    Longmorn 36 yo 1967/2003 (43%, Mackillop's Choice, cask #3345)  Mackillop had an utterly stunning 1976 a while back (WF 94 – yup). Oh and remember the old adage, crappy packaging, wonderful whisky! Colour: gold. Nose: pah-pah-pah… Honey, olive oil, peeled oranges, pinesap. This is so totally perfect, despite the lower strength, and so extraordinarily close to the old Macallan’s from Macallan’s days, that you almost need a tissue. Makes you cry. Mouth: 43% vol.? Are we kidding? Wouldn’t that be 53% vol.? Mesmerising combination, involving honeys, spearmint, peppermint, tobacco, marzipan, liquorice, roots (gentian, ginseng and the likes), more olive oil, white Alba truffles, a drop of turpentine, crystallised oranges… Well, I haven’t had to resort to maltoporn too often in recent months, but beware, it may be coming! Finish: long, and greener/grassier, which is always fab because that leaves your palate cleaner and fresher (for the next one, ha-ha). Saps. Comments: one of the ugliest labels ever, and one of the greatest Longmorns from the swinging sixties. Please, dear whisky industry, do not break the mould once and for all! SGP:561 - 93 points.
