Longmorn 44 yo 1966 / 2011 The Dram Taker’s ‘Book of Kells’ Gordon & MacPhail for Limburg #281 43.1%

Oxidised apple sauce, spearmint, tinned pineapple slices and metallic hints of scratched copper dutifully polished to a shine. Undoubtedly complex, yet not entirely convincing at first go. Dusty lavastone pellets and a host of little dry medicinal-floral notes, like an ayurvedic medicinal herbal tea packaged for Waitrose. Some subtleresinous development as well and a little mustiness. Curious one, much in want of some verve, as if the whisky gods over did this one and the result is a little mushy.  88 pts

The terrain is awkwardly familiar. What happened to the juicy fruit or have we managed to bracket it squarely. Oxidised fruit, burnished metal, and this time the medicinal herbals – echinacea, cordyceps, dandelion and the like are greatly amplified. It goes off on a tangent now, with growing savouriness. The oxidised fruit return on the tongue, so apple, guava and cantaloupe left out too long, and a wave of earthy-resinous notes like black pepper, labdanum, pine sap, something carbolic and burnt branches. This ride’s a little bumpy. 86 pts
