MacLean and Bruce, Longmorn 30, 1992, Vol.1. Scotland, United Kingdom 70cl

Adelphi


30 Year Single Malt Whisky, 70cl. Speyside, Single Cask, No. of bottles: 153, Scotland, United Kingdom. 44.6% ABV. 

"Pale amber. Re-fill American oak hogshead. Slow-running thick legs, indicating viscous texture. A mellow nose-feel, rounded, and a complex aroma which combines sweetness (butterscotch), fruitiness (orange zest, ripe pears, ripe cantaloupe melon) and initial oiliness (teak oil - soon displaced by increasing toffee notes, now vanilla fudge), on a faintly woody base (balsawood?). The last is brought forward by a drop of water, and the oily note now polished leather. Mouth-filling and teeth-coating, with a creamy texture. The taste is sweet overall, with some lively pepper in the long, warming finish, and a cool aftertaste, reminiscent of Sichuan pepper. Less pepper at reduced strength and not so sweet, but altogether rounded. Longmorn is uncommon as a single malt, it has been described as ‘the master blenders’ second choice’ – the first choice being his own whisky! It is famously rich and robust, and benefits from long-ageing. This is a first rate example: full-bodied, complex (the aroma constantly changing in the glass) and wholly satisfying." - Charlie MacLean
