    Since it is not serious that the archive on this shelf will soon be empty.
    • Nose
      Bitter orange, chocolate, malt (what a surprise ...); Although aged in dignity, but remained somewhat ordinary.
    • Taste
      Takes over the nose, all a bit bitter.
    • Finish
      The slightly bitter oak remains, surrounded by the remaining ingredients.

    Balance: (25/25)  Phenomenal!

    A stellar whisky!
    • Nose
      ( 23/25) Butter, sugar, vanilla, and flour.  With a bit more air and warmth toffee an pecans emerge.  Pear and pralines.  Subtle but incredibly alluring.
    • Taste
      ( 23/25) Sweet, lots of pair juice, nice kiss of wood and cherry hard candies.  Lemon and vanilla also.  Ah yes, the taste I was trying to find the name for: Turkish Delights.  
    • Finish
      ( 23/25) A lot of vanilla and caramel sweetness, oddly a hint of mint on the end as well.

    F: medium finish, medium drying with pepper, nuts - peanuts and creamy

  4. Sonett scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    This is a good dram but not the Longmorn I know from other bottles. Without complaints but not an exceptional bottle. In comparison with price still value for money
    • Nose
      A waxy tone of citrus, Vanilla (increases if you let it rest for some minutes), oak (or rather crushed acorns)
    • Taste
      Comes in a bit raw and spicy. Spices continues to increase and stays in the mouth for a long period of time. Some oranges appears together with a light tone of fresh herbs
    • Finish
      Medium to long, going from sweet to dry

    Menno and his crew
    have selected a nice cask of this Speysider. A true summerdram and affordable
    too, for a 19 Year Old single cask.
    • Nose
      It
      is pretty light and rather mineral on the nose. Flints? Some fruit is trying to
      break through. Citrus, peach, gooseberry. But the high note is almond paste. A
      bit of beeswax, too. Vanilla that is getting louder by the minute. Freshly cut
      grass and a leaf of mint. Nice, but I am not yet on fire?
    • Taste
      It is pretty spicy on
      the attack. Cloves, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Then the fruit shines through
      with primarily oranges and gooseberries. The vanilla is even louder than on the
      nose. Slightly drying.
    • Finish
      The finish, which is
      medium in length, remains sweet, warm and turns the mouth completely dry.

  6. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Pretty much okay with an okay price. It's faultless but this isn't why I love Longmorn.
    • Nose
      Partly fruity (gooseberries, apricots, boiled citrus sweets), partly mineral / grassy. Vanilla and almond paste. Fresh oak and mint as well. A faint waxy note in the background. Modern and summery.
    • Taste
      Medium body, with plenty of apples and oranges. Also a few rummy notes that I've found before in middle-aged Longmorn. Vanilla and honey. Also a few herbs and spices (nutmeg, cinnamon) which give the fruitiness a certain dry twist. A little too neutral for my taste, I don't like the taste of alcohol in itself.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweeter again, with warming vanilla, dried coconut and mocha.

  7. Ras Mazunga scored this whisky 88 points Super Administrator

    Today I taste really a lot of chocolate in it and cumin. The cumin makes it very nice imo.

  8. magic_slim scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    My 28th Longmorn but somehow I am not getting along very well with the younger ones. Nothing really outstanding contrary to the older ones.
    • Nose
      Warming, oaky and spirity with vanilla and oranges at first nosing. The oranges are very obvious. This whisky needs time, and after 15 minutes or so even more fruityness has evolved, mainly passion fruits.
    • Taste
      Light with an alcoholic fruityness at first mouthfeel. I would say the alcohol could be better integrated. But after getting used to it, it becomes milder with oranges, oak, even a little honey
    • Finish
      Medium long with notes of concentrated black tea coming up.
