Longmorn 16 Year Old

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Longmorn 16 Year Old to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution, but until then, here are some alternatives:

Longmorn 16 Bottling Note

Released to promote Longmorn as a super premium single malt maker, this edition replaced the previous 15 year old. The relaunch was certainly effective as a means to display the distillery's unique Speyside character, as this superb 16 year old was distilled using natural ingredients from the surrounding area, including local spring water, barley from Moray and peat from nearby sources. Just lovely.

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.

Longmorn 16 Year Old Reviews

Nice whisky

Nice whisky. Don't love it, but do appreciate it. Not my favourite.

2nd May 2020


Smells strongly; hazelnut, jam and citrus zest, almond, berries and cream, rose. Taste is oil heavy, big creamy oily nutty chewy caramel. Lasting nutty flavor

So smooth!!!

Awesome, finished my first bottle, had bought it over 10 yrs ago. Loved it. So smooth

27th October 2019

Fruit notes, clean finish.

This competed with bottles at our annual Scotch tasting that cost three times as much and still stood strong. I was impressed.

Truly Great Speyside Malt

I loved the previous bottling but I think this 2016 one is even better. There are a lot of fruit flavors especially on the finish which has a nice oily texture. It has features like a great Balvenie but maybe even better. Very smooth drinking and I love the finish.

Pick 1 up and enjoy

Really nice

I really enjoyed this whiskey. It came highly recommended and even though I usually prefer “smokier” whisky, I couldn’t get over the silky smooth body to this dram. Super long finish and very complex palate.

27th May 2018

One of the best Speysides.

If you like that apple/citrus X vanilla thing that Balvenie is famous for, you must try Longmorn 16. It's all of that with a little cigar box note, some cereal, too. I think it's one of the best expressions of the region.

Will be always in my collection

48% but no need to add water cause it is gentle enough to drink and smell. Very good vanilla and milk chocolate taste. Very good for weekend evenings!

Nothing superb, but ...

I picked up a bottle of this stuff at my whisky shop for a good price 69 british pounds and this is what i can tell you, this whisky needs to discovered, take your time and find the flavours and you will find it is a very nice dram, but that is all it is. The same day I also purchased after a tasting the Arran 14 and that blows this away, so a good whisky but at the regular price point, not worth it, not good enough, not as good as the Longmorn 15.

Great Value for a high quality dram

Well balanced. Great Spice & Body. Lovely presentation too.

22nd October 2016


The title sums it up. I gave up drinking Scotch whisky for a smoother Irish whiskey, but now I've tried Longmorn...

29th May 2016

Awesome scotch

Oh my!! Outstanding scotch.

Get it while you can

It seems that the 16yo 48% expression is being replaced by a same-priced NAS (garanteed to be at least 3 years old) and watered down to the legal limit of 40%. But, to compensate, it is now called Distiller's Reserve. Another distillery replacing good entry level offerings with marketingware. My guess is that the Whisky crash of the 1980s will be nothing in comparison to the upcoming Whisky crash of 2020 (if not sooner), and that few Whisky enthusiasts will shed a tear.

The hidden gem!!!

My favourite. Hands down. Strangely, not many people have heard of it. Last holiday season I was able to secure the one and only bottle available in the entire province of Ontario, Canada. So, pick it without blinking... or it will be gone :)

Recently bought a bottle of this at the airport. I was pleasantly surprised as other 'punts' at an airport have not ended well. I would agree with the description MoM has on it's site and as a drinker on generally Speyside/Irish I found very satisfying, it has all the up front fruit I like and would agree with the tannins comments but for me the finish was a little sweeter than described. Would recommend and will be savour ever last measure!!

don't run out

outstanding! this is one scotch I replace before I run out.

31st May 2015

Improves with each sip

My first taste, I was left a little underwhelmed not quite getting it but this was during a taster session involving multiple whiskies. A few days later, tried again and noticed the rich complex spice and velvety body. Couldn't think of another whisky quite like it. The other night watched a movie and had a few drams with ice and it just rocked. Very classy and I think maybe one of those that almost needs to breathe a little in order to peak. Giving it residency status in my cabinet. I can see myself drinking this one for many years.

The author of the comment "Not very impressed, still nice though".
A long while after the other comment, the development in the bottle which is now about .65 left of original content.
The flavor has become increasingly complex and sweet with a very interesting "development" which to me taste like malty oak etc, the finish is longer now and almost assumes a slight licorice and anise taste. Further the aroma has developed a nice fresh apple juice note to it.

RRA Review of Longmorn 16

I usually drink Oban,,, and really enjoyed this new Longmorn 16.....
Really soft and mild on the front end, but followed by a edgy, spicy, finish....with a lingering, crisp, zesty sensation. Oban is still one of my favorites but this is a close second,, and for me says a lot.

Yes Please

I started drinking Whisky just over 50 years ago, I have sampled many, especially the pure malts, over the years, and have recently been hooked on "Highland Park", However, my soon to be ex son in law (don`t ask)has just given me a bottle "Longmorn 16 Year Old", he really must hate me, because it is going to cost me a lot money to keep buying this superb nectar.

10th June 2014

Not very impressed, still nice though.

A weak 7, first sips have some very nice "explosion" of sweetness and peppery spice but it dissipate rather quickly and i was just left with a harsh dryness in my mouth.
A very good looking bottle but i wish the innards matched its container in that regard. But for this price its not enough, will not buy again.

Delayed explosion

Unbelievable taste effect: about 1 second after taking a sip, the explosion starts - like a miniature big bang of various shades of flavors. This persists for a very long time. I tasted this malt with my niece and nephew one evening at the cottage. And now their mother is quite angry at me... ;-)

22nd November 2012

Simply the Best

Magic. An explosion of tastes that leaves you wanting more and more and more.....................hic.

19th November 2012

The fullest flavor

It's as if this spirit stimulates every area of the flavor palette simultaneously. An absolute explosion of flavor. And then... It just goes and goes. A remarkable whiskey.

1st June 2012

second to your own

They say this is every Master Distiller's second most favourite single malt.

Naturally second to their own!

13th October 2011

Rich and Golden

Description as per the tasting notes plus a rich. lingering after taste.
