  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Spicy whisky. Not easy to decipher, but very intense and delicious.

    [August, 2004]  Finally I emptied a bottle that I bought for 28,50 Euro in May, 2004.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 85.  I took no notes.

  5. Waykid scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    It is really pleasant enough, one of these summery, very light ones.
    • Nose
      Flower meadow and dry hay, some arrak-punch, chlorin. Then same peaches, chamomile and honey.
    • Taste
      Initially raw bananas and nectarines and some grassy overtones, bitterish. The bitterness stands down with some time in the glass leaving some black tee though, honey and chamomile also here. Rather nice, very mellow.
    • Finish
      Pleasant, malty hay and honey.

  6. Ras Mazunga scored this whisky 84 points Super Administrator

    Nothing special here but good enough. Suprised by the peat I smell here.

  9. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    In fact, one of my favorite allday drams. Fruity, malty, round. The way a Speyside whisky should taste for me.
    • Nose
      Malt, exotic fruit, apples and sherry. Creamy butterscotch caramel, vanilla, caramelized orange in honey. Intense fruity and sweet. A touch of oak.
    • Taste
      Soft and malty in the mouth. Again fruit, orange and apricot, then stronger spices and oak. Some sherry and dark chocolate in the background.
    • Finish
      Long and warm, accompanied by bittersweet orange, dark espresso and chocolate. At the end malt follows again.

  10. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A 12 Year Old whisky is often thought of as an entry
    level malt or standard stuff. This Longmorn is an exception to that rule.
    Terrific stuff! Around 40 EUR, which really is not expensive.
    • Nose
      The nose is fresh and very aromatic with mostly
      oranges, prunes, pink lady apples and almonds, the whole covered in a thick
      layer of honey. Hints of orangettes. Mildly floral. Think buttercups.
    • Taste
      Medium body and wonderfully soft on the palate. Orange
      cake, softly burnt grain, orange blossom honey. A nice whiff of smoke. The
      buttercups return. Some figs join is, as does a hint of banana. It is even a
      bit rum-like.
    • Finish
      The finish is almost long, with more honey and spices,
      ending in a mildly drying note.
