The backbone of great whisky? (Longmorn)
Longmorn is a blenders' favourite. But as a single malt it's both wonderful and frustratingly hard to get. Ian Buxton adds his voice to the Whisky Magazine clamour for more of it

Scotch Malt Whisky Society 7.51 Longmorn Sweet, Rich & Fruity 1984 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.40% 8 Balanced and fine. Worth a look.
Berry's Own Selection Auchroisk 1991 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.60% 7 An interesting dram. The palate is lighter than expected but fresh and lively. Perfect companion for a fruit salad with a ginger icecream.
Berry's Own Selection Longmorn 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Well balanced. A real wee sweetie.
Berry's Own Selection Longmorn 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 A perfectly pretty dram but it is almost too light. Even delicate whiskies need backbone.
Berry's Own Selection Longmorn 1992
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 What a bizarre bottle...musty nose and fragrant palate.
Blackadder Longmorn 1973
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.90% 7 This mahogany dram looks like a winter warmer, and that is how I would use it.
Cooper's Choice Longmorn 1975, 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Complex, as Longmorn always is, but I wonder about the cask.
Dewar Rattray Longmorn 1984 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00% 7 Very pretty and summery. A good antidote if you feel you might be turning into a phenol-guzzling loony.
Dewar Rattray Longmorn 1990 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.30% 7 I loved the aroma. After that the stern, impenetrable palate was frustrating but in keeping with the mood. A good, old-fashioned Speysider.
Gordon & MacPhail Longmorn-Glenlivet 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 The most honeyed Longmorn I have tasted. A breakfast malt.
Longmorn 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00% 8 I had never noticed the rose water note before, I also find it in Linkwood – from the same valley.
Longmorn 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00% 8 A rewarding marriage of weight and elegancy.
Longmorn 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00% 8 That frisky Speysider judiciously bottled at 45% has a lot to deliver. Will certainly light up a zen moment.
Longmorn 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.00% 8 Great balance and depth. At last! Longmorn gets the bottling it deserves.
Longmorn 17 Years Old, Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.20% 8 Maybe not as balanced as the classic 15 year-old. But who would turn one's nose up to a Longmorn? So rare, so satisfying. Yummy.
Longmorn 1976 31 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.30% 8 A natural beauty. Rich and elegant, without ostentation.As harmonious as a concerto from Mozart.
Longmorn 31 Years Old Bottle for the Whisky Fair
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.80% 8 An extremely complex – and for me, pleasant – nose is matched by a dense and demanding palate.
Old Malt Cask Longmorn, 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 7 A nice dram but a bit thin. Easy to forget.
Private Collection Longmorn 46 Years Old, 1964
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.90% 7 I'm the biggest fan of Longmorn but here the distillery's lost in an oak forest.
Selected by Berry's Longmorn 1992 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 This has some characterful notes, but not enough to raise it into the echelons of other whiskies of comparable age.
Wemyss Vintage Malts Honey Harvest 13 Years Old 1997
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Has substance but light enough to make a fine aperitif/Highball.
Wilson & Morgan Longmorn 1990 Marsala Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 This highly respected whisky lives a blamelessly quiet life near Elgin. One little drink of Marsala and the Lossie goes all Mediterranean.
