This is the standard bottling of Longmorn, replacing the old 15 Year Old since 2007.

The nose is rife with cookies, filled with fruit. Pears and apples, primarily. Very sweet with a bit of vanilla, some marzipan, malt and slightly oaky. But still, the nose is one-dimensional, with little depth.

It has a creamy mouthfeel and tastes quite spicy at first, with honey, raisins and nuts. The fruit from the nose returns. Silky soft!

The finish is lingering, dry and quite spicy. This is a nice, albeit complexless, summer dram.

I have always enjoyed the Longmorn 15 yr old expression. Its complexity made it one of my favorite speyside whiskies. I take it the 16 year old expression fails in comparison?

Will not buy the 16 as there are so many others that are in its price range that are superior drams. I have 4 bottles of 15yr old left and will be very sad when they are gone.

Thanks for the review
