Review #306 – Longmorn 36
Whiskey Network Review #306 | /r/Scotch Review #126 – The Perfect Dram 1975 (Longmorn 26yo) 101.2pf | 50.6% ABV
Distillation Date: 1975
Bottling Date: 2011
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!
