    Whiskyfun said,

    Longmorn 1969/2009 (59.3%, Gordon & MacPhail Reserve for Japan Import System, first fill sherry, cask #5293, 405 bottles)  Colour: dark gold. Nose: exceptional nose, all on figs, raisins, leather, walnuts and cooked apples, with hints of black cherries and blackcurrant buds in the background. The sherry is fantastic but in no way in the rich oloroso style. With water: shifts towards capsicum and cardamom, becoming increasingly ‘Indian’. Popadums, korma sauce… Coffee. Extraordinary. Mouth (neat): it’s one of these rich and deep old Longmorns that G&M have been issuing since quite some years. Thousands of dried fruits (no need to list them all) plus some soft spices and rounding notes of vanilla fudge and cappuccino. Black pepper. Very high-end and incredibly drinkable despite its high strength. ‘Wow’.   With water: a liquid poem. Finish: interminable and amazingly complex. Comments: it reminds me of the Longmorn 1969 ‘Book of Kells’ for the Mash Tun in Tokyo, another Japanese wonder. Symphonic and supernatural (c’mon, Serge). SGP:652 - 94 points. (und Dankeschön, Carsten)

  2. sagara-kun scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Super good. Explosive mouth after classic nose.
    Rating given in 2016 (thanks Volanne): 94
    Rating given in 2017 (thanks TAA): 92 It seemed much more confitured at the first tasting.
    • Nose
      Older balsamic vinegar. Old leather, figs, dates Sweet cherries soaked in alcohol Very light caramel. Sherry quite classic and perfectly balanced. Not caricatural.
    • Taste
      Explosion of red fruits. Blueberry, strawberry, blackcurrant. Light woody and well done. Slight astringency not disturbing Dried fruits and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Final on the explosive fruit, then the noble woody takes over.

  3. Volanne scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Perfect
    old Longmorn if you ask me, given that you enjoy the spicy-jamy style.
    • Nose
      Yummy!
      Old Longmorn at its best. Starts with all kinds of precious woods (cedarwood,
      sandalwood) mixed with usual overcooking jams (strawberry, blackberry) sticking
      at the bottom of the cauldron. And something tarry (burning bark).
    • Taste
      Oak
      speaks louder now. Lots of spices (clove, cinnamon). Over-infused tea and the
      matching tannins. But the whole remains balanced and lively thanks to nice citrusy
      notes. Crystalized oranges. Old herbal liqueur. 59.3%? You must be kidding!
    • Finish
      Long and spicy.
