Private Collection 1966 from Longmorn Distillery
Featured as part of our 2019 Summer Collection, Private Collection 1966 from Longmorn Distillery has been matured in a first fill Sherry butt. This cask has gifted the spirit a medley of sweet fruitcake aromas and dark fruits on the palate, leading to a hint of oak on the finish.
Intense sweet fruitcake aromas align with brown sugar, sticky prunes, and candied citrus peel. Spice provides warmth with cinnamon and clove. Hints of vanilla come to the fore followed by forest fruits. A delicate oak smoke is present.
Sweet with bursts of pepper. Steeped dark fruits - blackberry and ripe cherries envelop warming spice leading to flavours of liquorice with dried tobacco and oak.
Long; mulled fruits and charred oak providing a subtle ash finish.
