Longmorn 17 Year Old Very Rare Limited Edition. Cask # 48430
Our overall comment on this malt is “a sunny day in the Highlands”.
This malt has a deep gold colour suggests that the ex-Bourbon hogshead it is drawn from is 1st fill.
Nose: Gorse flowers, macaroons and almond paste, with fragrant jasmine behind, some ash and after a while a little sponge.
Palate: Water intrduces a pine-like note,heather flowers, yielding to buttery tablet with mandarins. The latter gives a fresh acidity to the tastewhich starts sweet, but not cloying & drying elegantly to a medium length finish.
Finish: Well balabced & stylish.
