Longmorn 1992 (Whisky-Fässle)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Longmorn

Longmorn 1992 is another one of these whiskies that we’ve seen very often lately. On Whiskybase there are +/- 30 expressions bottled in 2013 alone. I’m sorry but I won’t bother to try every sample I have as there are very little deviations.

 

 

Longmorn 1992 Whisky-FässleLongmorn 21 yo 1992
(51,1%, Whisky-Fässle ‘Ronny’s Choice’ 2013, bourbon hogshead)

Nose: rather typical Speyside / ex-bourbon combination. Garden fruits (apples, gooseberries, greengages) mixed with vanilla and touches of coconut. Hints of strawberry marshmallows after a while. A little mint as well. Mouth: full-bodied, fruity (oranges, apples, peaches) with the expected pepper / ginger combination of the white oak to muffle the sweetness a little. Faint grassy notes. Finish: medium long, still fruity (a little more on the zesty side now) with some citrus green tea.

Honest, well-made whisky. Maybe its only problem is that there are so many similar casks to be found so it’s difficult to understand why Ronny chose this particular version. Around € 80.

Score: 86/100

  • 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.
