From Whiskyfun.com

Colour: white wine.

Nose: oh, this is very different! Not a wham-bam Longmorn at all, rather an introspective, ultra-austere one – and we love this kind of austerity in whisky (the opposite of ‘modern’ whiskies if you see what I mean.) Ultra mineral (flints, pencil lead) and with a lot of oily hints (linseed, lamp, olive, graphite, kerosene). Develops on wonderful lemony notes that remind us of the best Rosebanks. Also hints of patchouli and sandalwood, very discrete but superb, and these faint metallic notes that are to be found in most old dumpies buy Cadenhead’s. Magnificent malt whisky.

Mouth: fan-tas-tic. Exactly the same notes as on the nose – please read above. Balance is perfect.

Finish: not the longest ever but what a marvellous cleanliness. Lemons and fresh almonds plus a little olive oil.

Comments: one of the best Longmorns I ever had, level with a 1972 at 50.2% by Kingsbury and a 1974 at 54.3% by McKillop’s. And soooo drinkable! (like most old Longmorns, that may be their drawback.) SGP:453 - 94 points.
