Longmorn 1992 (Malts of Scotland)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted 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: Benrinnes :-) although calling it one of Scotland's finest distilleries may be a bit too much. However casks from 2001 are being released, I've found
