Expert Senior OKoster Review note

OKoster gave this whisky 92 points

In my opinion casknr. 72323 and 105092 are the best of all Ultimate Longmorns.

I love all Longmorn Whiskeys from The Ultimate. I myself have 1 to 3 bottles of each cask and there are 8 different barrels. The Cask Strength Longmorn and Tamdhu are so far one of my favorites!

Tawny
Nose

Grenadine syrup, cherry and raisin. Quite closed at first, it needs some water to open up. Then also toffee, plum, rose hip and marshmallow. 

Taste

Prune, toffee, raisin, mocha, orange, nougatine, marshmallow and spice.

Finish

Raisin, marzipan, dark chocolate and cherry.

Comments

This was a very good whisky for a nice price (55-60 euros) when it came out. In hindsight it can't compete with some of the casks that were released later though.

Tawny
Nose

Sherry und Eiche; Orangen und Sultaninen, süß und voll, Eiche, der Alkohol sticht überhaupt nicht, Kräuter Tee. Die Verlockung zu Probieren ist riesig. Mit Wasser wird er süßer.

Taste

Scharfer Antritt, jetzt zeigt sich der Alkohol doch deutlich, dann kommt sofort die Eiche, würzig und trocken, und sehr dunkle Schokolade mit Orangenschalen, nach einer Weile wird er dann doch noch weicher und süßer. Der Whisky verträgt ein paar Tropfen Wasser, das nimmt ihm die Schärfe.

Finish

Dunkel und bitter, stark verbrannter Zucker, mittellang. Auch wenn der Abgang durch Zugabe von Wasser gewinnt, bleibt er ordentlich bitter.

Comments

Der Geruch ist sehr gut, den Geschmack leider etwas scharf, aber ansonsten kann der Whisky auch am Gaumen überzeugen. Der Abgang ist etwas zu bitter geraten (ich mag sowas eigentlich). Ich gebe nur selten Wasser zum Whisky, aber dieser kann es vertragen.

Color
Burnt umber
Nose

Fruits à coque : noix, noisettes. Léger rancio, beaucoup de café. L’alcool picote un peu les naseaux ! Quelques fruits rouges, mais ce n’est pas forcément très expressif.

Taste

Là encore, l’alcool est bien (trop) présent. Des fruits cuits, des fruits secs, c’est à la fois liquoreux et boisé. On décèle également pas mal d’épices : muscade et poivre. Un soupçon de tabac mais encore une fois ce n’est pas très expressif malgré le degré.

Finish

Moyennement longue sur le chocolat noir et les épices.

Comments

Un sherry CS sympa mais pas renversant. Mériterait surement pas mal d’ouverture et d’aération.

Nose

(Comparaison lors d'un face to face des longmorn vw 17y) Par rapport au #72315 Plus végétal ,plus résineux . Moins sirupeux. Pus frais, plus fluide.

Taste

Le démarrage est plus calme. Cette version est moins brutale avec une touche plus vinaigrée , de la levure et un côté beurré. Les épices arrivent plus tard dans le développement ,

Finish

Pus court, amertume persistante prononcée .

Color
Auburn
Nose

Frais, herbacé, bourbonneux. De la rhubarbe, des agrumes. Sans oublier bien sûr la couche sherry, plus sage que pour le fût 72315. Moins brute, plus subtil.

Taste

Sirupeuse et sucrée (sucre candy). Du raisin, quelques gouttes de vinaigre balsamique. Légèrement surette.

Finish

Moyenne. Des épices douces, une légère acidité. Une sécheresse reste en bouche, et une amertume persiste.

Comments

Celui-ci est tout à fait convenable mais me plaît moins que le fût 72315 de par les côtés acidulés et amers présents.
