Longmorn 16 year old

Longmorn 16 year oldLongmorn is the hidden jewel of Speyside, for many years a malt known only to distillers and connoisseurs.

Like the rolling landscape of the Laich of Moray, this is a whisky of subtlety and of delicate, constantly changing shades. Built on the place of the Holy Man and named after St Marnoch, the Longmorn distillery has sheltered its secret since 1894.

Against all adversity, it has been guarded and kept alive by generation of whisky lovers.

An initial big malt flavour that commands a pause revealing a silky rich naturally sweet and quietly complex character. Non chill filtered and aged in Oak for sixteen years.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fresh and green. Notes of apple peel and bramley apple, hints of citrus and herbal notes. There are some notes of balsa wood, calvados and plenty of dry oaken tannins.

Palate: Rich and compact. Notes of lemon zest and a leafy greenness. A good level of tannins develops with a vinous character and spice. The oak is dry and full.

Finish: Long and dry with a zesty quality.
