    Tasting note by Serge Valentin

    Longmorn-Glenlivet 1974/1985 (60.8%, Samaroli, 600 bottles, sherry) Colour: mahogany – bronze. Nose: extremely sherried at first nosing, very rubbery and quite sulphury. Bold notes of bicycle inner tube, bitter chocolate and dark toffee. I feel this one was bottled just at its peek, one more year would have been too much. Really fat, oily, but with still some nice notes of fresh fruits. Probably a genuine sherry cask, that had contained sherry for years and years. Not monstrously complex but extremely compact and very satisfying, with also lots of liquorice and herbs. A great sherried nose. Mouth: lots of sherry of course, extremely bold and powerful. Not that it’s unbalanced but I’d call it a howitzer of a whisky: lots of gunpowder, dark caramel, toffee, toasted raisins, crystallised fruits and even chilli. A great one indeed but it’s also a little tiring and too pungent. Let’s try it with water now… Ah, much nicer! It is a swimmer. The dried fruits notes become much more precise (pear, guava, kumquat) and it gets also nicely medicinal. Garden bonfire. Totally beautiful with water! 92 points (but only 88 without water…)
