    Longmorn 08/03 / 1972-11 / 07/1988 16yo GM for Intertrade Highlander label 75cl 58.8% sherry casks 507btls. Intertrade - Rimini Cork type - gold capsule two stars This is Longmorn after a long absence of fun! Besides, it is good to have Intertrade Color: It is a color scheme that makes you expect the taste of Longmorn with lively dynamics, even when there is a sign of Munmun type in a rich system Nose: The scent of blueberries returning to childhood is already! It's just a knockout grade, so you do not have to drink anymore! What? Attack: Easy to hit, but feeling with a hard feeling.Woody with sorrow Body: Middleweight of concentration and reduction.Taste: Nuance of wooden houses on rainy day is the best. A subtle dried fruit woody is unique only with Longmorn.Dry dry strawberries and flower fruits keep the health, calm adult nuances.Shimo-like, shiitake-like like soup like Japanese soup stock If there is astringent, fruity with gumi (茱萸) and cherry 's dynamism feeling! But there is no plum. Apart from Longmorn, you do not have to feel plum! What? Forcing the taste is a big objection, how much you scream himself! While saying that, the nuance of apricots pickled in apricots and apple seems to be Longmorn like this one, and it has a moderately aged Oban taste. (Of course Oban is Oh Chang in Japanese, not Distillery's Oban. ) Fiinish: It is good that the feeling that the grape candy goes out of the store is going to disappear shortly for a while, it is western rather than Japanese.It is like that it is a masterpiece that is not Kotteri Munmun system, that is, it seems like Glenugie There is no fascination of magic, but after all, Longmorn is dying! https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyhars7pvryw4

    Tasting Notes from Serge V. (Whiskyfun.com, 27/01/2014):

    Colour: full amber.

    Nose: the digestif will win it, no doubt about that and that was to be expected. It's one of these stunning old-style Longmorns that were fatter and oilier than more modern offerings. Stunning nose, full of beeswax, old turpentine, apricot jam, earthy pu-erh tea, pipe tobacco, metal polish, date wine, chocolate liqueur, mushrooms, old balsamic vinegar... All this is really stunning. With water: even more so. A box of puros from Cuba's best factory. And I'm very fond of these touches of parsley in the background.

    Mouth (neat): this is liquid honey blended with limejuice and a whole bottle of prohibition-time cough syrup (I imagine). Totally exceptional whisky, I especially adore these sherry monsters that show great balance because of a zesty/tarty side. With water: well, maybe it's time to call the anti-maltoporn brigade. Please...

    Finish: long, more on orange liqueurs and old Sauternes from a great year. There's something slightly muscaty as well, and some mint, and some liquorice...

    Comments: extremely impressive, some of these old Longmorns were simply unbeatable. Well done, Nadi, this one goes straight into the Pantheon.

    SGP:562 - 94 points.
