Stupidly and alluringly dark in colour, much like the previous Longmorn.
N: Waxy grit, putty, ash, meaty fruits, foosty old kitchen cupboards,…. you name it!
T: Dark-as and strong too, much like a soft-focused Karuizawa perhaps?
F: Away from bitter ash, in moves the barley [some minutes later], followed by heathery ash. Becomes favourably oaky with a ‘suck a stick’ finish, as long as you don’t mind drinking a bit of old oak from time to time.
C: One magical oldie that hasn’t turned to a medicinal tincture. Likely to be best in show.
