  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    sherry "who is working", fir wood resin!
    • Nose
      intense scents on dust-free sherry, cooked fruit concentrate, stewed and annealed, sweet caramel, chocolate, cinnamon spices, some nutmeg,
      back of the wood and old leather salon
    • Taste
      creamy sweetness that explodes in the mouth, it is strong and intense, peppery spices appear, the fruits are this time well cooked on the apple, the grapes, the mures,
      the slightly varnished wood and the leather come back in the mouth to calm the first impression.
    • Finish
      Long, intense, charged

    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!

    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.
