nutmeg.
      The fruit stands out on the exoticism. Passion fruit and pineapple first and foremost.
      The whole is wrapped in a superb oily camphor.
    • Finish
      Long finish on fruit, rum, camphor, spices. Sublime.

    A great sherried whisky
    • Nose
      Nice & fruity, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry so basically its a mixed fruit jam.

      The sherry is on the light side with some date and fig in the mix.
    • Taste
      Very fizzy in the tongue vibrant is the word I am looking for, a lovely creamy mouthfeel on various dark fruits but also I am getting hints of mango possibly peach.

      This one is quite sweet, jam sponge mixed with a light peat at first but leave it in your mouth and the peat grows.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, satisfying
