    Longmorn 19 yo 1992 (52,6%, Malts of Scotland 2012, bourbon hogshead Mos 12011, 205 btl.)

    Nose: round and fruity with some gooseberries, citrus candy and tinned pineapple, but it’s not just about the fruits. It also shows grassy, mineral and flowery notes, even some herbal edges from the oak. Then back to warmer notes: apple pie, vanilla and almond paste. Definitely from the same family as the older versions. Mouth: nice and fruity (apples, oranges, apricots, hints of mango). Faint hints of rum (a certain vanilla / coconut combination). Honey. Again it’s easy to see where this is coming from, but this one is punchier with more zing from the oak (ginger, nutmeg). Again traces of herbs. Finish: long, sweet, candied with cinnamon and hints of moccha.

    Sweet and full of flavours. I’m sure casks like this have the potential to age equally well as their 1970’s predecessors. Something to look forward to already. Around € 90.

    Score: 86/100

    This is a Longmorn Yankee! In a blind tasting, one could confuse this
    with a bourbon. A very good bourbon, mind you. Interesting cask selection!
    • Nose
      It has a sturdy nose full of vanilla and sweet malt, like a dark beer. Immediately
      thereafter a nice fruitiness emerges on peaches and citrus. Halfway through it
      becomes very bourbonny, spicy, think gingerbread, with a touch of marzipan.
    • Taste
      It is slightly creamy on the palate, heavy on spices (nutmeg, ginger,
      pepper) and wonderfully sweet. Again peach and citrus and again bourbonny. A
      perfect continuation of the nose.
    • Finish
      In the finish, that is long and remains sweet, the malt again rears its
      head.
