1 of only 256 bottles from cask no. 48436
One of a number of recent Longmorn casks from 1992. This one is from an ex-sherry hogshead, most likely European oak. A rich copper colour, with very good beading and a gentle, lingering mousse. Cake mix and brandy butter are immediately apparent, this turning to Panettone – sponge cake with dried citrus peel, raisins and almonds. Initially, very sweet to taste with a super-smooth texture, then mouth drying as the tannins kick in. A little water adds butter into the mix, now with almond oil. The taste is not quite so sweet but brings in a vivid memory of Victoria Sponge cake – full of strawberry jam, with cream on top. Hot wood and toffee flavours remain in the finish.
