Heh, this time for sure I won't first start with head to head comparison (peek the Oban 14Y.O. thread).
I also ordered one blended whisky *gasp* in the same time, please look kindly upon me , that is Black Bottle.
It is 10 Y.O. version of the black bottle that I'm receiving, I do have quite high hopes on it. Because it would be quite nicely priced bottle for evening gatherings.

Longmorn is a very underrated whisky and I think that it's the star of the Seagram/Chivas stable.
It doesn't help that you can't get it supermarkets. Until you can get it there, it will remain a well kept secret.
My folks are divided on the Black Bottle 10 yr old. The 10 yr is hard to find where I live.
My grandad thought it was brilliant but my mum, my gran and my friend all thought is wasn't as good as the standard bottling.
L15 is lovely whisky! Where as I keep Highland Park 12 Y.O. and Talisker 10 Y.O. as milder Lagavulin this L15 could be noted as milder Laphroaig. In taste there is some lovely rough components maybe it is bit peppery. Too bad that my skills are yet so modest that I can't separate taste into components. But after one tasting I would rate this to on the same level as HP12 and T10 and that is 8.75 (9-), let's see whether it scores more in the long run.
