Whisky Reviews for Longmorn 1970 SMS

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.35 points

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Quite herbal and dry, wood extracts and some new make spirits, lots of menthols and herbal syrup, apricot jam, and camphor.
    • Taste
      Lots of distillate character, pear, and apple, malt juice, not like a 36-year-old whisky, some artificial fruits flavors. Then more citrus fruits and waxy notes come out. Quite juicy and mouthwatering, nice.
    • Finish
      Orange candy, bitter wood spices.

    A super fruity nose, pink grapefruit, apricots and pears and a soft citrus which has a similar profile on the palate. Leaving a long lasting finish.

    Tasted at the Old & Rare Whisky Show 2021 in the Longmorn Masterclass, (Dram No. 4 of 6)

  3. hs305 scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    [2015]  I had this dram during a private tasting of whisky connoisseurs at Limburg.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 it 95.  I
    took no detailed notes as there were simply too many drams...  Every
    connoisseur brought several bottles from his collection to the tasting
    where they were lined up by common decision.  Just 1 cl was served as
    otherwise we probably would not have seen the end of the tasting without
    medical problems. As this was a flabbergasting event I list all the line-up and my resp. scores below:

  4. Master Quill scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It`s fruity, sherry allright, but not thick cloying Longmorn sherry monster. It`s elegant and oozes fruity oldness from late 60`s longmorn, although this is 1970. Still the hints of dark fruits are there, it`s a good Longmorn, but not quite there...
