Thoroughly enjoyed this one after the cork crumbled before eyes upon opening, highly recommend others to be very careful opening this one ...

C: Following on from the excellent Craigellachie 23yo WB, this is also very good. A sadly missed standard expression.

Nose

Green and yellow fruits, kiwi, gooseberry, white currant, notes of white wine and grass. It's quite dry with sweet sugary reflexes.

Taste

Mildly flavoured, rather waterish. Sugar, white flowers, malt, a touch of oak. Nothing too distinctive, a sof all-rounder.

Finish

Short, delicate sweetness turns into bitterness of wood and spices.

Comments

A nice (former) core range expression, but nothing more than that.

Nose

Fresh and grassy, with ample vanilla, grass, mint at the first encounter. There is also a nice citric fruitiness, a hint of peach and pineapple. There is soft spice too, such as mainly cinnamon. 

Taste

Quite soft and oily, with a gentle pepper kick. It's more on dried fruit now, but the freshness is still there. The spice becomes more dominant too, which is a good thing. 

Finish

Moderate, slightly nutty, but mainly spicy with still some freshness of orange juice.

Comments

For a (former) standard bottling, this is quite good stuff!

Cheers! Paul

Soft and fruity nose (a real mixed fruit bowl including tropical and orchard fruits as well as some citrus notes), with a hint of sherry casks giving rise to nutty notes and some grassy notes added to the mix when water is added. A spicy and slightly bitter note dominates the palate, with the fruits struggling to be heard. Medium-length slightly bitter finish too. Nice nose then, but slightly more challenging and less 'easy' on the palate.

This was a nice present from a good friend in 2003 when I retired. He was so right and I regret I didn't buy more of these bottles. It was a very good dram for a reasonable price. For the moment and a few hundred drams later my taste goes out more to the whiskies of Islay.

Nose

At first rather alcoholic, then sweetness. This needs air, badly! Now there are rummy notes – demerara sugar, tropical fruits (classical Longmorn distillate – citrus and ripe oranges), as well as saw dust. Less complex than I expected.

Taste

Sweet, caramelly, toffee, and a slight sharpness. Bright fruits – pears, apple compote, pineapple. Mentholated cappuccino and tannins.

Finish

Medium. Oak-forward, with more sweet caramel and honey.

Comments

To be honest, I had high hopes for this one. Its brilliance shines through on the nose (with time to breathe), but all-in-all an ordinary bourbon-matured malt without any edges.
