    Tasting Notes by Whiskyfun.com (April 7, 2014):

    Colour: gold.

    Nose: we’re not too far from the style of the Longmorn 18 yo (57.8%, The Whisky Exchange, Whisky Show 2011), except that this one’s superbly polished, without having lost any zesty fruitiness. In fact it starts a little simple, on apples, oranges and just a little beeswax, but then it starts to rise and rise and rise, gaining complexity through many tiny aromas, most being of the waxy/oily kind. Pollen, more beeswax, old Sauternes, plums, cigarette tobacco, wax polish, wild flowers, touches of Barbour grease and shoe polish… With water: a leafiness is coming out. Some mint, incense, sandalwood…

    Mouth: really big, starting with quite some pine resin this time, eucalyptus drops, then we have apples, especially small dry ones (calvados apples), oranges, grapefruits and only small amounts of honey. Also fresh almonds. It’s quite superb and incredibly tense, almost young in fact. With water: sacrebleu! It’s now almost the same whisky as The Whisky Show’s 18yo. Big, big fruits.

    Finish: long, fruity and resinous. Did this baby age in pinewood?

    Comments: lovely old Longmorn that tastes young. Could be an Hollywood actress, in a way… Ha!

    SGP:561 - 91 points.
