This is a 20 year Longmorn that was aged in what I presume to be ex-bourbon casks and bottled by Berry’s at 55.6% ABV.
Nose: Oak with sweet berries with intense vanilla developing overall. Some mint notes after awhile, but overall strikes me as very similar to a bourbon nose.
Palate: Berries and vanilla fade somewhat as the heat dials up. Plenty of spice arriving on the rear palate.
Finish: Short and dry – oak lingers with a bit of spice.
Rating: 84/100 – Finish is a bit of a letdown but overall a pleasant Longmorn.
Value for the money: This was $99 at Total Wine and I think that price is pretty fair for a 20 year expression.
