Longmorn 19 Year Old 1992 [cask 71768] (Berry Bros. & Rudd)
46% ABV, £67.45 for 70cl
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.
What I say:
Perfumed roses, cereal barley malt, heather honey, sweet and fruity, peach melba, apple and vanilla custard
Smooth pureed apples and pears, cereal barley malt, malted milk biscuit and white chocolate buttons, a hint of grapefruit pith and lemon Turkish delight, slightly drying
Drying and tannic, oaky wood with fruity honey overtones
Would I buy it:
Yes, this is another fine example from Longmorn Distillery bottled by Berry Bros. & Rudd.
