Complex, as Longmorn always is, but I wonder about the cask.
The Cooper's Choice
1975, 27 Years Old
Nose: Chocolate biscuits. Coffee grounds. At the bottom of the cup. Someone smoking a cigar. Leather armchairs. The smell of newspapers.
Palate: We are in a coffee house in Cracow. The cakes are slightly stale, but we love being here.
Finish: Slight acidic sharpness. Like a fruit vodka.
Comment: Complex, as Longmorn always is, but I wonder about the cask.
Nose: Some dunnage warehouse notes with fruit cake, sultana, clove, mandarin, a hint of smoke.
Palate: Ripe, full and fruity. A sweet mid-palate: soft fruits, tinned peach. The wood is firm wood, but there's sufficient sweetness.
Finish: Orange pekoe tea.
Comment: Another fine Longmorn. Chivas, please do something with this gem.
