Longmorn distillery was founded in 1893 and began production in 1894. As stated on their website – “Longmorn has quietly provided a sweet and deeply fruity component to a multiplicity of blends since its founding. Its ferments are long, the distillation takes place in eight thick-necked stills, giving a make which is weighty enough to age well in both ex-Sherry and ex-Bourbon.” To find out more on the history of Longmorn Distillery there is some great info on scotchwhisky.com.
It is not the most well-known single malt but Longmorn distillery has won awards for their 16-Year-old expression. So imagine the beauty of a Longmorn that has been ageing in an ex bourbon hogshead for a full forty years. Forty-year-old whisky is not something that is readily available. Bottled last year in 2015, these bottles are a piece of Scottish history. Serge Valentin of Whisky Fun.com has one of the most read online whisky forums and has stated that Longmorn has dipped in and out of his top 10 whiskies in the last few years. (Check out his website for tons of whisky reviews.)
Only 196 bottles were left in this cask (butt), not surprising considering the amount of time the whisky lived in there for. The angels have had a nice share with this one! One of only two bottlings Malts of Scotland have offered in a beautiful fur lined presentation box – one being the Port Ellen 1982 (which we have sold out of) and the other, this new bottling of Longmorn 1975.
