Long John

Acquired 3rd October 2013. Part of my ‘Customs & Excise’ collection.

72/100 – Whisky Bible 2006 (for modern version)

Thanks to the wonders of Ebay I’ve bought myself the 2009 and 2006 versions of the Whisky Bible. Long John was missing in 2013 and 2009 but I found it in 2006 and…..oh dear, only 72/100. This means “usually drinkable but don’t expect the earth to move”. I’m not sure when my bottle was produced but I’m hoping it was from a better vintage than 2006. I know it’s 1990s or earlier. But since it’s a blend I can always throw some lemonade or ginger ale into it if it clearly needs some outside assistance.

Here’s Ben of ‘A Dram A Day’ with his review on You Tube (Sept 2016):
