  1. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    What a sweet thing. I can understand why friends of this type of sherry barrel fillings so much love him in the glass. A bit too much of a good thing for me, but only as a purely subjective impression on the edge.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Very aromatic first contact, appears heavy and sherry-saturated. Cherries, blackberries, blueberries, plus old, slightly moldy wood, leather, crumbly dark chocolate, nougat.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Incredibly sweet and creamy. A cream and caramel candy with a strawberry and raspberry flavor. Nougat pralines, truffles, nutmeg and a pretty good portion of pepper. The berry mix of the nose here too.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium to long, still very sweet, slightly dry and very spicy with nutmeg, marjoram and tarragon.

    Nose: sweet and aromatic, rum pot with plums, dates and raisins, leather and tobacco, rock candy, nougat with milk chocolate, spiciness of cinnamon and cloves, a bitter note of walnuts

    Palate: Oily, sweet, sticky, spicy wood with cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg, rock candy and maple syrup, nougat, followed by the rum pot and walnut

    Finish: long, sticky, candy, tobacco and leather, plum, candy and maple syrup, wood spice with cinnamon, walnut

    Rating: a blatant ride over sticky sweetness (candy and maple syrup), full wood spice (cinnamon), nougat, tobacco and leather, bitter note of a walnut. It's never boring for a second. A whole corner too sweet for me personally, but it has much more to offer than just sweetness.

    89/100 or 7/10

    Very sweet, very spicy.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Very intensive. At the beginning cooling menthol and heavy eagle owl. But it evaporates pretty quickly. Sour cherry, black tea, balsamic vinegar, honey, caramel, light tobacco odor. Somewhat stinging. After a while, pear, fig and melon are added.

      I diluted it with 3 drops and it immediately becomes very present and clear, very nutty, walnuts, almonds, Turkish honey, cherries, currants, slightly mineral, bark mulch, milk chocolate, coconut (Raffaello)
    • Taste
      89 89
      Strong and intense. Tobacco leaves, tart chocolate, sticky honey, pepper, very light oak, sweet icing.

      Water doesn't change much, it becomes a little lighter and maybe even a little sweeter.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long, quite sweet and slightly spicy.

    blind tasting

    Soft nose, dignified, looks old. Spicy. The lovely dark, tangy forest honey makes another visit in the glass. Tobacco leaves and cinnamon. Almost a little restrained this nose? The alcohol is hardly noticeable. Old and rather weak in percentages? It smells heavy and sticky, a little sherry, a little cracked plums.
    I just have the feeling that I have something old in the glass. After a while there are more spicy-sweet sherry aromas and the dark forest honey shows up strongly. I often find something like that in old Glenfarclas?
    The taste is much stronger and the dark forest honey dominates, with cinnamon and leather. The prunes are also there, along with some liquorice and caramel. I still believe in an old sherry malt. Tickling the edge of the tongue shows a little more alcohol. The dram looks thick, sticky, almost like syrup or concentrate.

    My tip is a sherry Glenfarclas, if you tell the nose that it is rather old, you can almost feel a bit of youth in the taste. I'm a little unsure about that, but I'll say 20 years. 50% alcohol.
    I find the nose fascinating and the taste tasty.
    N-90, T-90, F-89 for a great 90 points

  9. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Part of a MoS tasting I had with friends.
    Sherried Longmorns, something that reminded us of the ‘96 Longmorns that vW bottled years ago (52033 for example). Although these were being highly appreciated by the others, it wasn’t completely my cup of tea. Obviously everyone was curious for this dram.
    • Nose
      This is a beautiful nose and despite of it’s sherry driven character it certainly is not a GlenSherry like the Miltonduff we had before this one. Lots of orange fruits, lychees and blueberry tea. And despite of it’s heavy and outspoken nose, there still is a lot of finesse in it.
    • Taste
      Initially a soft arrival but shortly after that a big alcoholic explosion. This desperately needs water. Neat we started feeling like dragons while exhaling. Lots of red fruits, sherry is dominant here. Also I get coffee beans. After water is being added, the true and complex body reveals and it gives quite an experience. It is rather comparable with Glendronach.
    • Finish
      Long and pleasing. A dry sherry profile is what boils up as well as dry nuttiness like in walnuts.

      I liked this a lot better then those vW bottlings I mentioned earlier. This one has much more to give but it is not a beginners dram. It is quite a puzzle to sort out all the layers it has to offer.

  10. RobbievdB scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nice older Longmorn that is worth deciphering his layers and aroma’s as it’s seriously complex with lots on offer. I got sweet and juicy orange & mandarine, a chocolates, marzipan and fudge combined sweetness, ground espresso, quality raisins & dates and Christmas spices. This whisky is a tad barrel dominant, but gives lots of sweets and a syrupy texture.

