  1. Sjaunja scored this whisky 65 points Specialist

    Result of a blind tasting (held Dec10th 2013):
    65 participants rated this malt in a blind tasting with average 7,5 points out of 10.

    Average score over all ratings 2013 : 6,6 points. So 6,6 points are the median.

  2. OKoster scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

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

    I love all Longmorn Whiskys 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!

  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    It is quite aggressive and big, but also well-balanced (except for that dryness on the palate) and complex. Not for the faint of heart, but most sherry lovers will certainly appreciate this.
    • Nose
      A sherry bomb in the truest sense. Big on the dark chocolate, but also cherry syrup, ripe banana peel, and prunes. There's some powdered coffee too, as well as a touch of menthol and some furniture polish. Finally a whiff of soy sauce. A monster...
    • Taste
      Very dry, lots of tannins. But also aniseed, raisins, leather, cigar tobacco and milk chocolate. Big on the spices, with plenty of cloves and cinnamon. Subtle it isn't, but water isn't necessary per se. A few drops does make it slightly creamier though.
    • Finish
      Drying, with cough syrup, spices and raisins.

  9. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose : Heavy sherry nose. Dried fruits, prunes, nuts, milk chocolate, spices. Whiffs of coffee, citrusy notes and pine resin.

    Mouth : Punchy. A bit alcoholic. Very fruity and spicy. Milk Chocolate again.

    Finish : Medium, spices, chocolate.

    A very good sherry. Not complicated and flavory.

  10. tomy63 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    close to the barrel 72315, always a big sherry on chocolate and dried fruits, with a little more nuts and hazel here perhaps, and less well integrated alcohol.
