Longmorn Tasting Notes
Duncan Taylor Cask Strength Longmorn 1969 33 yr old
Pale gold color. Generous, sweet malt and caramel nose with just a touch of wood and smoke. Big and more assertively peaty on the palate. Complex, full bodied, and classic. It is absolutely scandalous that Longmorn is not known by more whisky lovers. Outstanding!