    What a blast! This longmorn convinces me with its powerful and complex sherry flavors. Complex and varied, that's why I love this kind of sherry bottlings. A fantastic malt, I like it very much!
    • Nose
      Dark and intense amber rests in the glass. On the glass wall of my Premium Snifter sticks in the upper part of an oily streak from the slowly dissolve long syrupy drops and pull their tracks into the glass. The high alcohol content of the first nosing stands out of the glass for a short while, then dark cherries and old leather aroma rise out of the glass. A few crumbs of dried tobacco spread on the old leather, creamy caramel and dark forest honey rise. Dried berries and grapes combine with almonds and velvety semi-bitter chocolate to create a wonderful sherry nose. Candied fruits and caramelized sugar give the dark fruits a sweet note, spicy wood tones provide a sharp contrast with leather and tobacco. Dates, raisins, sour cherries, strawberries, oranges and a hint of peach burn a true fireworks display. Gradually, the salivation is stimulated, I really want to wet my lips now with the Longmorn!
    • Taste
      Voluminous and powerful sherry aroma explodes on the first sip on the palate. Dark berries and cherries mingle with caramel and leather before suddenly spicy woodiness combined with black pepper surrounds the tongue. Powerful, the heat on the palate heats up, cozy warmth wrapped around the tongue. Dried raisins and dates merge with milk chocolate and freshly brewed espresso, rubbed by orange peel and sweet tobacco rest on the tongue. Herbs and spices come to light, resin and pine needles show up, leather and dark caramel revive the typical sherry flavors. Cherries and plums follow the oranges, and the warm, mellow, blurs the aromas in the mouth and slowly reverberate.
    • Finish
      Chubby was with slightly harsh hints of orange, leather and milk chocolate on the tongue. The mouthfeel becomes creamier and oily, cherries are clearly displayed. Spicy and slightly tart oak tones are distributed under the tongue, oily leather and burnt caramel are added. On the tongue is still a slightly sharp film, dark wood tones rise from the sharpness and end in freshly brewed espresso. Long linger the intense sherry aromas in the mouth, hopefully they never sound out!

    Blindtasting
    • Nose
      Strong sherry comes out of the glass. He also has cask strength. After giving him some time, a nice cherry jam comes to light. Serve with ripe plums, a little leather and caramel.
    • Taste
      Huih, the onset is fierce. The oak tingles on the tongue, then comes the cherry jam, marzipan, spicy, then oak again. With a few drops of water, the jam is rounded off with cherry cake, a little caramel and marzipan, and the tannins are less intense and the oak still tingles.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, beautiful espresso aroma with dark chocolate spreads, a little Mon Cherie, and again and again come the tannins.

  19. Gloin scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    The nose develops restrained and takes time to develop and recognize individual notes. After a while, classic sherry tunes develop. In the mouth, the whisky surprises with an overwhelming start, the mouth is briefly in flames. When the fire is extinguished, warm, sweet notes are left behind. The finish is very chocolaty. I do not know Longmorn well, but I suspect that there is not much left of the original character. However, what has come instead is convincing in its entirety.
    • Nose
      Dark cherries, Black Forest cherry cake, plums, black potting soil, all closely interwoven, it is not easy to identify individual notes, dry Oloroso, oak, the cherries remain present, Roibusch tea, a little sweet caramel
    • Taste
      Strong onset, astringent, the whisky glows on the tongue, then it is slowly getting softer, creamy body, suddenly really sweet, tender oak, sherry, herbs, a trace of sage, chocolate
    • Finish
      Lots of dark chocolate, oak, bittersweet, slightly astringent, warming, black tea, burnt sugar, medium length

  20. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Very well aged whisky, for me perfectly balanced between sherry barrel (barrel in general) and Brennereicharakter. Single Sherry Cask does not always have to be the same on the 12, the soft longmorn character and the sherry-soaked oak make for a really finely tuned mix. Chapeau, you East Westphalians, you're doing a damn good job over there.
    • Nose
      First: I love Longmorn. Funnily, only the independently bottled. After I had the benefit of various drams from the now iconic 1996 series by Signatory and could also try the 1992 copy of Wemyss (Persian Anise), had me the distillery. The old 16er OA, on the other hand, did not want to taste it for me and now they have been kicked off by their ambitious (due to the anticipation of what comes next, sometimes polite) pricing policy.
      Meanwhile, a good 30 minutes have passed, so the baby could wake up slowly in the glass - let's take a sniff.
      Color: I think it's against the late afternoon sun. Copper. Clearly copper. For pessimists vllt. dark amber. For me, copper. With beautiful red reflections.
      Nose: Yes, right there, but in contrast to the Secret Speyside without slamming one's nose. Candied pineapple cubes, heavily sweetened strawberry jam - a really nice game of sugary sweetness and fresh acidity. Dark syrup rises (together with this always cheeky tickling acid it could also be a good balsamic), warm porridge with cinnamon sugar. Now I mean to get the more tender notes for Longmorn. The grainy spicy porridge was almost the door opener on the flower meadow. Delicate vanilla blossom and the summer meadow with all kinds of flowers. Do you miss anything? Me too, looking at the label. Where are the 58.4 horses that he should have under the hood? Answer: not noticeable. Not really. No stinging in the nose, not even a bit.
      With water (he really does not need it, but I'll try it): Jaffacake (these orange biscuits with chocolate coating), a little less powerful, everything somehow more closely interwoven. The vanilla is still there, as well as the flowery. Something like fried banana with cinnamon and again the porride (Longmorn can not hide its malty).
    • Taste
      old. set. An absolute lady on the tongue, who knows how to behave. Immediately fruity dry, now I notice in the approach, the power that is in her. But it is nothing more than a brief glimpse, to the point the alcohol pushes the flavors forward without cheating itself past. The fruit dominates (fully ripe oranges), under the dark coating of caramel comes back to the fruity freshness. Oak spice? Yes he has. For 24 years, but surprisingly harmless, the barrel seems to have been extremely active here. The tannins complement each other with the sweet citrus fruit to a clearly definable blood orange. But I do not want to talk about bitterness. I get a few roasted pine nuts (roasted, not black in some places!), Then it flows down the esophagus in slow motion and ignites a pleasantly warm fire on the way. My whole mouth is occupied.

      With water: oily, creamy-buttery texture, less dry, now warms even stronger than before, the spice comes out stronger and lies down on the still noticeable sugary fruit.
    • Finish
      Long. Extremely long, he does not want to go down completely, I mean. Heavy and dull in the throat and cheeks.
