Tasting note

  • Appearance : acajou.
  • Nose : riche, concentré. L’influence du vin de Xérès est somptueuse d’onctuosité et ses amers épicés font preuve de beaucoup de noblesse (noix grillée, muscade). Puis, de la verveine vient aromatiser une séquence particulièrement fruitée (orange sanguine, abricot, melon). Il évolue de manière originale sur un rancio chocolaté et praliné.
  • Palate : onctueuse, rafraîchissante. Elle commence exactement là où le nez s’arrête, en délivrant des notes de chocolat. Du cuir, du miel d’amandier et des fleurs capiteuses (genêt, rose) procurent au milieu de bouche beaucoup de puissance et d’enthousiasme. Des épices (cannelle, muscade, gingembre râpé) côtoient ensuite des fruits secs (raisin, datte, figue).
  • Overall : longue, soyeuse. Le gâteau au chocolat qu’elle nous fait goûter est absolument délicieux. L’amertume de la fève de cacao, les sucres des fruits confits (grenade, citron), les grains de sel apportés par le xérès et l’acidité des raisins se répartissent le palais à parts égales. Des fleurs capiteuses et épicées (chèvrefeuille, lys) parfument une arrière-bouche exaltante. A son tour, la rétro olfaction est chocolatée. Le verre vide est marqué par le tabac à pipe et par les fruits d’automne (châtaigne).
The brand

The brand

Although Longmorn does not enjoy the same “touristic renown” as its counterpart Strathisla, the quality of its malt whisky makes up for this. Both are owned by Pernod Ricard and are essential components in the Chivas blend, although Longmorn has a more unique and naturally fruity, gourmet character, which lends itself to bourbon or sherry cask ageing.

Merchant

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

The Cask Strength Collection of single malt and single grain whiskies is without doubt one of the most appreciated ranges. Each release is bottled undiluted, unchillfiltered and usually consists of a single cask. To help the consumer appreciate their whisky at more than a purely aromatic and gustatory level, Signatory Vintage takes care to display on each label, with great precision, the region of production, the date of distillation and bottling, the type of cask used, its number and the number of bottles of the same nectar that were produced. This range thus offers some fascinating facts, in addition to exceptional quality!
