The Ultimate – Longmorn 1996/2013 #72319


From the Ultimate line of independent bottlings comes a lovely Longmorn expression. Distilled on 01/05/1996, matured in sherry butt #72319 and 600 bottles bottled on 23/07/2013 at cask strength 57,2%.

On the nose I find notes of cherry, vanilla, raisin, plums, dried fruits, wood, heavy sweet tones, vanilla pipe tobacco, warm spices. Fruity sweet notes like kiwi, red berry, strawberry, red apple, pineapple, orange and some lemon.

Palate is full of spices, warm notes, creamy, honey, orange, fruity, vanilla, warm red fruit, peach, raisin, cherry, plum, figs, coffee, dark chocolate and a bit tobacco. A full and thick body. Finish is long and sweet with creamy vanilla, fruity. Ends a bit in a coffee and chocolate bitter but sweet mix. Scoring me an 8 out of 10. A beautiful thick whisky, very nice!
