Now I've only snuck a peek at the book, I don't own the 2008 yet, as it MAY have been another whisky, but I'm pretty certain it was the Longmorn 16, because it is a great distillery, and the 15, if you can find it, IS great, so knowing it's being discontinued, i was especially keen to see what JM thought of the new 16.
the packaging looks a bit OTT, and doubtless expensive in itself.
go for the 15 while you can!
He also hated the new Bowmore 18, which I loved when offered 2 generous samples at the vintage House. As I recall, the finish lasted all the way to Croydon East...that's a walk to Oxford Circus from Soho, a tube to victoria, and a train to Croydon.
OTOH the finish on the 'Farclas 15( a "JM" 95 also as I recall) was gone by the time i reached Tottenham Court Road station from Milroy's - a 7 minute walk at most.
so there you go! What does Serge say about the Longmorn 16?
At least we all agree the 15 is mighty fine...and still less than £40 whan last I spied a flagon o' the stuff...
