Longmorn 12 – Bladnoch Forum

I found this little sample sitting around my sample shelf and couldn’t find a review of it yet. Apparently, I am messing things up a bit in that department, since I was certain this had been reviewed about a year ago…

It is a bottling from the Bladnoch Forum, and I think it came with a set of samples from Eugene last year.

Longmorn 12 - Bladnoch ForumSlightly spirity and very, very malty. Regular malt, but also some green malt. It seems it was an overly active cask where this came from.

The taste is slightly dry and rather sharp. Hints of straw and wood and a some minor farm notes.

The finish is reasonably long and full, with cereal, icing sugar and some spices and herbs.

A very odd Longmorn, but that may be because they usually bottle from more active sherry casks than this refill bourbon cask. If I tasted this one blind, I would have said it was a Bladnoch. By that I mean the distillery, not the bottler. You don’t find many whiskies that are this malty from many other stills. Although it is a slightly ‘young’ whisky, tastewise, I do like it. The flavours are pretty nice and are very consistent.
