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

  • Basidium: I am partial to the Glencairn Crystal Canadian Whisky Glass as it is closer to what I am used to in a standard whiskey tumbler. It still narrows the t
  • Raphael: One similar to Bugatti, with bigger hips, would be the Eisch Jeunesse Malt-Whisky Glass. Quite elegant and not the cheapest one. Winner of the Whisky
  • WhiskyNotes: A Bugatti with bigger hips sounds very promising! Keep me posted, Bram.
