Longmorn 15

Postby Red_Arremer » Mon Oct 06, 2008 2:21 pm

I just picked up two bottles of Longmorn 15 from an out of the way spirits store. Longmorn is a favourite of mine :) , but i was just wondering-- in your opinions, is it worth holding onto these to try to sell them later?

What are these bottles worth to people?

Thanks in advance for any guidance you offer.

There is a fairly large group of supporters for the Longmorn 15. From what I can tell, most believe it to be a superior product to the newer 16.

It is hard to say whether it would be worth holding the bottles for resale later. It might take quite sometime to realize any significant advance in price with the current murky nature of the economy.

Thanks for the advice. I'll probably just drink it, then. :P

yeah, maybe its better than the 16yo - still it is no great malt. :sleep:

I can think of a dozen others better in the 50 Euro range.

Can't say what the collectors will make of this. But I have a certain feeling that this won't be another Black Bowmore.

Hi all,

as far as I can remember I liked the 15yo more than the 16yo. But the posh bottle with that leather-like thing round the bottom makes it special somehow. Sometimes you are tempted by the package. But after all, it's not a "bad" whisky at all.

Cheerio!

Lomgmorn 15 is such a good dram ! Drink it ! :thumbsup:
The 16 seemed to me way more austere, dryer and honnestly, I don't care for it much *especially considering the extra £*
But 15 is sweet wood and spices.. delicious :P
