Interesting fact… Longmorn 1971 (Gordon and MacPhail) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Longmorn 1971 (Gordon and MacPhail) whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Lots of fruit, thick and rich. Cut grass, mint, floral, oak.
Palate: Cocoa, hints of smoke, sherry, very complex, mint, polish, toffee.
Finish: Sherried peels, rich oak, spices.
I made this bottle a gift for my 40th Birthday and I really liked it, but I expected it to have much more depth and be more complex. Nevertheless it has been an very interesting experience.
