Nose

Honey, herbs and flowers. Lively and grassy to start, this offers a bouquet of garden-fresh aromas – heather honey, cut grass, nettles and flax – alongside some appealing fruit notes - ripe red apples and apple turnovers, peaches, gooseberries and grapes. There’s quite a look going on here behind the fresh and fruitiness – polish, marzipan, resinous sappy oak and some mild salinity. Water brings out some citrus notes and also reveals some cask influence in the form of ginger spicing.

Taste

A solid arrive offers a textural mouthfeel which has a certain oiliness. Dried spiced apples, orange and lemon peels meet very generous cinnamon and pepper spicing. Underlying maltiness shines through and is supported by grainy cereals, freshly toasted bread and brass polish. Woodiness is quite high, but again, quite sappy rather than old and tired. The addition of water softens the fruits and spices, but loses some of pleasant oomph they provide. Personally, I’d just go in at 45% on this one.

Finish

Quite long and quite spicy with ginger and pepper in the back of the palate. Slight bitter and tannic in places.

Comments

Longmorn 15 year old is exceedingly good, which makes its retirement all the more saddening. The nose is delicate but defined, the palate much more complex and powerful. Full-bodied, spicy and well worth seeking out.

"Poussière de bois" (Je me comprends), fruits frais, pelure de pomme. Le genre de profil que j'affectionne !

Taste

Léger et délicatement sucré, il est fluide et un peu acidulé...

Finish

...jusque dans la finale. 

Comments

A la fois simple et raffiné.

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.

Color
Pale gold
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
