  3. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A bit more reserved in the nose, then a strong spicy sherry-oriented malt in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Raisins, sweet and sour oranges, echoes of old dusty furniture
    • Taste
      Uh, first strong-spicy and the sour side of the orange. Over time he changes, with the second sip the sweet sides win. Add caramel and hints of vanilla.
    • Finish
      Here again the sweet oranges and ripe plums on the cheeks. The tongue is occupied by the spice, which almost turns into bitterness.

    More intense than my last Signatory Longmorn – which was to be expected
    from a first-fill cask this time around. I just adore these sherried
    Longmorns, because they are rather vibrant and also fresher compared to
    heavy-handed Glendronachs or Benrinnes. Of course I love both styles,
    but this side of sherry maturation is more easy-drinking. If you can
    find 16/17yo Longmorns from Signatory which come from first-fill sherry
    wood…. instant buy. You won’t regret it.
    • Nose
      A little closed off at first. Blood oranges, Bergamot oil, strawberries, and toasted oak.
    • Taste
      Incredibly full body at 43% ABV. At first it’s rather sweet, then
      somewhat citric, but heavy all the way with tons of vanilla and caramel.
      Sherry from an American oak butt perhaps?
    • Finish
      No bitterness whatsoever! More sweet oranges, ripe plums, and vanilla.
