    Not Bad but certainly not worth 150+€. Thanks but no thanks.

    Tasting Notes from Serge Valentin (whiskyfun.com):

    Colour: white wine.

    Nose: as naked as possible, this baby’s got neither vanilla nor any other kinds of ‘oaky’ aromas. So it’s more or less barley eau-de-vie, with a lot of, well, barley, touches of moss, fern, tiny-wee touches of compost, apple peelings and gooseberries. Add to that a few floral notes, a little patchouli, pot-pourri, roses… And that’s it. Interesting.

    Mouth: same flavours, that is to say many apples and gooseberries, plus some lemon and lime. Add a spoonful of honey, a drop of amaretto and a little sugarcane syrup. Maybe a pinch of white pepper…

    Finish: quite long, very zesty. Almost Littlemill-zesty, in a way. A little horseradish in the aftertaste.

    Comments: as I said, this is interesting. Fully time-matured, and certainly much to my liking, even if it wasn’t totally heroic.

    SGP:641 – 87 points.

    Tasting Notes from Mark Watt (WM Cadenhead):

    Nose: Juicy fruits, lots of apple and pear notes. Nose takes time to open up.

    Palate: Old fashioned Speyside whisky, spice, toffee, dark fruits along with bombay mix.

    Finish: Very long, spicy with honeycomb and more dark fruits coming through.

    A very interesting and very mature whisky. If it wasn’t for the slightly disappointing finish, this would’ve approached the nineties.
    • Nose
      Very sweet and fresh with notes of honey, grass, barley and cotton candy. It’s a bit soapy but not in a bad way! After a while a lot of orange start shining through.
    • Taste
      Perfectly balanced! The orange aroma translates into plenty of orange flavours, also some coconut and a bit of honey and pepper.
    • Finish
      Not as long as I hoped for, because the nose and taste of this Longmorn is fantastic. There’s some vanilla in the finish, together with barley. But it dies down too quick.

    Great older Longmorn.
    Currently with the oldest on the market and although not cheap, at the current Longmorn prices it is almost a bargain.
    Very round, soft, balanced and complex mixture of light and dark fruits, spices and herbs, Bourbon Cask influence with vanilla and toffee, something like mint, Mediterranean herbs and more oak wood spice towards the finish.
    Very tasty and elegant.
    Still full-bodied and quite intense.
