Nose: Fresh and green. Notes of apple peel and bramley apple, hints of citrus and herbal notes. There are some notes of balsa wood, calvados and plenty of dry oaken tannins.
Palate: Rich and compact. Notes of lemon zest and a leafy greenness. A good level of tannins develops with a vinous character and spice. The oak is dry and full.
Finish: Long and dry with a zesty quality.
RRA Review of Longmorn 16
Improves with each sip
My first taste, I was left a little underwhelmed not quite getting it but this was during a taster session involving multiple whiskies. A few days later, tried again and noticed the rich complex spice and velvety body. Couldn't think of another whisky quite like it. The other night watched a movie and had a few drams with ice and it just rocked. Very classy and I think maybe one of those that almost needs to breathe a little in order to peak. Giving it residency status in my cabinet. I can see myself drinking this one for many years.

The author of the comment "Not very impressed, still nice though".
A long while after the other comment, the development in the bottle which is now about .65 left of original content.
The flavor has become increasingly complex and sweet with a very interesting "development" which to me taste like malty oak etc, the finish is longer now and almost assumes a slight licorice and anise taste. Further the aroma has developed a nice fresh apple juice note to it.

I usually drink Oban,,, and really enjoyed this new Longmorn 16.....
Really soft and mild on the front end, but followed by a edgy, spicy, finish....with a lingering, crisp, zesty sensation. Oban is still one of my favorites but this is a close second,, and for me says a lot.

I started drinking Whisky just over 50 years ago, I have sampled many, especially the pure malts, over the years, and have recently been hooked on "Highland Park", However, my soon to be ex son in law (don`t ask)has just given me a bottle "Longmorn 16 Year Old", he really must hate me, because it is going to cost me a lot money to keep buying this superb nectar.

A weak 7, first sips have some very nice "explosion" of sweetness and peppery spice but it dissipate rather quickly and i was just left with a harsh dryness in my mouth.
A very good looking bottle but i wish the innards matched its container in that regard. But for this price its not enough, will not buy again.
