The Dramble reviews SMWS 7.210 Fruit matrix

Bottle Name: 7.210 Fruit matrix

ABV: 48.5%
Distillery: Longmorn
Bottler: Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Flavour Profile: Old & dignified
Region: Speyside

Well-aged Longmorn delivered from a refill ex-bourbon hogshead. Old & dignified profile.

Nose: Expressive and fresh with a perfumed bouquet – rose water, strawberry icecream, Eton mess and cotton candy sit with cigar boxes and pencil shavings. In the background just a touch of salinity and delicate honeysuckle florals. The addition of water brings out lemon balm, orange peels and a touch of charred cask.

Taste: A waxy arrival with plenty of mouthfeel and lots of mint choc chip (icecream and After Eights). Lemon curd, rich tea biscuits and steep fruit tea sit alongside burnt cigars, charred cask ends and almonds. Dilution introduces peach and apricot – part fresh, part baked in puff pastry.

Finish: Medium to long with some vegetal notes of boiled potatoes and olives alongside herbal tea.

An interesting floral Longmorn with plenty of character, but not quite as much obvious maturity. Entirely pleasant, but not rocking my world.

Score: 84/100
