Whisky Reviews for Longmorn 1976 TWA

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.14 points

  1. HansG scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Typical bourbon barrel stuff with distinctive longmorn notes.

    A little bit shy on nose because I’m tasting a newly opened bottle, that i can only get some raisin, some woody flavor and little bit of cream. On body it is more expressive, showing its muscles on its powerful, bold but rounded mouthfeel. Palate it shows more raisin, a bit of sugared cherry, ripen apple, and the creamy oaky flavors persists without being annoying. Finish is on the oak bitterness and some herbal bitterness, complexity is ok but the length is no more than medium.

    gold color, very fresh nose, citrus, lemon, floral notes, eucalyptus, wax, vanilla, exotic fruits in the background. On the palate, tangy, almost "tense", lemony, exotic, a little spice on the finish. Final very long.

    A perfect dram Dr.
    • Nose
      Full and delicate, sweet tones of honey, warm cherries and apples. Also a bit of vanilla and wood
    • Taste
      Follows the nose, a little prickly but subsiding fast. Again warm apples and cherries and now a bit more caramel. Smooth on the tongue
    • Finish
      Warm, smooth and a bit prickly, all at the same time. Finish subsides and leaves a soft and pleasant after taste

  6. nulty scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very nice profile, explosive exoticism really fun. Do not swim very well. A little wood anyway, which costs him a point. Tasted blind.
    • Nose
      Superb fruity, thick and greedy. Very exotic. Honey, wax. Slightly smoky, kind of nonsense. Nice spices, nutmeg and anise. Rum baba.
    • Taste
      Spicy attack, the fruits quickly take over. Superb exoticism, it fills the fruits. A little more wood, this is not a problem. Good power. A little ginger.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity, warm and spicy.

  8. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Longmorn 1976 tends to show more citrus fruits compared to 1975 vintages. That's not the case for this Perfect Dram: it's very warm and fruity and the jammy / beehive / pastry notes make it exactly to my liking. I dare to say it's my favourite Longmorn among the releases of the last two years.
    • Nose
      Right. This has the same pastry and honey notes as the Malts of Scotland version. It develops on huge beehive notes, warm wax and all kinds of jams (apricot, mandarin). Papaya, overripe gooseberries and honeydew melon. Butter biscuits with almonds. Subtle mint, vanilla and cinnamon. Intensely fruity and getting warmer by the minute.
    • Taste
      Oily and thick, almost a diluted jam with a lot of warm fruity notes (ripe apricots, plums, melon), evolving to citrus notes (oranges, pink grapefruit) but overall much less citrusy than the other 1976's. Faint leathery notes. A little cinnamon, ginger and mint, but low on plain woody notes.
    • Finish
      Llong, fruity and slightly mentholated. Drier notes only show in the very end.
