Longmorn 15 Year Old
Revamped in 2012 and now owned by Chivas Brothers, Longmorn distillery’s single malt is an integral element to many of the Chivas Brothers’ blends, including the Royal Salute and Chivas Regal 18 year old.
They also have a long standing and productive relationship with independent bottlers, Gordon & MacPhail of Elgin, who have been responsible for producing some seriously long aged expressions.
Looking back to April 1912, Shinjiro Torii sent one of his proteges to learn all he could about Longmorn’s distillation processes, who, in turn, reported back to Torii all about the distillery and its inner workings which Torii applied when establishing the Yamazaki and then Suntory empires.
To this day, Longmorn also upholds its notoriety for not having fallen out of production at any point in the distillery’s history, which is quite rare.
This bottle is the, now sadly discontinued, 15 year old which has since been superseded by a 16 year old that many feel to be inferior.
