Longmorn 19 Year Old 1992 [cask 71768] (Berry Bros. & Rudd)

Score: 87/100

BBR 71768

What they say:

filtered at 46% ABV. Produced near Elgin, this malt whisky is highly respected for its smooth, complex full character and heady bouquet. The primary aromas give yellow fruit skins and honey. There is some underlying spice to enliven the nose. The palate offers a creamy texture with abundant fruit and some white chocolate notes, again cut by the spice.
