    I dont know why Jim Murray rate this 93 point, but i have to say i am a bit disappoint on this one. for this price (i paid about 10 euro for a 15ml dram) it lack of complicity.

    Wonderful example of how good Longmorn truly is.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Juicy red apple, fresh berries and juicy grapes. Natural vanilla and vanilla root, a subtle creaminess on old oak and some tannings.
      Also some notes of old whisky showing.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Oily and creamy, very thick with baked apples, stewed pears, and a touch of red grapes. Soft wood notes add a gentle spice.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long and gentle, lingering forest fruits and long wood spice.

    N: More refined than the Rothes WB. A dryish though also hugely squidgy fungal sweet malt with sweet tyres [though this could be from the previous Glenrothes of course]. Good good, either way.
    T: Dark & deep woody fruits and steeped vanilla indicate this is an old, deeply matured 23yo - not many tired refills here.
    F: The squidgy malt never gives up being, er - squidgy.
    C: Very good but not perfect. £450 for a bottle i’m told, blimey! Wouldn’t you want more perfection for that price?Scores a B

  5. TomP scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Tasted this yesterday at the Whisky Festival Gent for 5€ so I can't see why this should go for 1,3k €..

    Haven't seen it in any shop either...

  6. Bretorianer did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The price tag is more than a joke in my opinion! Do they think all whiskylovers are...

    official notes

    Nose: Soft vanilla fudge and creamy caramel, dipped in milk chocolate and honey
    Taste: The taste leads with ripe pears and sweet red apples interlaced with tantalizingly spiced ginger cake
    Finish: An exceptionally long and velvety smooth
    finish. A fitting reward for the patience and perfection that its
    founder put into its creation.
