  1. eleiko5 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Longmorn 32 yo 1976 (54,7%,
    Whisky-Fässle 2008, bourbon hogshead)

    Nose: starts slightly less tropical than the Thosop version. More mineral notes, more lemon as well. Oranges as the main element, although the gooseberries and apricots show up after some time. Big waxy notes. Not unlike some Clynelish. Mouth: very fresh and citrusy, plenty of tangerine and grapefruit (both pink and yellow ones). A bit of roasted maltiness as well. Not much oak and less spices than the other releases. Almond notes. Not the most complex Longmorn, but the lack of oak makes it very very enjoyable. Finish: long and citrusy with a tad more oak now.

    It would be interesting to make a grid of these Longmorn 1976’s. You could order them by vanilla / honeyed notes (with the MoS leading the pack) or by tropical fruitiness (Thosop) or by waxy minerality (Whisky-Fässle). They’re all very good so in the end it comes down to your personal preferences.

    Score: 90/100

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2013/longmorn-vier-alte-ue-30-abfuellungen-von-gm-wm-spirits-und-whisky-faessle-27798/ Color: golden corn
    Nose: Salty lemon and orange flavors, candle wax, smoke and roasted aromas with vanilla, honey notes (with a slightly pungent citrus note) and fresh herbs.
    Taste: Again oranges and lemons, tart almonds, becoming resinous and smokier, with malt, vanilla, herbs and some gum.
    Finish: Long, with lemongrass and grapefruit, some salt, almonds, slightly bitter lemon balm and again this light gum note.
    86 points (nose: 89 / taste: 84 / finish: 85)

    This one needs some time and warmth in the glass to develop its full range of aroms.
    • Nose
      Fruits, some berrys, roasted aroms in the background, warm
    • Taste
      at the beginning very comes a short spot of fruits, then malt, roasted aroms, little wooden note, crispy, almonds, good middle-weighted body, fiery
    • Finish
      more wood, some bitterness, smooth roasted malt aroms, almonds, quite long
