Whisky Reviews for Longmorn 1990 vW

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.39 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Delicate and noisetté, it evokes Clynelish by its waxy side. Not very expressive at first, we have apple, then it opens, with a more fragrant side, vegetable, flowery, creamy. It is the delicacy that prevails.
    • Taste
      Well spiced, a little aggressive at first, it is more than 46%. Some fruits and flowers.
    • Finish
      The opposite of the mouth: soothed, sweet, nutty, but nevertheless spicy and woody.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 4/5
      Mouth and finish 3/5

      Whisky n ° 1955

      It starts of with some apple but after about 15 minutes in the glass it opens up very nicely. Cereal and malty notes appear and some custard and vanilla. It is a nice start

      More of the good stuff. Where definitely at a bakery. Bread dough, cereals, malt, some yeast. A drop of lemon zest not much but it makes it fresh. Waxy and more vanilla and custard cakes.

      Good finish, malt notes and custard. Love this one.

    • Nose
      First impression: apples. Be patient and give it some time. Then next to melted honey you can find waxy and grassy aromas. After a while more spices (nutmeg, white pepper). Some dusty attic. Very enjoyable malt.
    • Taste
      creamy, semi-sweet. Smooth oakiness, apples with honey, some bitter orange peel and ginger. Waxy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      boom! powerfull but pleasant. Peppermint, some tobacco, maltiness and apples. Some tannins but they don't spoil the whole thing. Definietly long finish. Really nice Longmorn.
