    A classic Longmorn, lovely tropical influence, tasted H2H with Longmore 1969 GM Cask: https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/23809/longmorn-1969-gm
    This one is slightly more distillate driven, less expressive fruits on the nose. However, more oily and dynamic on the palate.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Very expressive nose, a beautiful old-style dram, a lot of dried pineapples, fresh melons, and crystallized orange. A bit winey, some new furniture, hints of sour palate. Huge OBE, there are more sherry influence: Christmas cake, dates and raisins, toffee.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Syrupy, very oily, very sour, big but smooth, very mouthwatering.
      Fresh melons, some tropical components, similar to a Bowmore.
      A tad vegetal, wonderful oak, very spicey, herbal, a bit drying at the end.

    Superb - recommended.

    My sample was filled, when the bottle was almost empty. Maybe the original quality was even higher.
    • Nose
      A little bit discrete at first nosing - elegant and sweet with notes of orange cake, sherry and toffee. Hot lemon with honey ... hay. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Powerful, bold and fruity at first mouthfeel - sweet caramel and toffee, multi vitamin juice, orange and passion fruit.
    • Finish
      Very long and still fruity, warming from deep inside
