A fantastic bottling of single malt from cult Speyside distillery Longmorn. This particular dram has been bottled by Gordon & MacPhail for their long running Distillery Labels series.
This is a 2005 vintage that has been matured in first fill sherry hogsheads and refill Bourbon barrels. It was bottled in 2019 with an age of around 14 years.
This Longmorn serves up notes of rich sherried dried fruits (prunes, raisins and dried cranberries), some chewy marshmallow, orange rind, allspice, nuts, slight coffee, grapes, black pepper, baked apple, biscuity malt, dark oak and vanilla.
Bottled at 43% ABV for a touch more depth and body, this is a perfectly balanced whisky.
Charmingly presented with a retro style label.
