    Old style sherried longmorn, great selection!

  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    It's been a while since I tried one of these, but if my organoleptic memory is correct, it reminds me of the series of Longmorn 1996 bottled by Van Wees.
    • Nose
      Rich, voluptuous sherry notes with a hint of yeast, but also bitter coffee notes and dried tobacco leaves, as well as a chalky note. A touch of menthol too, but also luscious fruits (plums, dates) and vibrant spices, mainly pepper. Finally some polished leather and aceto balsamico.
    • Taste
      Oily, syrupy and mouth-coating. Pretty earthy, with touches of strong espresso, cough syrup and some mild chili heat. Some touches of dark chocolate as well, with a whiff of thyme or oregano. Finally hints of tobacco and dried red fruits.
    • Finish
      Cloves, a touch of cinnamon and some orange zest. Long.

  5. vlad78 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A warm autumn or winter drink. It's minus 15 outside, and it warmed me up well.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Plum jam that spilled out of the pan and burned on the fire. A little polish, sweet jam on the morning's toasted bread and butter. Sweet carbonated drink.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Sweet, even a little cloying taste, such an old jam, with an expired shelf life. A little baby medical syrup. Some pink chewing gum.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Aftertaste of sweet candies and cotton candy, which are sold in amusement parks.

    Blenders Glass.
    The scent is associated with Dimple from the 70s ...
    Sun-dried figs and dates, wax furniture polish, leather, pipe tobacco and old wood, a drop of varnish ... Oldstyle nose! 23
    The taste is sweet, repeats the nose - dark chocolate, dried dates, old wood 22
    Medium-lasting aftertaste, dried dates, chocolate covered cherries ... 22
    Not easy, but excellent, well balanced hammer 22
