    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.

    • Nose
      93 93
      Very old-style, thick, jammy, quite strong violets and seaweeds, perfect sherry-peat integration. Inky, soy sauce, ripe fruits, some rotten orange (way too ripe), ripe banana, ultra sweet, some herbs, chewing gums maybe. Some tropical components, not as big as some Bowmore. Also some sweet sea shells and oysters.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Intense sherry-smoke flavours, a lot of bitter herbs, herb medicines, quite woody and drying, tons of wood tannins, rather light body, camphor, strong camphor, some burned woods, ashes. Then dominated by camphor and mints.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long, very minty and herbal, bitter oak, dark chocolates, endless. More apple and tea afterward.

    I wouldn't mind having a bottle or two of this at home.

      Long, menthol, dark chocolate, dry.
