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!

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

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

Finish:
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😉 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.
