A 1966 vintage Longmorn from legendary Italian whisky importer Moon Import, aged in a sherry cask and bottled in 1985.
Nose: exactly the same whisky as the 1962, only with more power and a slightly narrower profile that may well come from the much higher ABV. Quick, let’s water it down… With water: that didn’t quite work, as the whisky didn’t really get any more complex, rather a tad metallic and strangely herbal. Now, it’s still a brilliant old whisky, he’s just having a little trouble after the 1962.
Mouth (neat): exactly the same comment as with the undiluted nose, it’s rather close to the 1962, only much more powerful and spicier. With water: excellent now, maybe not as complex as others but the profile is great. Campari, oranges, ginger.
Finish: long, still on oranges and ginger. Cinchona. Comments: very, very good, but there are so many stunning old Longmorns.
