Longmorn 1992 (Malts of Scotland)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Longmorn

There’s so many Longmorn 1992 on the market these days. It would be useless to review them all, differences are very small. Here’s one by Malts of Scotland, which released another one last year.

 

 

Longmorn 1992 Malts of ScotlandLongmorn 21 yo 1992
(54,2%, Malts of Scotland 2013, bourbon hogshead, MoS 13014, 224 btl.)

Nose: starts with a vigor that’s half spirity, half herbal (anise and ginger). Softens a bit on apples, greengages and light orange. Unripe banana. Fresh oak shavings. Seemingly less vanilla than there was in other versions. Mouth: again some fruity notes but the spicy and grassy notes are louder. Sweet citrus as well as more zesty notes. Plenty of liquorice. Quite some mineral notes too. Finish: medium long, with lingering wood and citrus.

Fresh oak, some fruits, plenty of spices… Modern whisky, good but not exactly exceptional. I prefer the previous Longmorn 1992 by the same bottler, which is still available by the way. The new one is around € 95.

Score: 83/100

  • WhiskyNotes: It says 'single cask Scotch whisky' on the label, so yes, technically it can even contain a bit of Girvan grain. Not that it matters a lot though.
  • kallaskander: Hi there, could be a teaspooned blenders cask... technically not a single malt then.... that seems more probable than letting an IB bring out the fir
  • Glenn Vanbellingen: If you put the 12 y origin at 40% head to head with the 12 y origin 46% you see it immediately or better you taste it immediately.
