What I say
The second in our duet of Longmorn expressions was this 23 year old, distilled in 1991 and bottled by Carn Mor as part of their Celebration of the Cask range. Distilled 30/04/1991 and matured in a Hogshead until bottled 02/02/2015.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Dark yellow gold (9/20), thin legs and fine tears.
- Nose: Fruity, greengage, apple, galia melon, kiwi and a hint of pineapple, sappy and resinous, cedar wood, floral, herbal, ginger and baking spices, very green – like a frogs’ pocket.
- Taste: Green apple, sherbet, quite sour like bramley or cooking and granny smith apples, bittersweet, cedar wood, herbal rosemary, rosemary and apple jelly, floral honeysuckle, resinous wood, pine and oak.
- Finish: Medium-long, sweet and woody sugars.
An unusal old Longmorn, very fruity but also herbal and resinous wood influences from the cask, a real delight.
