Whisky Reviews for Longmorn 1992 SMWS 7.146

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.31 points

  1. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Fine example of Longmorn if not lacking a little something special.
    • Nose
      Waxy orange peels, sweetening with time with lots of fizzy orange. Picking up some herbal notes, floral notes as well, rose water
    • Taste
      Tangy oranges, orange sherbet and fizzy lemon drops. Getting darker, gaining woody notes, wood spice coming, cinnamon and ginger. Tangy orange hanging on.
    • Finish
      Medium finish, soft woody notes with a slight orange peel tang. Some touches of herbs in there.

  4. mandragoru did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes:

    What a wonderful complex nose neat; plums preserved in brandy, poached pears in sweet wine, cherry liqueur filled truffles and Dominosteine (layered gingerbreads with apricot jelly, marzipan, cloves and cardamom glazed in dark chocolate). On the palate, sweet, thick and luscious with plenty of flavours of orange liqueur, fondant and Jaffa cakes but also pleasant sweet deeply charred wood in the finish. With a drop of water more orange aromas were showing up; freshly juiced, sherbet, candied and zest and even in a hookah shisha flavoured tobacco. The taste now velvety, silky smooth as well as creamy with a surprising mint julep sweet tea finish.

    DRINKING TIP: Playing Dominos by an open fire
