Longmorn 1964 James MacArthur 57.5% vs Longmorn 1976 James MacArthur 54.7%

Longmorn 1964 James MacArthur 57.5%

Old Longmorn is usually fabulous, but I haven’t had much luck with this bottler’s minis. So, disappointing again. A musty sort of whisky with cooking oil, scratched copper and thick coagulated honey. Maybe something of cooked apricots in sauce but also a touch of vegetable broth. Fruit is clearer on the tongue but it’s not helping. Why is this a profile so similar to other James MacArthur miniatures, did the person choosing the casks love musty cooking oil? 83 pts

Longmorn 1976 James MacArthur 54.7%

Better. Hay, dried earth, pulled roots left in the sun, hot caramel and patchouli? Even a little phenolic in the most clean way possible – Clean rubber and washed shovels maybe. Dried branches destined for kindling, leathery tree resins. Some interesting facets but just not put together very well. Also disintegrates into a hot bitter sludge on the tongue.  85 pts
