Re: replacement for 15yr longmorn reccomendations?
I honestly don't think there's another single malt out there that 'replicates' the flavour profile of the Longmorn 15 Year Old... It really is/was a unique and quite excellent pour!
That said, I would concur that the Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel and Aberlour 16 Year Old Double Cask each offer complexities and delicious tastes. I might also toss the 16 Year Old Glenlivet NÃ durra Cask Strength into this group as a worthy alternative. The Clynelish 14 Year Old is equally complex, but here we're dealing with a totally different flavour thrust - some (like me) love it and some, well... Strathisla 12 Year Old is yet another whisky that, in terms of its deft balance between malt and oak as well as sweetness and dryness, comes close to the Longmorn 15YO.
