  1. LukasJakubDrabek scored this whisky 85 points Moderator

    A fruity Speyside classic that doesn't help much with the addition of water. For a very long time I tried to find my way to it and at the same time understand Ralfy's enthusiasm for Longmorn 15yo. Even a few years since its opening, it did not help her much to make a significant change.

    My bottle has the printed code 2005/08/16 13:38. Then something like LR3065x. Apparently bottled in 2005.
    • Nose
      Yellow fruits, floral aroma, leavened dough, wax, walnut and flower honey. Then vanilla rolls or vanilla sugar and sugar icing.

      After adding water, the smell is rather muffled.
    • Taste
      A plethora of fruits: dried apricot, tangerine, white grapes, mirabelle, white currant. Oatmeal. Boiled almonds, cashew nuts and marzipan. A little yolk cream.

      After adding water, the taste is significantly rounded. Even more almonds and citrus freshness.
    • Finish
      Lemon peel, white wine and yeast. Bitterness of yellow grapefruit and grape tassel. French mustard. Cherry or apricot stone. Vineyard peach.

      With water: lemon jelly, lemon pulp.

    Classic Longmorn - complex, balanced and with a lot more age than just 15 years old.
    • Nose
      Grapes with thick skins and plenty of tannins. Malty over notes with chocolate powder from the top of a cappuccino. With time there’s green apple and honey. Some old dunnage warehouses and wet bung cloth.
    • Taste
      Honey sweetness, juicey green apple on the sharp and sour side. Warm arrival of cinnamon spice and a touch of oak. Hints off tannings and grapes.
    • Finish
      Drying oak leaving a nice gentle spice and touch of those red grape skins.

  7. uap304 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Beautiful nose and understated palate, but spoiled by a rancid finish. Getting more complex as you progress through the bottle, which was corked incidentally. It is complicated and challenging, and speaks to the likely presence of older casks in the mix, as mentioned by others. Honestly it's a malt I "appreciated" more than I enjoyed.
    • Nose
      Sweet, honey, musty malt. Marzipan. A suggestion of sherry sulfur. Sherry, chocolate, orange, citrus, honey, apples, floral, caramel, and vanilla cola.
    • Taste
      Full and thick. Quite malty. Honey, apple pie filling, spices, and mild sherry. There is some heat. Fruits coming into play, with apples and pears, and some vanilla cream. Floral, turning flat and bitter.
    • Finish
      Malt. Sharp and explosive, but smoothing out. Stale grains and grasses, turning to bitter oak. Hot and peppery with cinnamon and spices. Then sweet fruit in the background and savory overtones. Ending with sulfury sherry tannins, which become stronger as the dram continues.

    Lacks a bit of oemph, abv a litle bit at the low side at the taste level. Finish long, but very spicy.
