The Longmorn distillery was built in 1894-95, and the name probably means "Place of the Holy Man" - indeed an old chapel once stood on the site of the distillery. The building was extended twice during the 1970s and is currently owned by Chivas Brothers. Maturation largely takes place in x-Bourbon casks, and the malt remains prized by blenders as well as playing a key role in Chivas's acclaimed 18 Year Old blend.
This extra aged expression from independent bottlers, Gordon & Macphail was distilled in 1973 and bottled in 2012.
Other reviews......thinks about heading into fruit cake territory but hangs back: the sherry is just a little too clean, the vanillas a little too sweet…it opts for a trifle, instead…: complex, almost perfectly weighted and a reminder of what a real, untainted sherry butt should smell like: t24 no spring chicken for sure, but somehow the grape feels as though its juices first flowed only yesterday. The oak, though, does underscore the age with an impressive array of dry toasty notes with hazelnut puree. Remarkably, the barley remains fresh and intact; f23 dries according to the rules with a vague molasses note to the starchy vanillas; a buttery edge offers a degree of oil; b23.5 Longmorn has long been a staple of Gordon and MacPhail. Here you can see exactly why. 43% 95 points
