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 ...
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.
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.
