  1. Vallado scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Edit: Re-tasting on 10.1.2021. This time the alcohol seems too unbalanced and a bit disturbing in the nose and on the palate. So I correct it to 90-89-88

    Blind tasting
    • Nose
      92 92
      White pepper, lemon, grapefruit, vanilla, hay and dried meadow herbs, freshly broken branches are becoming increasingly sweeter, a potpourri of light fruits follows (apples, star fruit, gooseberries, not fully ripe pineapple), yogurt / pudding, a little caramel and removed cotton candy
    • Taste
      90 90
      The start is quite hot at first - more chili than pepper -, then lemon, gooseberries, mango, passion fruit, sweet vanilla, honey, very light wood bitterness, which flashes every now and then in the beautiful interplay of sweetness and acidity. Nice texture on the palate
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long and creamy, malty, fruity, wood-spicy

    This was a sample courtesy of lincolnimp.
    A strange one, experiment with water over a few glasses and you may find the sweet spot and it could be great. Twas ever thus.

      This smells a bit like a swimming pool on first sniff, strange.
      Smells like a swimming pool on the second sniff, even stranger.
      A few drops of water opens it up more, the fruit notes start to come through and makes it a lot more pleasant, there is bubble bath in that swimming pool.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Tastes a bit like a swimming......naa only kidding but it is a bit dull to be honest.
      It's lacking in flavour, too woody, like sawdust almost.
      I have to add a drop water because this is going nowhere.
      Few drops of water and it comes alive, biggest comeback since Lazarus.
      Now we are talking, again those fruit notes come bursting through and it's pleasant on the palate. Still just lacks a little something.
    • Finish
      75 75
      The finish it is trying it really is, there is something ready to burst, maybe with a little more water but I don't have anymore left as it was a sample.

  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A nice honey, butter and fruit zest nose, is followed through the palate but it lacks a little balance and is slightly hot.
    Lighter coloured fruit gums are mixed with bags of spice but I think water is needed here to calm it down.
    Water has tamed this and the fruit is challenging the spice as the dominant flavour.
    A very good longmorn that is on the fruity side and definitely one to experiment with water, neat it does not reveal all its virtues.

  5. Moritz scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Round and very well balanced, quite complex. The bourbon barrel has a clear influence.
    • Nose
      Fruity, a little vanilla and caramel. Alcohol well integrated.
    • Taste
      Dominant vanilla, spicy and quite fruity.
    • Finish
      Vanilla enters the background and fruit becomes more dominant, towards peach.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful characterful whisky. Pretty full flavor, with especially sweet (honey, caramel) tones and also some fruitiness in the direction of peach.

    Very sweet and slightly fruity whisky.
    • Nose
      fruity, peach, apple, banana. Also sweet, honey, vanilla, caramel, toffee
    • Taste
      The sweet and fruity from the scent also comes back in the taste, accompanied by a light pepper. Soft taste. Honey, vanilla, caramel, peach
    • Finish
      Medium-long, slightly peppery. Honey, caramel

  8. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Fruity is the keyword here, but this Longmorn does have more to offer.
    • Nose
      A fruity ex-bourbon matured whisky this is :) Peach, apricots to start with, and then banana and apples. There's a pinch of nutmeg, with walnuts as well. There is thin layer of glue in the background.
    • Taste
      Lovely oily and fatty mouthfeel. Coconut shavings, honey, cane sugar with stewed pear. Some slight bitter orange zest with a spicy edge (black pepper). Well-balanced  and dangerously drinkable at cask strength.
    • Finish
      Caramel notes and honey linger for quite some time.
