    What a joy. The high alcohol content is not noticeable. Fruity, balanced and long.

  8. sagara-kun scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    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.

    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.
