  1. Gonathras did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Longmorn 1973/2005 (56.2%, Gordon & MacPhail, cask #2198, First Fill Sherry Butt)  Colour: full amber. Nose: once again, this is very punchy but it’s the sherry that plays first parts. Milk chocolate, burnt bread, cappuccino and wood smoke, then mushrooms and even the noblest of them: truffles. All that is very nice but once again, the distillery’s trademark fruitiness doesn’t quite manage to shine through. With water: well, there are more fruits but also a little too much wine, or say a vinosity (with its banner-bearer blackcurrant jam). Other than that it’s fine sherried Longmorn. Mouth (neat): dry oloroso at full speed. Need I tell you more? A little ‘too much’. With water: it’s good, it’s okay, it’s pleasant. More fruit jams but also a little too much drying-ness. Finish: long, both dry and fruity. I know… Comments: perfectly good old whisky but G&M had dozens of old Longmorns that were much superior in our opinion. SGP:361 - 84 points.
