My reason for asking is that I was just reading the notes on this site for Longmorn 15 yo. The one that Jackson and Broom tasted was 45%. I just opened a bottle that is 40%. Both of their notes are very vague - sweet being the main focus. But would mine be more sweet than theirs, as theirs has more alcohol? It was very sweet (a bit too much for my taste even).
Also, why do distillers bottle things at different alcohol percentages (other than CS)? Is it just a tax issue, or are they trying to alter flavour?
I bought this bottle about 6 or 7 months ago.C_I wrote:40% for a Longmorn? Have they released a new edition, I thought it has been 45% for a long time.
I notice quite frequently when reading the notes here or in books that what I can get differs from what they tasted. It seems that a lot of the whiskys sold in Europe at 45% or thereabouts come here (Canada) at 40%.
