Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

1 of only 184 bottles from cask no. 8898

A refill American oak hogshead, fairly active judging by the full gold colour.  An excellent bead indicates good texture. A mild nose feel to start, slightly nose warming, with hints of soft ginger cake, peaches, apricots, and sea grass.  As anticipated, there is a smooth texture, quite teeth-coating. Plums and prunes dominate the taste with coconut in the finish. At reduced strength the ginger disappears and is replaced by a scent of almonds - almond slice. Now slightly waxy with a light oily base note.An overall soft texture, sweet with light acidity and considerable peppery spice across the tongue, and desiccated coconut in the finish.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Recht warme Nase mit einer guten Portion Orange, Vanillekipferl mit jeder Menge Puderzucker, Baiser. Nach einer Weile mehr in die Zitrusrichtung wandernd.

Taste

Der Alkohol kommt in der genau richtigen Intensitaet am Gaumen an und laesst viel Raum für die erneut vorherrschenden Orangenaromen. Nach der in der Nase praesente Vanillenote sucht man im Mund etwas laenger, dafuer hat man hier nun auch eine leckere Vollmilchschokolade.

 

Finish

Was laenger bleibt ist die Schokolade mit etwas Orangenaroma (allerdings anders als Jaffa-Kekse)

 

Comments

Dieser Longmorn steht altersmaessig zwischen den zahlreichen rund 15 Jahren alten und denen aus den 70er Jahren. Qualitativ spielt dieser schon fast in der Spitzengruppe mit und ist für 27 Jahre sehr gut ausgereift.
