Whisky Reviews for Longmorn 1988 WIN
17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points
- Another dram from Longmorn; another cracking pick form the team at Whisky Import Nederlands. Resinous Sherry mingle with excellent spirit.
The nose is intensely rich. Tobacco and cedar, dark honey and cinnamon. Sweet tomato compote and prune nectar and dunnage warehouses.
The palate is raisin and diesel with a rich sweet balsamic syrup. Mint again, tea tannins and almost a twinge of peat.
The finish is sweet bread pudding and mint thinks, cocoa and oak spice. Cardamom and apricot compote.
- Very enjoyable. Tastes like a mix of malt whisky and old grain whisky. Sherry doesn't overpower which allows other flavors to present themselves.
Cooked fruits, tobacco, cedar, strawberry jam, chocolate notes from old grain whisky, faint vanilla
Chocolate, macaroons, raisins, sweet spices, red berries
Coffee, balsamic dressing, sugar cinnamon, pepper jelly
- A very unique barrel, not pure sherry bomb, but a nice twist in it, like.
A mix of sherry and grainy notes, on the one hand beautiful overcooked fruits, berry stew, red apple, bitter orange, blood orange, beautiful leather, lightest notes of fresh sulfur in the background, some mint vllt. even some anise, but also this special Grainsüße, like Esthernoten, a caramel liqueur with grated coconut, etc., some marzipan, plums
Ui, full sherry dryness with strong sweetness occurs, you need to first assign the fruits, raisins, dates, blood orange, some grapefruit, orange oil, a few red berries, but it oscillates between the sweetness of raisins and real acid as in citrus notes, then mentioned Grainnähe, sweet caramel, coconut, exotic wood, licorice, crazy combination somehow and you must have had much to rauszuschmecken the well, ask me what happened here
Dry raisins, dark malt, old oak, dates, grapefruit peel, dry-sweet-sour, long, warm, here also the slight Grainnähe
- Longmorn 23 yo 1988
(52,6%, WIN ‘First Cask’ 2012,
refill sherry hogshead #14379, 259 btl.)
Nose: obviously sherried, with cooked fruits, berries, oak polish and mint. Raisins and apples. On a second level there are hints of old grain whisky (banana / coconut / vanilla), interesting to have these elements combined. Evolves mostly on spicy notes. Mouth: very sweet and candied. Nicely sherried again although there’s still a sugary barley core to be found. Plums, apples with cinnamon, pear candy. Again a sweet coconut edge. Hints of fruit cake. Some milk chocolate. Remains very sweet until the end. Finish: long and creamy, on sweet fruit biscuits with soft spices.
A very sweet Longmorn full of candied fruits and some unexpected touches. I really enjoyed it. Around € 100.
- nice sherry, alcohol a little too present for my taste
woody, spicy, some varnish, slightly vinous
burning at first, spices: cinnamon, wood, sweetened, once diluted cocoa spring with a milk chocolate side, discreet notes of sulfur
average on the same constant as the mouth I found a little cream of English
