LONGMORN DISTILLER’S CHOICE
SINGLE MALT SCOTCH
Longmorn is regarded as one of the ‘best kept secrets’ of the Scotch whisky industry. The malt produced there has long been used in a number of the most famous blends on the market.
This is the entry-level malt in the new range and was released in early 2016. The Distiller’s Choice, which was released earlier this year, is joined by a re-invented version of the 16 years old and a new 23 years old expression.
The Longmorn distillery was founded in 1894 by John Duff and is located about three miles south of Elgin in the Speyside region of Scotland. This is a smooth, triple-cask matured single malt Scotch whisky, offering a new interpretation of the brand’s renowned classic toffee flavours.
Immediately sweet and malty. Aromas of toffee, caramel and malted barley, plus hints of white chocolate and candied orange.
A hit of sweetness. Toffee and caramel evolving into butterscotch. Malt adds a bittersweet dimension. Underneath are soft and gentle wood spices, ginger and hints of chocolate and orange.
Slightly short but sugary sweet. Sweetness lingers as malt and wood spices fade. This is followed with mild pepper as well, rolling out some nice, mellow warmth.
