    Longmorn 37 yo 1968/2005 (56.9%, Scotch Malt Whisky Society, #7.34, ‘An absolute stoater’)  What a stoater is, I don’t quite know. But I know what they used to smoke at the SMWS at that time (hey, the statute of limitations has expired!) And no, Google’s not my friend. Colour: reddish mahogany. Nose: chocolate, prunes, blackberry jelly, hay, pipe tobacco, tamarind purée, Spanish ham (you don’t need the details, do you), a touch of walnut liqueur. It’s clear to us, isn’t it. Old-style sherry monster with flying colours. With water: I’d add that it’s getting appropriately humussy and mushroomy. Mouth: old Demerara rum. Port Morant, perhaps. And clove liqueur, more walnut wine, more chocolaty liquorice… And ristretto coffee, cough syrup, all that… In fact it’s so thick that some friends may find it a little tiring. You can’t quite take more than three drops at one time. With water: as often, citrus saves it. Lemons and oranges will cure any whisky. Finish: long, massive. Orangettes! (that’s candied oranges dipped into chocolate, in case you don’t know). Comments: so, what the h**l is a stoater? Me poor Frenchman, me not know subtleties of English language, monsieur madame excusez-moi. SGP:652 - 90 points.
