Time for another wee single cask tasting note and today : A Longmorn. Not enough of those i am afraid on the blog, and each addition to the category does make me feel happier. This one is a 20 year old cask, bottled NCF, no colour and at 55,5% abv, and not long ago won the Malt Maniacs awards bronze medal, which is a good sign, as those maniacs know their liquor. Took my some time to post notes for this one, and naturally it’s all gone (good single casks do not stay for long as we’re learned in the past). Let’s dive:
Nose: Ginger covered dried citrus peel, with a sweeter lovely malty backbone underneath. Lemon. Cucumber. Spice. Vanilla pods, a great combo of flavours,
Palate: Starts with black pepper, wood spice and vanilla , and continues to develop on the palate with zest. some Creamy stuff too, and nice spice.
Finish : Cereal. Caramel. Spice , rather nutty, and quite long.
Very nice stuff there, with a bit of an unexepected profile, but yummy in any way.Samples are still available at £4.95, so hop on the bandwagon if you feel like treating yourself to something nice, and interesting.
