Longmorn 25 year old- Gordon & MacPhail

Postby matthew2512 » Thu Sep 20, 2007 12:21 pm

Has anyone tried this bottle? at NZ$150, it seems pretty cheap for a 25 year old. Is it worth buying?
Any info would be really appreciated

Have tried it a couple of times and were not overwhelmed.

It is good - but not mindblowing stuff, and priced accordingly IMO.

Others will probably disagree though.

Yes, as it is priced in the lower end for its age, it probably is worth it.

I seem to recall some here at there forums liking more than I - were I you I would wait for a few more replies.

As I recall it has some good sherry flavours but it tastes rather diluted. In terms of whether to buy it - it depends what else you could do with $125. If you've never had an older whisky before then go for it. If the age holds no appeal, then I'd spend my money on younger Aberlour.

I liked it and bought a couple of extra's, being lighter in style, in this case, is not a bad thing.

I think that's a spot-on evaluation!

I think that's a spot-on evaluation - at least on the G&M 25yr Longmorn I have!

I think it's a pretty pleasant drop, and you'll struggle to get a 25yo for this price anywhere else.

I agree with some of the comments above: It's not the greatest dram going around, but it does have a richness and texture that only an older whisky can provide, and I don't think you'll be disappointed by it.

Cheers,
Admiral

Thanks for your thoughts Admiral. I will add it to my list and let you all know what i think. Ive never had a whisky that old before so it should be interesting.
