  2. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    a solid and successful malt
    I like him
    Easy drinking malt
    at ~ 50 € a good PLV
    the light notes dominate at the beginning (you might think a couple of bottles of sherry would have just stood next to the barrels). Later, the dark notes come from the sherry barrels.
    • Nose
      starts thin, pear, light sherry, light raisins, vanilla and becomes more, malt, light red berries, light lemon / orange? j, green leaves from the tree, fresh, grassy
      later hairspray ?, lots of toffee, red apple
    • Taste
      soft, silky and creamy on the palate
      Shortbread, caramel / toffee, vanilla, good malt, light oak becomes more, more spicy
    • Finish
      short to medium long
      very sweet becomes tart, slightly sherry, dark malt, a bit tingling

  4. Highlander65 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    Scent of ripe and sugary fruit, a little marzipan. On the palate it is smooth and delicate, less sweet than on the nose and with a bitter finish, I would say of bitter almonds. Pleasant and drinkable whisky, not very complex

  5. OKN scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Light colour. Weak nose with some malty flavours, vanilla and some green fruits. The palate is pleasant but rather short with some spice and tropical fruits. Short to medium finish.
    It is a very inoffensive whisky, but with no bad elements. Picked it up for about 27 € and for that price, it is decent value.

  9. vojt466 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    So the first meeting with the Longmorn distillery did not work out any great
    • Nose
      Hardly sweet - apple compote, raisins, dried figs, slightly plum compote in the background, which gradually grows, wax
    • Taste
      Again sweetness - dried fruit, raisins, caramel, vanilla, milk chocolate, light spice - it's such a flat
    • Finish
      In the reverberation of caramel with a bloom of citrus fruit and the end of a light spiciness - the reverie is short

  10. p4blo scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Not very distinctive and not worth the money, worse than 80% of the core ranges on the market.
    • Nose
      Virgin oak and faint bourbon cask influence all the way. Vanilla, coconut, varnish, sugar and a touch of pineapple.
    • Taste
      Quite oily, but rather flat. Sugar, apple, vanilla and malt.
    • Finish
      Medium long, slightly woody with sugary sweetness and some spices.
