Nose
The colour of cough syrup. Dense and heavily sherried. Liquorice, black cherry, dried sloe, raisin, tomato puree, prunes in Armagnac and a distinct whiff of freshly-buffed shoes.
Palate
Balsamic. Tight, hard and tannic with lots of bitter chocolate.
Finish
Hard.
Comment
I'm the biggest fan of Longmorn but here the distillery's lost in an oak forest.

Nose
Obviously a very old fellow. Woody, musty, earthy. Damp warehouse. Walnut stain.
Palate
Extremely bitter. 99 per cent cocoa chocolate. Tobacco leaf. Wood, wood and wood.
Finish
Bitter, woody. Walnut stain.
Comment
More a liquid archive than a dram to enjoy. 46 years in cask have completely masked the distillery character. So difficult to score such a whisky. If it is based on the enjoyment scale, well, not for me.
