The second one from the TWA Bottle-Share, and another oldie. This time a Longmorn, of which I usually like whisky from long ago, but not necessarily old. Let’s give this one a try and hope its better than the SMWS one I tasted recently!
Heavy from the very beginning. Its not all consuming but heavy. Quite thickly sherried but I got the idea this isn’t a typical Longmorn. Old tangerine, dry with a slightly chemical edge. It quickly opens up a bit more to release a lot more fruity aromas.
The fruits gets a bit fresher here. The heaviness is mostly gone and now I get fresh pear, chili pepper and apricot.
The finish is long and smooth with christmas cake, dried fruits, raisins and brown sugar.
This one had a bit of a difficult start, but in a weird way I like that. It focuses my thoughts on what’s in my glass instead of the telly. The fruitiness is very good and highly drinkable too.
