Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rich, rounded and fruity: stone fruits, dried apricot, sponge cake, sultana, coconut, privet blossom. In time a firmer note. Honey.
Palate: Gentle start. Great width and mouthfeel. Complex, hints of dried fruit, firm mature oak notes.
Finish: Zesty, complex.
Comment: The Longmorn bandwagon rolls on. Good to see Chivas coming to its senses - but we want more!
8.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fragrant. Clover, honey. Buttery and fruity. A touch of pepper and saddle leather, then vanilla.
Palate: Sweet, then a burst of spices. Ginger, oak, nutmeg. Fizzy mouthfeel. A distant smoky note.
Finish: Long, warm and dry.
Comment: Maybe not as balanced as the classic 15 year-old. But who would turn one's nose up to a Longmorn? So rare, so satisfying. Yummy.
