Longmorn

Postby BruceCrichton » Sun Jun 01, 2003 7:00 pm

I was at the Speyside whisky festival very a month ago and visted both Aberlour and Longmorn and had the chance to sample both whiskies at cask strength from bourbon casks.

The Aberlour tasted like Maker's Mark while the Longmorn was fantastic.

Has anyone ever had any independent bottlings of Longmorn? Has any bright spark ever released a bourbon-cask matured version?

MacKillop's Choice have a Longmorn offering.

It's a single cask, Cask # 5266, distilled in November 1968 and bottled in April 2001.

It was gloriously smooth, with fruit and fudge flavours, and surprisingly, there was little hint of its long time in the wood.

I'll see if I can get the G+M one. Stuff like the 1968 vintage is miles out of my price range.

I heard rumour there will be an OB Longmorn 25 out soon. Don't know what price might be (I assume it won't be cheap!).

I tasted a 25 yr old centenary bottling which was good but not great when I was at the distillery

I have also tried the Centenary 1994 bottling, and I was very impressed. I'm sure it was one of Malt Ad's "Greatest ever" whiskies a few years back, but of course everyone's tastes differ. I tried some Isle of Arran at the weekend which was ok (tastes a bit like a young Glen Grant?) but I really can't work out why Jim Murray raves about it.
