20/11/2016 Nachspiel with the Swissky Mafia

One dram did the rounds, last night, that JS had and told me I had to try. I did not, so as to avoid saturation (whether I succeeded is debatable). Today, however, I will have it.

Longmorn 22yo 1969/1991 (61%, GMP Cask, C#3716/7, IB/AFA): nose: dusty books and astringent fruit, with perhaps a drop of distant wine. I smelled it last night: it seemed a lot more expressive. Furniture wax, then plums and raisins. Mouth: punchy, citrus-y (lemon and pink grapefruit). It has quite a bit of ginger and white pepper too. Finish: finally, the fruit explodes (mango), alongside nail varnish and gentle pepper. Good, yet I might have enjoyed it more if I had had it yesterday, after all. 8/10
