Whisky Reviews for Longmorn 1996 DD
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points
- An interesting silence, not a masterpiece, aroma-flavor-finish is very different, each with its dominant, but still there is a sense of the integrity and unity of the product - curious, quite diverse.
Open, restrained, warm yeast dough, malt, wiped wet grain, wet boards, raw grindstone.
Sweet-malty with orange inclusions, a little spicy oak, grassy bitterness, though on a sweet background.
Sweet, pastry, cakes, custard, creamy sweetness, light butteriness, very weak lemon notes.
- Longmorn 13 yo 1996
(49%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams 2010)
Nose: a fresh youngster. A few hints of new spirit which disappear after a while. Lots of pears and apples. White fruits. Candied citrus. Gummy bears. Honeysuckle. Hints of almonds. Quite light and fruity. Mouth: very sweet attack. Pear drops. Flower honey. Slightly waxy. Interesting hints of peat smoke in the background, they add quite a lot of depth. Cocoa notes. Finish: oily texture, with nutty notes and subtle smoke.
An uncomplicated but perfectly nice summer dram, this Longmorn. There’s a BBR bottling with similar specs for less than € 50 and a recent Signatory bottling for € 35 , so its price (around € 60) is perhaps the only thing speaking against it.
