SMWS 7.58 – Longmorn

Oooh! Longmorn. For some reason this got me excited. There are many great Longmorns around, although they usually are from a couple of years (or decades) before I was born. This one is from 1990, so not quite that old, but we’ll see where it takes us!

Slightly smoky is my first thought. Odd, but nice… Quite complex with bread, cereal and banana. Also a slight hint of liquorice.

Again liquorice but with fruit. Orange, vanilla, with a sweet full flavour. Slightly spicy.

Again, rather sweet and not really long. It fades quickly and doesn’t do much for me, flavourwise.

Meh. Not such a great one. I liked the start of a slightly smoky haze, but now I’m thinking my glass might not have been clean enough šŸ˜‰ Its called ‘Mandarin dreams and marmalade heaven’, but I can’t make anything of that. Its not a bad whisky, but it simply doesn’t get me jiggy.

SMWS 7.58, Mandarin dreams and marmalade heaven, Longmorn, 19 years old, 51.4%, February 1990 to 2010. Available at ā‚¬96 per bottle.
