LONGMORN 1992 - ARCHIVES BATCH 3

Many a Speyside whisky anorak has the hots for this distillery - incl. myself...
Some pretty good older sherry matured stuff has come out from bottlers like G&M, though old stocks seem to be dwindling at an alarming rate... not just because its old, but its also pretty tasty ;-)

Lets see how this 1992 fares:

Longmorn 1992 19yo xx.10.1992/xx.05.2012 ex-bourbon cask#86607, 48,5%, Archives

Golden straw in colour

Nose:
Malt, vanillas, white fruits with a hint of pear is dominant. After a few minutes it turns to a more orangy note, but the malt is still very much in charge leaving a chocolaty maltiness in the empty glass.

Taste:
Firm malt led by spices and a good measure of wood.
The whole thing is maybe a little too spice led and the spirit on top seems a little hot.
This Longmorn seems to be maybe a tad simple, but its still very drinkable with its citrussy finish.

83/100!
