Nose : Wood varnish notes, banana, apricot, vanilla, honey. A bit closed and even after aeration it doesn't open that much.

Mouth : Fruits from the nose and orange, spices, mint and honey.

Finish : Medium, creamy, minty, spicy, salty.


Very good and elegant Longmorn. Maybe a bit too restrained overall.

Nez caramel, vanille, coco avec une pointe de solvant, la dilution apporte une acreté moite.

Attaque caramélisée puis des fruits jaunes puis une poussière alcoolisée.

Finale longue mais trop alcoolisée. Pas mauvais.

un vrai Longmorn 76 bourbon, très fruité, un peu citronné, long, très jouissif. 90/100.

Nose

Tropical fruit prances towards your nostrils in this quite creamy nose. Apricots, melons, pineapple, it has it all and more. Apfelstr

Taste

The first thing you notice on the palate is the spices. Ginger is more obvious now, but also white pepper and a leaf of mint that keeps it fresh and alive. The fruit evolves toward fruit pie. Apple cake with icing sugar. Then a bitter edge as if from grapefruit skins and Seville oranges. Orangettes! The oak plays second violin, but is clearly a virtuoso. Wonderful.

Finish

The finish is very long and reveals some more wood, without going over the top. It remains fruity and sweet.

Comments

Admittedly, 250 EUR is not cheap. But then, this whisky is an absolutely top malt.
