Connoisseur St. Pauli Tasting note

Color
Burnt umber
Nose

The colour makes you think this is an ultimate sherry bomb. At first nosing, it's not just overpowering sherry (luckily). Of course, some nutty and sweet (raisin) notes of a medium sweet sherry are there. Yet there is more: wood, spice (also from the wood), orange and apricot. After a while, treacle (Appelstroop from the Netherlands) shows. Behind this all, there is a gentle salty, beefy undertone, with old leather. 

Taste

It has a punchy, salty and beefy attack, with quite some pepper too. It's followed by orange, some dried fruit (mainly date), bitter chocolate and coffee. It's certainly earthier than on the nose, with tobacco. 

Finish

The finish is long, savoury, slightly sour (which is good), and medium bitter. There is pepper, date, raisin, dark chocolate and still some tobacco. Nicely balanced.

Comments

Compared this one with https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/43083/longmorn-1996-vw. This one seems to be a sweeter version. It is, but that's because the other is actually quite dry. Overall, this one is more complex, friendlier and fruitier.

Old oak
Nose

Coffee, orange, chocolate, mocca, cacao, fruity, balsmico and port. Syrup, woody, strawberry marmelade, cherries. With water more cherries.

Taste

Cherries, chocolate, nuts, syrup and fudge. A touch of sulphur, coffee, spices and earthy mushrooms.

Very long with forest fruits, spices, orange and cloves.

Comments

Blind tasting.

Color
Mahogany
Nose

Закрытый, сырой, холодный, слегка спиртуозный, первым носом минеральные тона, сернистые нотки, затем начинают пробиваться сухофрукты и изюм, изюма много, он практически осязаем - влажен и сладок, курага, тёплая, нагретая южным солнцем, ароматная, запах косточек кураги/ чернослива, повидло из чернослива, говядина тушёная с черносливом, ветчина, обработанная древесина благородных пород.

Taste

Плотный, насыщенный, сухофрукты во всём их разнообразии, дубовая горечь, умеренно сладкий, перечное жжение, подгоревшая карамель,

Finish

Древесно-карамельное на фоне сухофруктов и цитрусовых цукатов - корки апельсина, помело и грейпфрута в сахаре, имбирь, сливки, ириски, торт "Муравейник".

Comments

Отличный, плотный и концентрированный хересный монстр, живой, бодрый, аромат поначалу закрытый и скованный довольно скоро бурно раскрывается, отличный баланс, мощь и питкость. Хорошая работа с крепостью, также радует, что при обилии сладких составляющих молт не скатывается в приторную сиропность. Must have.

In my opinion casknr. 72323 and 105092 are the best of all Ultimate Longmorns.

I love all Longmorn Whiskeys from The Ultimate. I myself have 1 to 3 bottles of each cask and there are 8 different barrels. The Cask Strength Longmorn and Tamdhu are so far one of my favorites!
