  1. dRambo scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    another malt that you can put in your glass blindly and you point out, it is at least from the 70s or before, the style, the clarity, the way the flavors are woven - just beautiful
    • Nose
      92 92
      a hint of completely decayed smoke, polished old wood, a little dusty, clear, clean tea aromas, crystalline fruit, jasmine flowers, very clearly tobacco leaves, very fruity apricot jam, a hint of orange, banana - ripe to overripe, dried dates, compote, cinnamon, leather, wood workshop , Nutmeg, bay leaves,
    • Taste

      Fruit - tobacco - wood, a beautifully balanced composition - whereby tobacco and fruit struggle for supremacy, but the tobacco is subject to a tingling flavor that also reminds of fresh chilli, pepper, rosemary and ginger and acts as an amplifier for the fruit flavors - yellow dried fruit, compote with a dash, jam - very interesting aroma development and all the fruits from the nose are also on the palate, swell up and down - sometimes there is fresh crisp wood in the foreground then it is again deliciously sweet, sour fruity - you don't want to try because it smells so good, then do not swallow, but then immediately the next sip

      It is also very clean here - dried pineapple is also added and the wood notes become a little green, long and very harmonious finish that is very cultivated

    Nose: ripe peaches, watermelon, banana. Popcorn. Malted bread notes. Very harmonious notes. Sweet and fruity. Minty freshness in the background.
    Mouth: vanilla cream, spicy oak. Soggy bananas. White pepper. Slightly soapy, rose water.
    Finish: oak, again white pepper. pretty dark caramel.
    Conclusion: wonderful matured old longmorn. A highlight for me

    • Nose
      92 92
      Yellow warm, very ripe fruit, slightly dull. Old orange and apricot jam, ripe ripe apples, some mango, slightly overripe banana. A fine bourbon-vanilla touch and cool mint steal forward from time to time. Dense and compact. Very deep.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Starts silky and round on fruity notes, then comes through fine white pepper, cinnamon and Piement, fine polished oak. Changiert between fruit and spices back and forth.
      Somewhat malty in the background. Will be dry, balanced.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Dry, but not bitter. Short fruity, then quickly changes to spicy notes (cinnamon). Ends on fine oak.

    Fantastic! A magical and versatile fruity, which disperses into rare, complex and exhilarating aromas. The body and the balance are excellent.

    Longmorn 35 yo 1975
    (44%, Nectar of the Daily Drams 2010)

    Nose: very elegant and rich. A big amount of peaches, tangerines and almond cookies. Hints of papaya and banana. Lots of honey notes. Lovely beeswax. Also quite some esters: shoe polish, even some hints of marshmallows (these notes fade after a while). Nougat. Subtle mint and spices. Altogether pretty brilliant and hugely attractive. Mouth: starts on wood and spice (soft pepper, nutmeg, some aniseed and mint) but quickly regains its fruitiness, mainly oranges. Less harmonious than on the nose, but punchy and entertaining. Fades on lovely tangerines and pink grapefruit. Finish: long, rather sweet, with citrus candy and honey. Drying in the end.

    Great selection by Daily Dram. I would say this is anything but a daily dram though! I’ve also tried the Whisky Agency version (sadly not directly head-to-head) and I had a slight preference for this one. Around € 200 but it will be difficult to find as I was told it was very very limited.

    Score: 92/100

  8. tomy63 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very easy to drink with 44%. More fruity than the others Longmorn 1975 or 1976 but a little less than the 1971-2011 G & M.
    • Nose
      Very sweet and very fruity, exotic (mango, banana, tangerines). It looks a lot like the 1975 Daily Dram at 50% less powerful obviously and a little more complex.
    • Taste
      Still exotic fruits, yellow fruits and citrus (peach, orange, lemon) some spices, a minty side.
    • Finish
      Long, soft then becomes more and more dry.
