- Tasting note by Serge Valentin
Longmorn 18 yo 1971/1990 (58.1%, Antica Casa Marchesi Spinola) This series is an intriguing one. Some versions are really underwhelming (the Port Ellen) but others are just fabulous, like this one I’ve heard. Let’s see… Colour: amber with bronze hues. Nose: take everything I wrote for the G&M, minus the winey notes, plus old walnuts and camphor. Result: totally brilliant Longmorn. Mouth: exceptional. All kinds of raisins, nuts, herbs (mint, dill)… Plus quite some liquorice, dried fruits, crystallised ones… and tutti quanti. ‘Just fab.’ 93 points. (and thanks, Johan.)
- [March, 2006] I had this dram during a MaRa rarities tasting at Limburg.
In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 95. My notes state a rich oloroso sherry profile with almonds and nougat aromas. The taste is full-bodied and adds marzipan to a well balanced and very delicious body.

- Another great sample from Jacek. Color is copper. Nose is of the darker, more savory sherry variety, the sweet red fruit compote and the almost funky mushroom, beef stock, and leather. Something floral about this as well. Again in the mouth, it's big, funky, tangy, and rich. Cooked cherry and raisin spread, old leather jacket, certainly something fermented. Almost like a sour beer. Really great, pI think it's the second best of this series.

- As Milton Daught was also No. 1 in the collection No., this series initially makes me think that it was a magnificent collection plan to number each distillery. A very noble sherry barrel derived flavor stands out, from the back "rice starchy" abundant wheat and its surroundings are frankly "Benlik" It seems that there is a whiteish peach, yellowish taste Papaya, Mango will come up. I think that this is thin or if it is a barrel of reassembly, it is thought that waxiness stands out, but the impression that there is moderately suppressed by dense Sherry. That barrel quality is a masterpiece, for example, it is a type of stuffed island of G & M past years. It is not an element such as phenol, tar, leather etc, but the oilyness leading to the weight is fused with "grape flavor of the gigantic system", even if swallowed up to the 80% of the time it is called "The Sherry" band. A moment beyond that "tropical flavor" swept up all at once, sweeping the whole and reaching a lingering, it is a feeling "Did you have been drinking the bowmore 60's?" It is full of white + yellow fruits, reminiscent of Bowmore, Benriac, not so-called long mornish, reddish peach, cherries combined tropical ~ exotic direction. If it is to be difficult to dare to do it, the part that the body is covered with rich Sherry and you can fully enjoy the tattoo wheat quality which can surely exist existence with a flavor without a doubt. Although the body was thick, the bulge was an image of whether it is being held down by a thick sherry barrel. Although this bottle was also packed in 1971 distillation 1990, considering the SMWS magazine 68 and the release in the last few years in the same sherry, the quality of barrels (including concentration) has a big difference and probably each bottler is holding Refilling to barrels, I feel that the maturation period is sufficient for release as well from the sense of unity. In addition, it seems that the aging period in the bottle also improved the direction to a good direction. Contents that want to try advocating a theory which was written as Long Morn while being Benlick. . . I do not think of a similar type and I would like you to drink it for those who have been pursuing Long Morn, Benlikk. One that is definitely stepping into the area of miracles. http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=17816
