Longmorn IBs

Postby andrewfenton » Tue May 31, 2005 2:48 pm

Anyone tried any of the cheaper ones? I really like the 15yr OB, but it seems to be one of those distilleries most review sites don't rate, so it's hard to find suggestions of other bottlings to try.

I am a great fan of the 15yr Longmorn, I think you'll struggle to find much cheaper than that one.

Gordon & MacPhail do have a range of Longmorn's starting with a 12yr (£24.60) and going up to a 33yr (£64.53) plus a 30yr Sherry finish csak strength (£81.90).

If you find any others please let me know.

Cheers

A really good bottling of Longmorn I purchased recently was the cask strength 14 year old from Dewar Rattray, which was quite reasonably priced, too.
In fact I got this on the very same day that I visited the distillery, and can confirm that the nose is an exact match for the distillery smell! Talk about terroir!

Cheers.

Thanks - anyone tried the 1995 cask strength? Only £25, so pretty tempting.
