A lovely full-bodied Speysider from the Longmorn distillery, Jim Murray gave this 15 year old 93 points.
The nose is quite feinty with notes of wood and soft calves leather. There are hints of wood shavings and copper with barley sweetness and toasted cereal notes. The palate is well oaked with a buttery mouthfeel and superb balance. There are some toasty cereal notes and a nuttiness with juicy barley and spice. The finish is long and full of barley and developing aridity.
Longmorn is top class!
I could write 20 pages on how good this whisky is. Since it is no longer made I will just say that if your lucky enough to find a bottle anywhere, do not mess around and just buy it. Your life will be better for it!

One of the greatest 15 year olds ever.... get a bottle if you can ever find one!

Quite the finest single malt I've tasted since sampling a lovely Macallan some forty odd years ago. Modern Macallan is no longer the same. Aghast to note that this fine 15-year-old Longmorn (45% vol.) has been discontinued which, although not mentioned on the bottle labelling, I believe to have been non chill filtered given that I noted the tell-tale clouding when adding water. Rating: 5 star. Have its successor, the 16-year-old, (48% vol.), in a well presented bottle. Have not tasted yet. Trust it will meet my expectations.
