    I added a few drops of water and this one really took off. It is a nice whisky and has good balance but should have been bottled at least a few years before.
    This one is almost going over the oak edge but still a fine whisky
    Timing is everything, saved from the cliff edge.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very rich mixed with cinnamon, a little mulled wine spice, rum & raisin fudge, candied orange, damp wood, cranberry and finally a few bubble gum notes.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Very spicy and rich attack with peat evident from the start mixing with blackcurrant and some bitterness from the wood (to be expected at this age).
      A very faint hint of liquorice but the peat is really taking off mixing with the spice.
      Because of the complexity on show here and balance the wood is kept at bay but it is there and knocks it down a few points.
      With a little water the spice and mainly the peat have really taken off.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Spice, rich sherry and some really juicy dark fruit coming in on the tail.
      This finish is the best part

    Without question, clearly sherrylastig, but without being too sherry dominated. One of the best longmorns.

    A very good Longmorn very marked by sherry. It is in the mouth especially that Scott's Selection makes the difference, with a better integrated alcohol and a greater complexity. This G & M requires a lot of time before delivering the best of itself, but it is a very good whisky.
    • Nose
      Less sweet and round than Scott's Selection, but brighter and tangy with lots of tangerine and blood orange, a hint of exotic fruit (passion), then caramel, encaustic, precious wood, a little vinegar balsamic, nuts, finally, all the paraphernalia of an old sherry cask. It is more chocolate with a little water, but also more animal, with the appearance of notes of musk.
    • Taste
      The attack is frank, and the development does not lack power or concentration and fat. With nearly 5 degrees lower, alcohol is less well integrated than in Scott's Selection. Otherwise we play in the yard very good sherry casks. A lot of oak, but always the acidity of the tangerine which contrasts with the bitterness of an extra-dark chocolate. No exoticism on the other hand, or very little, this mouth is of a completed classicism. Water makes it bitter, with coffee beans, bitter cocoa, but it does not become excessively tannic.
    • Finish
      Long and tannic, it lines the palate well and finishes on a bitter note of dark chocolate mixed with blackberry.

    Colour: Dark Mahogany
    Nose: Toffee, prunes in armagnac, orange marmalade, cigar box, nutmeg.
    Palate: Black currant, cherries, dried figs, dark chocolate, dry wood aromas, nutmeg, hints of pepper.
    Finish: Very long, dry, fruity and slightly spicy.
    Overall: This superb malt shows quite a bit of wood, but the strong flavours and the complexity are powerful enough to keep it in balance.
