  1. ThS did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    18 yo 1990/2008 (58%, The Whisky Society,
    352 bottles)
    From two barrels. Colour: straw. Nose:
    powerful but very aromatic at first
    nosing, with huge notes of hot oak
    (freshly sawn), kumquats, beeswax
    (burning candle) and argan oil, developing
    then on grassier and more resinous
    notes (olive oil, ginger, fresh putty,
    almond milk, cedar wood, pencil shavings).
    Something that reminds me of Glenmorangie’s
    Astar or of Glenlivet’s Nadurra
    but with a slightly bigger complexity.
    Very, very compact nevertheless. With
    water: it gets a little less ‘modern’
    and a little wilder and farmier, which
    is nice, but it doesn’t quite
    change globally. The spices are a
    little more prominent (curry). This
    Longmorn has also something a little
    Japanese. Mouth (neat): rich, punchy,
    sweet and very oaky, more or less
    in the same style as on the nose when
    neat and in that sense very ‘Missouri
    oak’ again if you see what I
    mean. A lot of lemon marmalade, ginger,
    vanilla and then hints of pineapple
    and coconut (pina colada indeed) with
    soft spices on top. Once again, it’s
    very compact and straightforward when
    neat. With water: I think it’s
    the best part now, as it lost a bit
    of its wham-bam oakiness and delivers
    some better defined fruits such as
    ranbutans, Williams pears and watermelons.
    The spiciness is more polished as
    well and there are some added notes
    of honeydew and strong lavender honey.
    Finish: long, with the oak getting
    a little more talkative again. A lot
    of oaky spices. Comments: excellent,
    very straight-ahead ‘modern’
    malt whisky, with wood technology
    inside. SGP:551 - 86 points.
