​Review #306 – Longmorn 36
Whiskey Network Review #306 | /r/Scotch Review #126 – The Perfect Dram 1975 (Longmorn 26yo) 101.2pf | 50.6% ABV

Proof: 101.2

Distillation Date: 1975

Bottling Date: 2011

Maturation: Ex-Bourbon

Bottle: One of 163

Source: /r/scotchswap sample

Nose: Toffee, cocoa, tobacco, vanilla bean and butter cream, faint jammy notes.

Taste:​ Medium mouthfeel, no heat, sweet and jammy, raspberries, vanilla, caramel, mild plastic note there but only faintly so.

Finish: Medium, grows a little hotter. Still sweet, sticky toffee and fruity galore. ​

Overall: Very enjoyable. Like a dessert toffee fruit cake. Yum. I liked this a lot and I can see why it was lauded. If there wasn’t that odd plasticy note it might have clawed higher but this was a great dram for sure, nonetheless. I’m giving it a Rank 7 to reflect that.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
