  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Another great
    Longmorn and the ideal dessert dram.
    • Nose
      The nose is rife with
      the fresh and slightly sourish influence from the sherry: dark fruit, the likes
      of raisins, plums and berries, sprinkled with candied sugar. Some tropical
      fruit as well, like banana and coconut. Pretty waxy and spicy too.
    • Taste
      It is mouthfilling
      and creamy. Honeysweet. Apart from the dark and tropical fruit, on the palate I
      also discover white fruit. Apples and pears. Well, a lot of fruit, you get the
      picture. Also reminds me somewhat of Christmas Cake, but without the custard
      cream. Very good. Very much so.
    • Finish
      The spicy finish
      lasts forever.

  5. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Another dram from Longmorn; another cracking pick form the team at Whisky Import Nederlands. Resinous Sherry mingle with excellent spirit.
    • Nose
      92 92
      The nose is intensely rich. Tobacco and cedar, dark honey and cinnamon. Sweet tomato compote and prune nectar and dunnage warehouses.
    • Taste
      89 89
      The palate is raisin and diesel with a rich sweet balsamic syrup. Mint again, tea tannins and almost a twinge of peat.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is sweet bread pudding and mint thins, cocoa and oak spice. Cardamom and apricot compote.

  7. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very enjoyable. Tastes like a mix of malt whisky and old grain whisky. Sherry doesn't overpower which allows other flavors to present themselves.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Cooked fruits, tobacco, cedar, strawberry jam, chocolate notes from old grain whisky, faint vanilla
    • Taste
      90 90
      Chocolate, macaroons, raisins, sweet spices, red berries
    • Finish
      90 90
      Coffee, balsamic dressing, sugar cinnamon, pepper jelly

  8. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very unique barrel, not pure sherry bomb, but a nice twist in it, like.
    • Nose
      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
    • Taste
      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
    • Finish
      Dry raisins, dark malt, old oak, dates, grapefruit peel, dry-sweet-sour, long, warm, here also the slight Grainnähe
