A 2002 16 Year single cask of Longmorn, bottled at 55.3% after maturing in Bourbon Barrels. It is better priced than the distillery bottling, bottled at a higher proof, and far more interesting.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: bam, fruit bomb: cherries leaping out of the glass, jammy with berry fruits, strawberry puff candies and Twizzlers; cream soda and French crepes with powdered sugar and lemon juice.
Palate: big, honeyed and fruity with rich spices; the whisky comes at you and keeps growing; crisp malt, Manuka honey and flowers in a botanical garden; more cherries, lemon juice, waxy Twizzlers and jammy berry fruits; the spices are firm: angelica, cardamom and fennel.
Finish: medium-long, drying with fading honey, fruits and spices; pleasantly warms the palate.
Comment: Longmorn is not a single malt we see a lot of, with the exception of Gordon Macphail and the Scotch Malt Whisky Society; this is a lovely malt; honeyed, fruity and spicy; a good warm you up dram on a cool fall night or after a vigorous thunder storm.
