Doubtless one of Scotland’s hidden gems, and a bit of a cult-malt amongst those who know where to look, this is Longmorn’s new non-age-stated whisky. This lovely Speyside bottling is matured in not one, not two, but three different cask types: former bourbon barrels, Oloroso Sherry casks and hogsheads. The distillery has recently undergone a little bit of a rebrand, and this has changed the bottles so that they now feature and intriguing soft faux-leather base – perfect for protecting bottom of the bottle! The whisky itself shows of Longmorn at all its buttery, creamy best, with lovely flavours of sweet cereal, Sherry, vanilla custard and over-ripe bananas. The different cask types have really influenced the whisky, and to its benefit. A great bottling of a top-class distillery.
The leather "belt" base of the bottle is specifically to stop the bottle making a noise when being picked up or put down on the drinks cabinet. Perfect for sneaky husbands :)
