Whisky Reviews for Longmorn 1997 TWC

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2017]  Longmorn was a long neglected distillery until some connoisseurs found out how excellent older Longmorn bottlings are (especially the sherried ones).  Since then (around 2005) Longmorn became a hyped distillery with lots of releases but not all are really great.  So I am curious about this younger Longmorn in that respect.

    The colour is pale straw and the texture shows just some late fat tears that slowly build legs.  The nose is very closed and shy on a grassy-floral profile, not really impressive.  It arrives hot and very peppery in the mouth without any coating effect.  The taste is still a little immature and unbalanced mainly on sugary sweet flavours.  And the finish is rather short without adding new impressions.  Water does not change very much both in the nose and on the palate.

    This is one of the rather weakish Longmorn that should not have been bottled as a single cask (it would have done a better job as ingredient to a blend).  By the way, the price of this shoplink refers to a 4 cl sample only...

    Weirdly, a hint of smoke. Was this an ex-Islay cask?
    Otherwise, pretty uneventful. Nice fat body, but not much going on in the flavor department besides massive sweetness.
