This is my first Longmorn. Giving the fact that not a lot of longmorn official bottling exist, it is not a surprise. What was a surprise is how distinct this speysider was. First sniff...alcohol, this thing is "only" 48%. I say only because I have cask strength whisky that do not hurt the nose as this dram does.
When used to it, apple and honey starts to come out of the fog. a little bit of water brings this baby to life... Definitively honeyed apple, but with spices, toffee and nuts. Palate: dry fruits going on oaky notes going on fresh grassy notes. Finish: very green fresh grass. special... The dram is developing over time. Is it birth of true love, maybe not, but I would be very interested to try some other expressions from independent bottlers. It is far more than just interesting !
