    Longmorn 34yo 1976
    (50,2%, The Whisky Agency ‘Landscapes’ 2010, bourbon hogshead, 139 btl.)

    The nose immediately shows a big fruitiness. If you don’t mind a little generalisation, ‘76 tends to be less tropical than ‘75 Longmorn. It seems right. This one shows quite some kumquat and fresh oranges. Apricots and gooseberries. Lemon balm as well as a little mint and eucalyptus. It shows a nice dustiness and faint flinty notes, but they seem to come and go. Cinnamon. Soft oak. Water brings out grapefruit. Mouth: quite oily. Now the citrus fruits stand out – mainly oranges. Hints of pears. A few resinous notes from the oak. Ginger lemonade. Evolves on grapefruit. Very nice, with a light hint of smoke. Finish: long, on lemon and mint with a little resin again.

    This is a very attractive Longmorn, less luscious and less tropical than some of the 1975’s we’ve had, but still really excellent. Around € 180. Limited availability.

    Score: 91/100

    Very close to the Thoshop 1976. Less tropical than other Longmorn "ex-bourbon" released in 2010-2011.
    • Nose
      Very fruity, but less tropical than the 1975 Daily Dram. It looks a lot like the 1976 Thoshop.
    • Taste
      Lemon, orange, mint, some spices and slightly woody.
    • Finish
      Long, rather on the spicy side than on the fruits.
