  1. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    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 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.
    • 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

  4. 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

    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.

    Score: 89/100

  9. lolo did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    nice sherry, alcohol a little too present for my taste
    • Nose
      woody, spicy, some varnish, slightly vinous
    • Taste
      burning at first, spices: cinnamon, wood, sweetened, once diluted cocoa spring with a milk chocolate side, discreet notes of sulfur
    • Finish
      average on the same constant as the mouth I found a little cream of English

  10. Toffie76 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Super nice. I would bet on a drum of PX in the maturation.
    • Nose
      Over fruity. Super sherried. Apricots in jam, yellow fruit compote; grapes, dates, figs, plums. Marzipan. A little yeast. Quite clean, very rich and complex. Wooded. Gourmand, cane sugar, molasses, crème brûlée. Sweet, candied orange. A little smoke / gas / lighter stone in a fleeting way. Brown sugar. Small lemon tip.
    • Taste
      frankly fruity attack, nice malty development. A little more difficult than the nose, less greedy. Dates, figs, sweet white grapes. A little leather and polish. Small round of pepper mill. Marzipan, cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Quite long, spicy and woody. A bit of bitterness fine and persistent.
