Whisky Reviews for Longmorn 1969 GM

  1. nallacam scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    What to say These bottlings are rare and in demand, and rightly so. For me it is always a special quality feature when the nose is already very good and the whisky in the mouth is just another shovel.
    Had blindly tasted this dram, never would have thought of Longmorn, especially because of the passion fruit / passion fruit.

      At the very beginning I have a slight peat in my nose, which later evaporates. Subtle fruit notes, rather reserved. He goes more in the "dirty", earthy direction, herbs like lovage, a little umami. The smell of a freshly opened sugar candy bowl. Sourdough bread, freshly baked and the sweetness of caramel.
      No extreme nose, rather a bit shy ... but my experience tells me that these bottlings deliver even more in the mouth ...

      Hallelujah !!

      Start! Power! Everything that was previously hidden behind a curtain is now fully there.
      Together with MARACUJA. Seldom had this special fruit on the palate. Paired with a herbal note, rather dried.
    • Finish
      92 92
      In the finish, the passion fruit comes again, very long, very intense, the oak comes without any bitterness, green walnut and is dry at the end.

    Extremely diverse and complex malt. I really like the passion fruit note on the finish.

  4. ARDBERG scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Would I like to beam back to Whisky Fair 2008 and buy this bottle. Yes, I do. A fantastically matured specimen from this rather underrated distillery.

    Tasted at a friends 50th b-day tasting.

    The wood influence is obvious there, oak spices leather chocolate toffee with some fruitiness, very good
