[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.

There is no accounting for taste...

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.

Comments

It is really pleasant enough, one of these summery, very light ones.

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

Nose

Malz, exotische Frucht, Aepfel und Sherry. Cremiges Butterscotch-Karamell, Vanille, karamellisierte Orange in Honig. Intensiv fruchtig und sueß. Ein Hauch Eiche.

Taste

Weich und malzig im Mund. Wieder Frucht, Orange und Aprikose, dann staerkere Gewuerze und Eiche. Etwas Sherry und Bitterschokolade im Hintergrund.

Finish

Lang und warm, begleitet von bittersueßer Orange, dunklem Espresso und Schokolade. Am Ende folgt wieder Malz.

Comments

Tatsaechlich einer meiner liebsten Alldaydrams. Fruchtig, malzig, rund. So, wie ein Speyside-Whisky fuer mich schmecken sollte.

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.

Comments

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.

The full, juicy and
fruity aromas open and create immediately curious about the content, aromas of
apple peel and calvados with sugar and full tones of smoke and dried
oak.On the palate of citrus tones are
found together with dried, candied peel and hints of roasted cereal with orange
blossom honey. The finish is a beautiful and long duration with notes of
malt and orange blossom and honey, very tasty!
