Unlike the official Longmorn version, this bottling is just 10 years old and the alcohol degree is 43%. I do not know if this is the reason of my disappointment, but my impression was from the very beginning that this was not a very great whisky.
The aromas are not really impressive and the taste remind me some young spirits. The prestige of the collection did me let this bottle a second chance.
It is true also that this bottle is rather cheap compared to other bottlings in the same collection.

The second tasting did change nothing to my first conclusions..
A rather discrete nose with hints of cut grass, menthol and pepper recalls a Lowland whisky. In the palate, a great freshness and little character. The malt seems to be too young.
The finish is pleasant, no more. The typical complexity of Speyside malts is hard to find in this bottling.
