    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    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.

    A truly great Longmorn, easily the best Adelphi have bottled and it has an interesting story. There are two versions of this Longmorn available. If you live in Australia it is available as an exclusive bottling for the Oak Barrel retailer (1 of 102 bottles) but the Oak barrel didn't buy the entire cask so the rest of it was bottled as an Adelphi Selection release of 256 bottles. These two bottlings are the same whisky, same abv (the Oak barrel list the whisky as 52.4 but it is actually 52.1), same age, same cask etc. and if you have access to either I'd recommend buying it.
    • Nose
      Rich, clean sherry loaded with raisins, toffee, fudge, stewed apples (maybe toffee apples?) oranges and lemons, almonds and hazelnuts, and just hint of coffee.
    • Taste
      Sweet sherry start which turns pleasingly dry. Fruity on the arrival but then fudge, lashings of toffee, and trifle or maybe tiramisu, almond paste, chocolate and assorted spices. An after dinner whisky if ever there was one!
    • Finish
      Long, dry, chewy toffee, almond paste, marzipan and slightly coffee (rich freshly roasted coffee)
