I've looked into it in the last couple of weeks. I checked with the usual online suppliers here in the US, and with the exception of a couple they are all out of the 15, but have the 16. One of them confirmed that the 15 was gone for good.
If I were you, I'd get a few bottles.

Yes its history. The first dram that I could point to and say there was something in this whisky lark. Best get a couple. I have.

Yes if you like it then stock up because it is all but gone now. I have half a dozen or so, because it is a big favourite and I want to enjoy it in years to come. Great stuff that will be sorely missed. :(

The LCBO's stocks do seem to be thining out of Longmorn. I already have 1 open and 2 in reserve, but I think I may buy one more just to be safe.

This is just a great example of a distillery abandoning a product that is very high in quality, re-jigging the age statement to re-brand the bottle in such a way as to justify the price increase. Quite frankly, I would not pay the extra 50 bucks for the wood box the 16 comes in...you can't drink the wood.

Excellent whisky
Sherry and honey

I finished my last bottle a year ago.
I didn't realise that it is not widely available anymore?

They still sell for around 30 GBP here in Sweden.
I will stock up some at once.

I had the 16 at a tasting this week, and wasn't really impressed with it. Haven't tried the 15 but others were saying the 15 is better. Grab it while you can, it isn't coming back....

Any chance of a note? Even a rough one?
