2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. fritzbrause scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This is probably the best Longmorn i ever tasted. Very balanced! Loads of fruit and malty sweetness. In a blind tasting the panel guessed this buddy with 25y and more. great stuff!

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Warm October glow
    Flavour: Spicy & sweet The nose had an earthy attractiveness – garibaldi biscuits,
    peanut cookies, pumpkin seed oil, cinder toffee, toasted coconut and dusted
    cappuccinos were all mentioned. With water, we found vanilla, stroop waffles,
    golden syrup and linseed oil – even a slight medicinal note. The palate
    contained something of a dichotomy – treacly, viscous elements were
    mouth-coating and weighty (manuka, malt extract, caramel, dry roasted peanuts,
    fennel seeds) – but it also had a watermelon, apple, citric and Shloer juice fizz
    going on. In reduction, the palate found a pleasing balance between pepper,
    almond, ginger and coconut woodiness, brown sugar and nougat sweetness and
    zingy lemon zest.

    Drinking tip: An early evening pick-me-up
