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.

Nose:
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.

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

Finish:
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.

Longmorn 12, Bladnoch Forum, 25-11-1997 – 23-3-2010, cask #163303, 53.4%
