Mostly citrusy, malty, vanilla and probably some apricots?

Simple but drinkable - may qualify as daily dram

Nose

verry sweet nose some sweet apple, caramel , and some butterscotch 

 oak together with  orange zest  in the background if you add a few drops of water lemon and some nuttiness appears the orange notes are much brighter now 
Taste

where is all the fruityness ?  oak, cholcolate ,pepper  , a hint of orange 

Finish

verry long finish i like it a lot but its a verry nutty taste at first that evolves into some sweet dark chocolate , with some orange notes 

Comments

you will recognize many orange notes in the smell in the taste in the after taste , but its also a verry complex whisky with many flavour profiles ,its a verry good whisky 87/100

Nose

La robe est or ambre, de belles jambes longues et grasses. Rapides, puis lentes. 

La goutte sur paume. Un malt frais et boisé, humide, les fleurs blanches et leur miel.

Le nez est très céréalier, un peu lourd, sur les fruits blancs, la poire cuite dans l'eau, l'aubépine et le miel de fleurs. Quelques agrumes Viennent rafraîchir le nez. 

Après une petite aération de 15 minutes, une belle ampleur vanillée et légèrement boisé qui est rapidement masquée par la pêche au sirop et les fruits secs et à coques. 

Un léger massepain en cette fin de nez.

Taste

La bouche est ample et généreuse. 

Le miel et les fleurs de cerisier aussitôt passé au silence par les céréales, puis un piquant chaleureux et poivré avant de goûter à la pâte d'amande amer, fruits à chair blanche et jaune. Petite redondance sur le bois jeune et la vanille Bourbon. 

La fin de bouche est résolument sèche sur la fougère, le pissenlit et son bourgeon ainsi que la réglisse amer. Chaque découverte aromatique est masquée par les céréales et les amers. Frustré.

Finish

La finale est moyennement longue sur les amers, le pissenlit et l'herbe tondu. 

Le verre vide porte sur la poire séchée, le miel cuit et les saveurs végétales. 

Comments

Un Longmorn végétal et fruité mais son orientation première tend vers les amers, pas en soit un défaut, seulement, ici les amers et le végétal masque le reste. Quel intérêt? Pas grand chose, surtout vue son prix... C'est frais mais pas assez équilibré. Nous sommes perdus. 

S'il fallait lui donner une note subjective, ce serait un 83.

Nose

Heavy. Sweet. Cake. Soaked fruit. Barley sugar. Hints of green herbs.

With water: Lighter, sweeter, icing sugar, cake, pineapple, vanilla. Nuts.

Taste

Hot and sweet arrival. Development is hot to bourbon and citrus fruit character.

With water: Sweet and light bourbon arrival. Development from light bourbon to definite bourbon; citrus sweet.

Finish

Long and warm finish of citrus and wood bitters.

Comments

Takes a little water and a lot of time. Less pronounced and complex as it was before. In relation to the price: disappointing. Time has not been kind to Longmorn.
