2003 Longmorn 15 Year Old “Advance Sample by Old Malt Cask” K&L Exclusive Single Refill Hogshead Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (200ml) $34.99 View
The Old Malt Cask Advance Sample label is a wonderful way to try an array of malts in an affordable and fun 200ml package. Longmorn, a cult favorite, is usually destined for blends. Owned by Chivas, you can guess where that famous blend gets a huge portion of its fruity top notes as well as body. Sadly the official bottlings of Longmorn tend to be prohibitively expensive. The 16 year is $150 bucks, and while that might not seem crazy in today’s inflation laden market, it’s been $150 for a long time. Built by John Duff in the late 1800s, Longmorn shares many charactistics with its neighbor and sister distillery Benriach which Duff also built 5 years after Longmorn. Marked by long ferments and a weight spirit due to very squat, wide necked stills, the unusually fruity whisky produced here is a favorite of many. Even Masataka Taketsuru of Nikka fame went so far as to model his stills on the Longmorn design when he returned to Japan. This 2003 distilled 15 year old was bottled in January of 2019 at 50% ABV without chill filtration or added color.
